Aleksandar Aco Apolonio (sometimes written Apolonijo) was born 11 November 1916 in Kamenari near Herceg-Novi, son of Virgilio, istrian from Piran, and Marica Šuković from Dubrovnik. He was a Dubrovnik lawyer who gained brief notoriety during the Siege of Dubrovnik in the Croatian War of Independence.
Apolonio became leader Autonomist Movement in Dubrovnik, and therefore condemned to 12 years in prison and flees to Cavtat and reborn the Republic of Ragusa with others refugees from Dubrovnik.
During the trial of Slobodan Milošević at the ICTY, a witness had described Apolonio as a Croat, but the Serbian nationalist leader Vojislav Šešelj said as a witness that Apolonio was a "Catholic Serb", Apolonijo only described him like just "Ragusan"
He died in Belgrade, and was buried in his hometown.
