Alexander, the son of Kara George who had ruled Serbia briefly earlier, is forced by the National Party to abdicate as ruler. He had been in this role since September, 1842. He is replaced by Alexander Milosch, who returned as prince after a twenty-nine year exile. Serbia will remain part of the Turkish Empire until 1878. (By John Osborne)
