She was the eldest child of the Montenegrin monarch Nicholas I and Milena Vukotić, and the wife of Peter Karađorđević (who would become King of Serbia in 1903, long after her death).

Life

Born in Cetinje, Montenegro at the time when her father was already the reigning Prince of Montenegro (his uncle Danilo II Petrović-Njegoš having died in 1860). Zorka was educated in Russia before returning to Montenegro to be engaged to Karađorđević. The ability of Zorka's father Nicholas to arrange his daughters’ dynastically beneficial marriages cannot be denied; Zorka's sister Elena married the future King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy.
Marriage and children

Described as "exuberant" by one commentator, Zorka married Peter in Cetinje on 1 August 1883 in a Greek Orthodox ceremony.[1]

They had five children:

* Helen (4 November 1884 – 16 October 1962).
* Milena (28 April 1886 – 21 December 1887).
* George (8 September 1887 – 17 October 1972).
* Alexander (16 December 1888 – 9 October 1934).
* Andrew (born and died 16 March 1890).

Zorka died aged just 25 on 16 March 1890 in Cetinje during childbirth and was buried in the Church of St. George in Topola, Serbia.
