Princess Anastasia Petrović-Njegoš of Montenegro (23 December 1868 in Cetinje, Montenegro–25 November 1935 in 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 Montenegrins were a fiercely Slavic, anti-Turkish people from the Balkans, Anastasia reinforced the Pan Slav tendencies of Nicholas.

Anastasia and her husband escaped Russia and the Bolsheviks in 1919 aboard a British battleship, HMS Marlborough. The settled briefly in Italy and later in France, spending winters on the Riviera.
