About her personal situation
Julija Obrenović-Hunjadi was born in Vienna on 28 August 1831. She lived in Vienna before marrying Mihailo Obrenović on 1 August 1853 in Vienna. Upon marrying, she did not convert to Orthodox Christianity but remained Catholic, which enraged the Obrenović family and the Serbian people. In 1859, they came to Serbia. They were not welcomed in Serbia. Đura Daničić gave her Serbian language lessons. Mihailo and Julia’s marriage was a turbulent one. They had a number of crises and Julia wanted a divorce. Although they never officially divorced, she left Belgrade, while Mihailo engaged his niece Katarina. A week after the engagement, Mihailo was assassinated in Belgrade. Julija attended the funeral. She stayed in friendly relations with Milan Obrenović. In 1876, she married Karl Armberg. She died in Vienna on 12 February 1919.
