At the turn of the twentieth century, when still married to Princess Anastasia of Montenegro, George de Beauharnais, 6th Duke of Leuchtenberg was considered as a possible successor to the childless Alexander I of Serbia.

CS I owe you a star when time allows. I didn't know that fact and also I'm so happy you bumped up this thread! The Eastern European monarchies have always been a great fascination of mine.

But seeing the older posts reminded me of how much I miss pixiecat.

Apparently George preferred his mistress (above his 2nd wife among others):

https://en.wikipedia.org/..._6th_Duke_of_Leuchtenberg

"..When still married to his second wife, George moved in with his French mistress, to the great anger of the morally upright Emperor Alexander III.[11] When told that George was spending his vacations at the coastal town of Biarritz in south-western France, Alexander declared "So the prince is washing his filthy body in the waves of the ocean".[11]

Their marriage was considered "tempestuous and stormy," with George reportedly "insult[ing] and outrag[ing] her from the very first day of their marriage".[12][13] Anastasia was able to obtain a divorce from him several years into their marriage, on 15 November 1906.[12] Various sources attribute George to have been good-looking but a "stupid and rather sorry individual", although these reports were most often in connection with his second wife, who, when arranging her divorce from George, was widely reported to want to do so because she could no longer live with a man of "intolerable stupidity".[14][15] Anastasia later remarried to Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich of Russia, a grandson of Nicholas I of Russia[16] (and on his mother's side a nephew of George's first wife Theresa). She and her sister became famous in Russian society as the "black peril" so called because of their home country of Montenegro, their dark complexions and their interest in occult.[16]..."

"..In 1901, through either the deaths or morganatic marriages of his elder brothers, George became the head of the Russian branch of the House of Beauharnais.[14] At the turn of the twentieth century, when still married to Princess Anastasia of Montenegro, George was considered as a possible successor to the childless Alexander I of Serbia.[17] Alexander was overthrown and murdered in a military coup, and succeeded by Peter I of Serbia..."

Prince Michael III married Countess Julia Hunyady de Kethehy. While in exile, he learned to speak French and German fluently.

https://en.wikipedia.org/...ki/Mihailo_Obrenovi%C4%87

"...He married Countess Júlia Hunyady de Kéthely (August 26, 1831 – February 19, 1919), the daughter of Count Ferenc Hunyady de Kéthely and Countess Júlia Zichy de Zich and Vásonkeő. The marriage was childless, although he had at least one illegitimate child by a mistress whose identity is unknown. While in exile, he learned to speak French and German fluently..."


BUT:


"...Michael wished to divorce his wife, Julia, in order to marry his young mistress, Katarina Konstantinović, the daughter of his first cousin, Princess Anka Obrenović. Both resided at the royal court at his invitation. His plans for a divorce and subsequent remarriage to Katarina met with much protest from politicians, clergy and the general public. His astute and gifted Prime Minister Ilija Garašanin was dismissed from his post in 1867 for daring to voice his opposition to the divorce. However, his divorce never took plac..."

 Yikes


"...On June 10, 1868, Michael was travelling with Katarina and Princess Anka in a carriage through the park of Košutnjak near his country residence on the outskirts of Belgrade.[18] In the park appeared Pavle and Kosta Radovanović in formal black suits, and ponting a loaded gun at the Prince, Kosta approached the carriage. Prince Michael Obrenović recognized him, because of a dispute over his brother Ljubomir. The last words of the Prince, which Kosta himself admitted when on trial were: "Well, it's true." Michael and Anka were shot dead, and Katarina wounded.[19] Further details of the plot behind the assassination has never been clarified; the sympathizers and cousins[20] of the Karađorđević dynasty were suspected of being behind the crime, but this has not been proven..."


"...Anka's granddaughter Natalija Konstantinović was married in 1902 to the Montenegrin Prince Mirko Petrović-Njegoš (1879–1918), whose sister Zorka had married King Petar Karađorđević I in 1883..."
