Summary/Abstract: Antonije Todorović (Prizren, 1880 - Belgrade, 1971) was an important national worker in the territory of Macedonia and Old Serbia, and one of the people whose work was intentionally suppressed and neglected following the Second World War. Todorović spent all of his life dedicated to the idea of the unity of Serbdom. His name does not appear in the literature, but archival sources allowed for a compilation of his biography. Antonije Todorović left the memoirs, Revolutionary Action of the Serb People in Turkey, between 1904 and 1912, a valuable source, which allows one insight into the organizational processes of the revolutionary action of the Serb people, in contrast to the memoirs known so far, which allowed insight only in the concrete battles. The place and the role of Antonije Todorović in the Organization of Serb People in Turkey, as well as his activity in the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, as well as in the later Yugoslavia, could be seen from three aspects: revolutionary, educational, and political.
