Mijatovic aimed to tell the truth about their rule, both good and ill, so that readers might discover why the royals were brutally assassinated in the Queens bedroom. Mijatovic was a personal acquaintance of the royal family, and so the story is told from his perspective, detailing what he knew and observed firsthand. History buffs will find the story of Alexander and Draga a moving tale of political and personal calamity. Serbian writer and statesman CEDOMILIJ MIJATOVIC (1842-1932) was one of the leaders of Serbias Progressive Party. He became the minister of finance at the age of thirty-one and passed many important reforms, including the development of a new currency and protections for the poor. He wrote a number of books in English, including Servia and the Servians (1908) and The Memoirs of a Balkan Diplomatist (1917).
