: 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?
