King Petar I Karađorđeviž (1844‒1921), the Liberator and the Unifier, is a central figure among Serbian rulers of the 19th and 20th centuries. He was the grandson of leader Karađorđević, educated abroad, a participant in the Serbian Uprising in Herzegovina and Bosnia (1875‒1878), as a brigand leader Petar Mrkonjić, the ruler of Serbia since 1903 and the leader of the Serbian people in the Great War (1914‒1918), which resulted in a liberated and united state - the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.
