Princess Anastasia Petrović-Njegoš of Montenegro (
23 December 1868in Cetinje, Montenegro– 25 November 1935in Cap d'Antibes, France) was the daughter of King Nikola I Petrović-Njegoš of Montenegro (1841-1921) and his wife, Milena Vukotić(1847-1923).
Anastasia had divorced her first husband, George Maximilianovich, 6th Duke of Leuchtenberg (1852-1912), in 1906. They had two children, son Sergei (1890-1974) and daughter Elena (1892-1971). Six months later (1907) she was married to Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich of Russia (1856-1929), but the marriage was childless. Both her husbands were grandsons of Emperor Nicholas I of Russia (1796-1855).
Both were deeply religious
Orthodox Christians, with a tendency to mysticism. Since the Montenegrinswere a fiercely Slavic, anti-Turkish people from the Balkans, Anastasia reinforced the Pan Slavtendencies of Nicholas.
Anastasia and her husband escaped Russia and the
Bolsheviksin 1919 aboard a British battleship, HMS Marlborough. The settled briefly in Italy and later in France, spending winters on the Riviera.
