English: Draga Obrenović (née Lunjevica) (September 23, 1861 in Gornji Milanovac – June 11, 1903 in Belgrade), also known as Queen Draga, was the consort of King Aleksandar Obrenović of the Kingdom of Serbia. She was formerly a lady-in-waiting to Aleksandar's mother Queen Natalija. At the time of her second marriage, she was the widow of Svetozar Mašin, a civil engineer, and was fifteen years older than Aleksandar.
This last threat was the final straw. On June 11, 1903, a group of army officers invaded the royal palace, led by the brother of Draga's late husband. They found Aleksandar and Draga hiding in a cupboard and savagely murdered them, throwing their mutilated bodies from a palace window.
