Rare map of Montenegro prepared by Mr. le Comte Fedor de Karacsay (1787-1859) and engraved by Pietro Allodi. The title is in Russian, Arabic and French.
In lower left corner a key and a "Tablaeu statistique du Pays de Montenegro dans l'année 1838", giving the number of families and people for each region. Some of the fortifications are heightened in red.

The Turks took the rule over Montenegro in 1496 and join it to the Skadar province. Irrespective of that fact, Montenegro kept a high level of autonomy, and fully regained its independence in 1645.

Then the spiritual leaders, bishops take the rule in Montenegro and also take over the management of the country. In 1697, the Montenegrin Assembly elected Danilo I as the bishop. At that time the establishment of the Petrovic dynasty has started, as well as their fight for the unity of religion and politics.

The map was printed just a few years after the death of Petar I Petrovic ( 1784 – 1830 ) who was one of the most renowned persons in the Montenegrin history. Lead by him, Montenegro strengthened its independence, and after the great victories over the more numerous Turkish army, it freed itself from the Turkish influence and domination.
