Montenegro and Serbia were client states of Russia
I posted this information that has a reliable source, but it has been repeatedly removed.
A client state can be a legally independent state that is recognized as being under strong political influence of another state.
I used a reliable source published by the reputable Oxford University.
Here is what the source says: "Thus, by the beginning of the 19th century, Montenegro had assumed the status of a virtual Russian protectorate, with its port of Kotor serving as a base of support for the Russian Black Sea Fleet during its forays into the Mediterranean Sea. Serbia itself became a Russian client state by virtue of the two countries' anti-Turkish interests, but without in the end the political and territorial gains expected from the Russian alliance."--18.104.22.168 (talk) 19:32, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Modern states to occupy former lands of the Kingdom of Serbia
The volatile atmosphere of World War I coupled with Serbia's almost immediate entry into the first Yugoslav in 1918 means that there is some doubt as to the territories of some regions having been internationally recognised as Serbian for the period. From the beginning of 1913 Serbia did have control of much of modern-day Albania, but the finalisation of Kosovo was dependent on Serbia, Montenegro and Greece withdrawing from what would become an independent Albania. Following World War I, Serbia controlled Banat, Bačka and Baranja which placed both Timișoara (Romania) and Pécs (Hungary) in the kingdom. As for modern-day Croatia, it is plausible but I am unsure as to which towns or area may have been controlled by Serbia.
As such I am unsure where I stand on the matter of whether these countries should be stated in the infobox. I am unsure also whether the editors constantly removing the states are doing so on "technical grounds" because they harbour a grudge with the "banned" individual to re-insert them, or whether it really is policy to not include those lands based on the logistical matters of the time. If the maps are correct, then there is no valid argument to suggest that the Kingdom having controlled areas of the said states is unsourced. As such, I favour accuracy but we need to agree on a principle here. Comments please. --OJ (TALK) 10:19, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
