Ljeposlav Perinic, The King of Dolls died on March 19th, 2005

Dear Nenad,

I have sad news: The King of Dolls - mr Ljeposlav
Perinic - died in Buenos Aires on March 19th, 2005.

My extensive presentation about this wonderful person
is at

prepared in four langugages: English, Spanish, Russian
and Croatian. His daughter Mrs Teresa Perinic de
Belofatto helped me very much.

I met Mr. Ljeposlav Perinic in the summer 1999 in
Zagreb, after his friendly telephone call related to
the famous Croatian Glagolitic Texte du Sacre in
France. I learned an unusual story about his unique
collection of more than 350 dolls in national costumes
from over 120 countries, from all five continents. His
invaluable collection contains dolls that he obtained
as gifts from dignitaries, Kings, Queens, Emperors,
Empresses, Presidents, First Ladies, Prime Ministers,
Governors, etc. Among them are Pope Paul VI (the
Vatican), Indira Gandhi (India), Carlos Menem
(Argentina), G.A. Naser (Egypt), Grace Kelly (Monaco),
Haile Selassie (Ethiopia), Farrah Diba Pahlavi - the
First Lady of Iran, Benazir Bhutto (Pakistan), Konrad
Adenauer (Germany), Queen Sofia of Spain, Mao Tse Tung
(China), Dalai Lama (Tibet in China), Enver Hoxha
(Albania), Moise Chombe (Kongo), then


(Nepal), Franjo Tudjman (Croatia), and many others.

How did he collect his dolls? Well, he simply wrote,
and asked for dolls in national costumes. However, the
story has deeper roots:

Many greetings from Zagreb,

Darko Zubrinc
