Thank you. Very interesting and Google did a fairly good job at translating, as these things go.
 I enjoyed reading it.

Funeral of Princess Olga of Montenegro (1859-1896), daughter of Prince Danilo I and Princess Darinka of Montenegro.

As she lived abroad almost all her life, her body was transported from Venice where she died to port in Kotor (first picture). She was buried in Cipur church in Cetinje (second picture is from the funeral), which is also Petrovich-Njegosh crypt next to the Cetinje monastery, alongside her mother and father.

It is interesting that she died just one month before her first cousin Elena married future King Vittorio Emanuele III. As a "landless" Princess, who was, due to intrigues of her mother, banished early from Montenegro by he cousin Nicholas, Olga's chances of getting "properly" married were very slim, so she never got married.
