Pictures taken from:

He was called the father of the study of Serbian folklore because of his collections of fairy tales, songs and riddles.

He was a Serbian philologist and linguist, and also the major reformer of the Serbian language.

Vuk Karadzic was born to parents Stefan and Jegda in the village of Trsic, near Loznica. He was named Vuk(wolf) so that witches and evil spirits would not hurt him.

Jevta Savic Cotric, the only literate person in the region at the time, taught him how to read and write. He was too old for the gymnasium at Sremski Karlovci. Dositej Obradovic refused to teach him.

He wrote a book of over 100 lyrical and epic songs learned as a child and written down from memory.

He went to Vienna in 1813. with Jernej Kopitar. They wrote "Malu prostonarodnu slaveno-srbsku pjesmaricu" i "Pismenica srbskoga jezika".
