Milan Obrenović was the eldest son and heir of Miloš Obrenović I. He was ill from his earliest childhood and his health was poor throughout his entire life. He was a student of the Belgrade Higher School, today's University of Belgrade. He had a full curriculum of study, including French and German languages. In 1830, when Serbia obtained its autonomy, Milan Obrenović became the designated heir of his father.
Prince of Serbia
His father Miloš Obrenović I abdicated on 13 June 1839 in favour of Milan. Since Prince Milan "ruled" for only 26 days, no public documents were issued under his name. He died on 8 July 1839, having never regained consciousness. After his death his brother Mihailo Obrenović succeeded to the throne, as Mihailo Obrenović III. Later that year "The first regency" was formed in Serbia.
Due to his illness, and the short period of his rule, it is possible that Milan was never aware that he had become ruler.
