The history of Montenegro as a state is not so old but the lands where Montenegro is today once were parts of the Illyrian kingdoms and inhabited by Illyrian tribes of Labeatis and Ardians, most notably by King Agron and Queen Teuta. They were part of Roman Empire and Byzantine Empire until the Slavic tribes settled in this area. They created small kingdoms in the area.
Montenegro was not noted for much during the past until in the beginnings of 20th century when became part of Yugoslavia and for the rest of the century had very close relationships with Serbia. It was declared independent in 2006. Cetinje is a city and Old Royal Capital of Montenegro.
