The Battle of Antivari or Action off Antivari was a naval engagement between the French, British and two ships of the Austro-Hungarian navy at the start of World War I. The old Austrian protected cruiser SMS Zenta and the destroyer were blockading the Montenegrin port of Antivari, when on 16 August 1914 they were surprised and cut off by a large Anglo-French force that had sortied into the Adriatic. The two Austrian vessels were forced to fight an engagement in order to attempt to free themselves. Although Zenta was destroyed, Ulan escaped and those ships of the Austrian fleet which were at Cattaro did not come out of port to meet the Allied fleet. After blockading the Adriatic for a short while the French were forced to withdraw due to lack of supplies.
