If you like the story of Jelena Anžujska, you are going on a journey that takes you thousands of years back, filled with the smell of thousands of lilac flowers, from the pigeons of gray to dark pink. Jelena Anžujska was the wife of the Serbian King Stefan Uros I, the Hungarian-Byzantine princess of the father of the French-Levantian mother-in-law. Stefan Uros I is the son of Stefan the Firstborn and Anna Dandolo, the granddaughter of the Venetian dictator Enrico Dandol. Marriages were then contracted to the interests of the states. Feelings, fears and anxieties of spouses were ignored. A very young future queen headed for an unknown faraway country, strolling where she was going and how she would live and survive. What is her chosen and the people who are waiting for her. Tearing tears, a fourteen-year-old girl moved toward happiness or misfortune. After an arranged marriage, Uros, whom she had remembered as a Great and Roughly, probably because of the roughness of his voice, decided to make the fragile and delicate princess ease and make her come. He thought what the impression would have left passing through the glacier of an unknown country. In order for a woman to feel surrounded by large unknown people in distant and wild hills. He wanted to show her attachment, to feel welcome and loved and to ease her people's acceptance. Probably for days he was thinking about what and how to do it. When it was supposed to come to Serbia, Uros brought a lilac flower, until then unknown in Serbia, and planted it along the valley with which it was supposed to pass, from Kraljevo to Raska. Since then, lilac has been growing here. Thousands of flowers, from pigeons gray to dark pink, rolled in 1250 in the Ibra valley. In her new homeland, Jelena Anžujska arrived with the fragrance of lilacs, who were planted there under the orders of her future wife. It was a tribute to the respect and tenderness of the ruler Raska towards a woman who at first glance would love the Serbian land. Who was the new ruler, will be shown in the coming years. Everyone admired her education, the fact that she spoke several foreign languages, understood the world and the world. She was one of the most enlightened figures of that time. At her court, she organized a copy of the books she later donated. The banners were made with goldsmiths in Kotor. She had a library, at that time called a bookshop. She founded the first female school in Serbia at the time. In order to help the poor girls, they founded a famous school for poor girls, where they taught them literacy, devotion and manual work with the dowry, and then brought in those who needed help. Queen Jelena worried about the poor, giving them food and clothing, and the sick hurt and cheered. Like other Nemanjići, she built her endowments. Her most famous backyard is the magic monastery of Gradac in which she is buried. History is remembered as a great charity and captain. The Valley of the Ibra will soon become the Valley of the Kings, whose slopes will constantly flicker the sound of the Byzantine chanting.
