Princess Ljubica was born in Srezojevci on 3rd/14th January 1785. Her father was Before the wedding, Ljubica was “the most prominent girl among all girls from the surrounding”. A year or two before the outbreak of the uprising Milos Teodorovic Obrenovic, latter Prince of Serbia, who was the brother of Jakov and Milan Obrenovic saw her.

Leaving his son-in-law, Sava, perhaps 1802 or 1803, before finally settling with his brother Milan, Milos crossed Srezojevci through Pranjani on his way to Brusnica.

On one of the river streams he saw Ljubica and her mother, who bleached the canvas. “Then I was past 20 years, and yet I was as a young boy. As soon as I saw Ljubica, my eyes remained on her. She and her mother, they noticed me, came out of the water, and lowered their skirts. I jumped over the water and on the other bank I sat down to take care of myself. I sat there for an hour, only to endure watching Ljubica. She was beautiful like a miracle. ”

When brother Milan gave him some livestock, Milos frequently came to Srezojevce, near Vukomanović, to see Ljubica again.

His friend in cattle-breeding Turk Ćor-Zuka came behind Milos’s secret, and he admitted that he loved Ljubica. Turk then took on himself to convince Milan to ask Ljubica from Vukomanovic.

The question of Milos’s marriage was re-established only after the outbreak of the First Rebellion. From the prince’s story, we learned that Duke Milan had asked Ljubica and brought her to their home. “When I was married I was about 24 years old.”

Milos and Ljubica married in spring of 1804. Milan urged Karadjordje to cum most likely, at the time of the conquest of Rudnik on March 18, 1804. Prince Milos and Princess Ljubica had eight children, four boys and four girls. The parents have survived only two children, son Mihailo, daughter Petrija and Jelisaveta’s mother.

Because of the murder she committed against Petrija, one of the mistresses of Prince Milos, she lived for some time separately from him, and even at the time of the attack on Prince Milos openly stood on the side of the opposition.

On the other hand, after Milos’s departure from Serbia in 1839, she participated in the movements for the return of her husband to the country.

Of all the Obrenovic who had been expelled from the country, Ljubica last withdrew trying until the last moment to save the Dynasty.

Overpowered by sorrow about the fate of her family rather than from disease, she died in Novi Sad on 14th/26th May 1843. She was buried in the Monastery of Krusedol.
