Was Nikola politically ambitious for his daughters to make good matches and marry well or did the girls just have that something special and exotic that attracted princes and future kings.

TampaBay , have you seen MOntenegrin Royal weddings, a book that was published in Cetijne, about a decade ago ...perhaps earlier.  Includes material about the weddings of all the princesses, etc

No, I have not seen this book.

I did not know that such a book existed.

Other than true love, how did all the Montenegrin princesses manage to make such good alliances/matches.  They all seem to be or ended up being love matches.

Depends on how you describe "love matches" -- the king had the good sense to send his children to Russia -for their education where they came into contact with all the right people.
