Crown Prince Alexander of Serbia has spoken of the importance of history as new books about his royal dynasty were launched.
Several books about the Karadordevic Royal Family have been published by the “Narodno delo” Publishing House. The launch event, at the Royal Palace in Belgrade, was also attended by members of the Crown Council and Privy Council.
In his welcome speech, Crown Prince Alexander expressed gratitude to the authors and publishers for their contribution in preserving the memory of his ancestors and the history of their people.
He acknowledged that for a time, the name of his family was forbidden in Serbia. Now, he believes that the contributions of his family to the people and country are being remembered properly
The Crown Prince said: “These days are behind us, and we are now talking about the truth and the facts. I am not saying only as their descendant, but as a member of our nation, the contributions of our nation’s leaders from my family to the people and our country were of great significance and deserve to be remembered.“
The authors then presented their books to the audience. The new books are “Peter I, King Liberator” and “Alexander I, the Knightly King,” by Mr. Dusan Babac, a member of the Privy Council, “The Prince in the shadow of history, Alexander Karadordevic,” by author Nebojsa Jovanovic, and “Prince Arsenije Karadjordjevic, The Forgotten Karadordevics,” by Sinisa Ljepojevic.
The event was significant in highlighting the importance of preserving the history and memory of the Royal Family.
The Serbian royal family Karadordevic have played a significant role in Serbia’s history, but after the communist revolution in Yugoslavia, the monarchy was abolished in 1945. Today, Crown Prince Alexander is the head of the family and works to promote cultural and humanitarian causes.
