He was born in Belgrade to Prince Aleksandar of Serbia and his consort, Princess Persida Nenadović. He spent much of his life in exile in France, where he received an education and fought for the French Army in the Franco-Prussian War of 1871. In 1883 he married Princess Ljubica-Zorka of Montenegro, daughter of Montenegro's King Nicholas I Petrović. They had five children: Jelena, Milena, Ɖorđe, Aleksandar and Andrija.
