Princess Milica Petrović-Njegoš, also known as Grand Duchess Militza, (14 July 1866 Cetinje, Montenegro – 5 September 1951 Alexandria, Egypt) was a Montenegrin princess. She was the daughter of King Nikola I Petrović-Njegoš of Montenegro and his wife, Milena Vukotić. Milica was the wife of Grand Duke Peter Nikolaevich of Russia, the younger brother of Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich of Russia, whose wife was Milica's sister, Anastasia.


Milica and Anastasia

Milica and her sister Anastasia were invited by Alexander III of Russia to be educated at the Russian Smolny Institute, which was a school for "noble maids".[1] Both sisters were socially very influential at the Russian imperial court. Nicknamed jointly "the black peril", they were interested in the occult. They are discredited with introducing first a charlatan mystic named Philippe Nizier-Vashod (usually referred to merely as "Philippe"),[2] and then (with graver consequences) Grigori Rasputin to the Imperial family.


Grand Duke Peter Nikolaevich of Russia and Princess Milica were married on 26 July 1889 in Saint Petersburg. The couple had 4 children:
