PhD Boris Milosavljević has published a new book entitled Belgrade Genealogies, published by the Balkan Institute of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (444 pages). The book presents a number of important genealogies, which in some cases cover the period from the time of the Vienna War (1683 – 1699) to the present day. The name “Belgrade genealogies” was chosen because Belgrade has been the capital of the Serbian state since the time of Karageorge’s Serbia (at one time the capital was also Kragujevac). Regardless of the fact that certain families, starting with the rulers, had special ties with some part of Serbia and the Balkans or for official reasons lived in different places during the 19th century, the elite of the society was increasingly attached to Belgrade, as the capital and center of the state. The monograph is the fruit of decades of research work and represents a reliable support and contribution to a better understanding of the social and political life of the Principality and the Kingdom of Serbia, as well as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes and Yugoslavia. Author received the Despot Stefan Lazarević Award for Social Sciences and Humanities for 2020 for the book Belgrade Genealogies.
