Prince Nikola of Yugoslavia (born 15 March 1958),[1] also known as Nikola Karađorđević (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Карађорђевић), is a member of the House of Karadordevic. Currently fifth in the line of succession to the defunct Yugoslavian throne,[2] he is also in the line of succession to the British throne as a great-grandson of Princess Marie of Edinburgh, herself a granddaughter of Victoria of the United Kingdom.


Prince Nikola was born in London to Prince Tomislav of Yugoslavia, the second son of Alexander I, the first king of Yugoslavia, and his first wife, Princess Margarita of Baden. His name was registered at birth as Nicholas Karageorgevitch (Serbian: Никола Карађорђевић / Nikola Karađorđević) in the England & Wales, Civil Registration Birth Index.[3][4]. Both his mother and father were descendants of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. Through his mother, he is a great-grandson of Princess Alice of Battenberg, great-granddaughter of Victoria, and through his father, he is a great-grandson of Princess Marie of Edinburgh, Victoria’s granddaughter. He has one sister, Princess Katarina of Yugoslavia and Serbia, and two half-brothers, Prince George and Prince Michael. He is a first cousin of Alexander, Crown Prince of Yugoslavia. Also through his mother, Princess Margarita of Baden, Nikolas is a great-nephew of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (Consort of Queen Elizabeth II), and a first cousin once removed of Charles, Prince of Wales.
