Background:

Unlike other countries of the Balkan Peninsula, Montenegro was able to maintain its independence from the Ottoman Empire. From the 16th to 19th centuries, Montenegro became a theocratic state ruled by a series of bishop princes; in 1852, it was transformed into a secular principality and later it became part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
