Summary/Abstract: Montenegro formed an alliance with Bulgaria long after the alliances between Bulgaria and Serbia, or Bulgaria and Greece, were formed. It is important to emphasize that, even though Montenegro was one of the main advocates of a Balkan Alliance as a way to open the Easter question since 1910, it was neither informed nor invited to join the process. The silent treatment the Great Powers were giving Montenegro – Russia, Great Britain, Austria-Hungary, and the Balkan countries such as Serbia, Bulgaria and Greece – resulted in the fact that Montenegro accepted an alliance with Bulgaria and, though militarily unprepared, was the first country to enter the war which ended of the rule of the Ottoman Empire in Europe.
