Comment:Ruža Kapetanović (later Kovačević) was Milan and Jelena Kapetanović's daughter. Milan Kapetanović (1859–1934, Belgrade) was an eminent Belgrade builder-architect, Minister of Economy in the government of the Kingdom of Serbia, Minister of Housing and Urban Development in the government of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and Professor at Belgrade University's Faculty of Architecture. He was among the first trained architects in Serbia and designed many public buildings in Belgrade. Among other things, he was involved in designing the Serbian pavilion for the Exposition Universelle in Paris (1900), which resembled a church in the Serb-Byzantine style. He also designed the Sephardic synagogue in Belgrade in the 'Moorish' style, which was destroyed in a fire in WWII, as well as many other buildings and villas. Politically he supported the Independent Radical Party, which separated from the People's Radical Party and later became the Democratic Party.
