King Michael I of Romania. Born in Bucharest in 1921 as son of king Carol II. Him became king of the Romanians in 1927 but was overthrown by his father only three years later. Michael returned to throne in 1940. During WW2 Romania was under dictatorship of Ion Antonescu and allied with Nazi Germany. In 1943 Roman Alliance joined to war after Germany attacked to Trieste for killing Hungarian Jewish refugees. In January 1944 Michael I made surprise move and ousted Antonescu and begun negotiate peace with Allies. These weren't easy and Italians and Soviets had much of disbutes over future of Romania. Finally it was decided that Romania would become neutral nation. It too lost whole Dobruja region making Romania landlocked nation.
During post-war years the king supported transition to democracy altough him had still some of power. Michael I was very popular among Romanians and people in other countries. He too held close relationships with other European royal families. His reign saw creation of democratic and stable Romania and economic boost in 1950's and 1960's. Under his reign Romania created close relationships with its neutral neighbor Hungary. Michael even managed approve autonomy to Hungarian speaking Szekely Land which partially placated Hungarian nationalists. Michael I managed keep Romania neutral through Cold War and Cool War altough it wasn't always easy. Communists inside of the country caused some problems and in 1970 relationships with Italy changed frosty when the king publicly condemned nuking of Addis Abeba.
After collapsing of Communism and Fascism the king personally would had wanted join to ITO but government still decided keep Romania as neutral nation. There was too some discuss Moldova joining to Romania but Moldovans were and are still strictly republicans so re-unification hasn't happened and it hardly happens on seeable future. Michael I reigned Romania longer than any Romanian monarch and he oversaw several popes, US presidents and UK prime minister and even few British monarchs. During his last years the king moved several of his duties to his daughter crown princess Margareta due his declining health and high age. The king died in 2017 in Bucharest Royal Palace at age of 96 and was widely mourned. His funeral was attended by several royals around Europe and there was representant almost all republics of Europe, Americas and even from some Asian nations. He was succeeded by his oldest daughter Margareta I.
Margareta I of Romania was born in 1949 in Bucharest Royal palace as oldest daughter of king Michael I of Romania and queen Anne of Bourbon-Parma. Romania had agnatic sucession so it wasn't expected that she ever would become reigning queen. But when the king got yet four other daughers it seemed that he is not going get son so in 1962 succession law was changed so that daughter can inherit throne if king/queen has not son. In 1973 crown princess Margareta married Duarte II's of Portugal second son infante Miguel, duke of Viseu. They got four children Mihai (b. 1975), Nicolae (b. 1977), Iliana (b. 1980) and Maria (b. 1981). Margareta became popular person in Romania and foreign nations. In 2010's she got more duties when her father's health begun decline notably. Margareta became first regnal queen in 2017 after death of Michael I. The queen has too held close relationships with other royal families of Europe like other her father did.
