You're right about Zorka. She never made to queen but she was the "mother" of the Karageorgevics
Are you talking about Princess Zorka? She never became queen, since she died before her husband ascended the throne of Serbia as King Peter I. But she was the mother of King Alexander I, whose namesake grandson if the present-day head of the house of Karageorgevich. He has always styled himself as Crown Prince Alexander, for reasons that the monarchy was long abolished before his father (Peter II, the last king) died.
Despite being a union between dynastic members of two upstart houses (Karageorgevich and Petrovich-Njegosh), you could say that the marriage in 1883 of the future King Peter I of Serbia (the house of Obrenovich ruled at the time) and Princess Zorka (whose father, Nikola I, was not yet a king but was nonetheless the sovereign prince of Montenegro) was an impressive one.
Montenegro provided not only two grand-duchesses to the Imperial House of Russia, but a queen to Serbia and another to Italy.
Not bad for an upstart house.
