In 1839, Prince Milos Obrenovic I of Serbia abdicated in favour of his son Milan, who was very ill and died a few weeks later. Milan Obrenovic II was succeded by his brother, Mihailo Obrenovic III, who was a minor. Mihailo Obrenovic was deposed in 1842, and the Princely throne was occupied by Aleksandar Karagorgevitj. In 1858 Milos Obrenovic Ireturned to the throne, and when he died in 1860, he was succeded by his son Mihailo Obrenovic III.
What I wonder is - what was the reason for the abdication in 1839?
