A beautifully made commemorative locket with a royal cipher beneath a crown. The reverse side features the date December 1862. When we acquired this locket, we thought the mystery that needed solving was the identity of the regal woman in the portrait. We now believe that she is Queen Draga of Serbia (check out the portrait of the queen in the product images), however, a mystery still remains. Queen Draga, an unpopular monarch who was assassinated along with her husband the King in 1903, was born in 1864, two years after the date on the locket. Perhaps it was am important date in Serbian history? In the monarchy? If anyone knows the answer, we are all ears.
