Questions[edit | edit source]

Milan of Serbia[edit | edit source]

The Milan I of Serbia Wikipedia article says, "On January 3, 1889, Milan adopted a new constitution much more liberal than the existing one of 1869." What does "liberal" mean in this context? Also, the term "Russian inroads" is used. What exactly does that mean?

The new constitution was developed because Milan I wanted to consolidate his reign. It also revised the definition of power which was administered by the parliament and the crown. Liberal means that the Serbians got more rights and Jews became full citizens. Slong 19:13, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Discussion[edit | edit source]

Evacuees: during the war children where evacuated to various places of safety.

Women and War: How did the war affect women? What were the effects of removing so many men from daily interaction with women. How did new work opportunities for women affect gender roles?
