Life[edit]

Savić was born in the village of Garaši, south of Belgrade. His father Sava "Saviša" Bošković settled in Garaši from Bjelopavlići (in Montenegro). His paternal great-grandfather Vukašin Bošković was a knez of the Bošković brotherhood in Bjelopavlići.[1]

He participated in the Freikorp of the Austrian Army in the Koča's frontier, in the same unit as Karađorđe.
