a princely (1815–42, 1858–82) and later royal (1882–1903) dynasty in Serbia founded by Miloš Obrenović.
In 1842 the Obrenović family was driven from the country, but in 1858 it regained the Serbian throne. The rulers of the dynasty were Miloš (1815–39, 1858–60), Michael (1839–42, 1860–68), Milan (1868–89, king from 1882), and Alexander (1889–1903). Alexander was assassinated by a group of officers who supported the Karadjordjević family.
