About Nicholas, Crown Prince of Montenegro
Nikola II Petrović-Njegoš, Crown Prince of Montenegro (Cyrillic: Никола Петровић-Његош; Montenegrin: Nikola Petrović-Njegoš) (born 7 July 1944, in Saint-Nicolas-du-Pélem) is the Head of the House of Petrović-Njegoš which once reigned over Montenegro. He is Hereditary Grand Master of the Dynastic Orders of Petrović-Njegoš, St. Peter of Cetinje and Prince Danilo I of Montenegro.
In 2011 Montenegro recognized an official role for the Royal House of Petrović-Njegoš in Montenegro: to promote Montenegrin identity, culture and traditions through cultural, humanitarian and other non-political activities.
The title of the Crown Prince is usually only borne by those persons who held it legally under monarchy and by courtesy after the monarchy ended (as in the case of his second cousin once removed, Alexander, Crown Prince of Yugoslavia). Nicholas II was born decades after the Kingdom of Montenegro was absorbed into Serbia and was thus officially never a Crown Prince as he was never an heir apparent or presumptive of a reigning sovereign. Nevertheless, this assumed title was never disputed by anyone and is considered as held by courtesy.
