  • Short Summary

    King Nicholas I of Montenegro with his troops.

  • Description

    World War One - King Nicholas I of Montenegro (later Yugoslavia) watches his troops depart.

    Shot of King Nicholas, dressed in traditional costume, sitting on a chair on a hillside. VS King inspecting troops, soldiers all start waving. Shot of the soldiers swarming around the King, they too wear traditional style uniforms.

    Another shot of the King sitting looking out at the water with binoculars. 2 officers stand behind the King, looking at map. A small boat crossing the water toward hills. King Nicholas gets off boat with help from soldiers. The King poses on the shore.

    Flash frame of French titles mention encouraging the resistance, so this may be an item released after Montenegro fell to the Germans in 1916.
