About Prince Nikolas Petrovic Njegos
“Nikola Petrović-Njegoš belongs to the Montenegrin royal family through his great-grandfather, Nicholas I, the last king of Montenegro. He is now the last pretender to the Montenegrin throne. He is also related to the Serbian princely family Obrénovitch.
Nikola Petrović-Njegoš’s princely activity, although recent, is part of a nationalist movement to recognize and preserve Montenegro’s independence, as well as to assert the rights of the dynasty Petrović-Njegoš. This dynasty is now officially recognised by the Montenegrin government through the Petrović-Njegoš foundation and the moral and financial recognition of the Petrović-Njegoš family.
She has been exiled in France since the First World War. The Royal Montenegrin Dynasty now has a non-political role of government representation. For example, in 2011, Prince Nikola, as a representative of the Montenegrin government, attended the funeral of Archduke Otto of Habsburg-Lorraine.
Nikola Petrović-Njegoš studied architecture at the National Higher School of the Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 1971, he was admitted to the French Society of Architects. His work has led him to work on various projects in France and Montenegro. He was also able to work with the famous sculptor Shamai Haber.
Nikola’s work Petrović-Njegoš to have his dynastic rights recognized has allowed him to get closer to a country whose language he did not even speak, and his love for France, somehow make him the architect of a bridge between Montenegro and France. In 2016, the French Republic awarded him the title of “Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur”.”
