Petar II Petrović-Njegoš by his hereditary name, of the Njeguši Clan (Serbian Cyrillic: Петар II Петровић Његош, pronounced [pêtar drûɡiː pětroʋitɕ ɲêɡoʃ]), was a Serbian Orthodox Prince-Bishop (Vladika) of Montenegro (Metropolitan of Cetinje), who transformed Montenegro from a theocracy into a secular state. However, he is most famous as a poet and philosopher. Among his notable works include The Mountain Wreath (Горски вијенац / Gorski vijenac), the Ray of the Microcosm (Луча микрокозма / Luča mikrokozma), the Serbian Mirror (Огледало српско / Ogledalo srpsko), and False Tsar Stephen the Little (Лажни цар Шћепан Мали / Lažni car Šćepan Mali). He belonged to the House of Petrović-Njegoš, the Prince-Bishops of Cetinje since 1697.

He is seen as the father of modern Serbian romantic nationalism, known among the folk as the 'wisest Serb head'.
