August 1, 2016 – Death of Anne of Bourbon-Parma, Queen of Romania, wife of former King Michael of Romania.
Anne was born in Paris, France, the only daughter of Prince René of Bourbon-Parma and Princess Margaret of Denmark. In November 1947, Anne met King Michael I of Romania who was visiting London for the Wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten. In fact, a year previously Queen Mother Elena had invited Anne, her mother, and brothers for a visit to Bucharest, but the plan did not come off. Meanwhile, Michael had glimpsed Anne in a newsreel and requested a photograph from the film footage.
As a Bourbon, Anne was bound by the canon law of the Roman Catholic Church, which required that she receive a dispensation to marry a non-Catholic Christian (Michael is Orthodox). At the time, such a dispensation was normally only given if the non-Roman Catholic partner promised to allow the children of the marriage to be raised as Roman Catholics. Michael refused to make this promise since it would have violated Romania's monarchical constitution, and would be likely to have a detrimental impact upon any possible restoration. The Holy See (which handled the matter directly since Michael was a member of a reigning dynasty) refused to grant the dispensation unless Michael made the required promise.
The wedding ceremony was held on 10 June 1948 in Athens, Greece, in the throne room of the Royal Palace. As no papal dispensation was given for the marriage, when it was celebrated according to the rites of the Eastern Orthodox Church, it was deemed invalid by the Roman Catholic Church, but perfectly legal by every other authority. The couple would eventually take part in a religious ceremony again, on 9 November 1966, at the Roman Catholic Church, thus satisfying Roman Catholic canon law. Anne and King Michael had five daughters. The couple spend most of their lives abroad and in late 1990s were allowed back to Romania.
Anne died on 1 August 2016 in a hospital in Morges, Switzerland, at the age of 92. #anneofbourbonparma #michaeliofromania #romanianroyalty #romanianroyals #romanianmonarchy #royalty #royals #royaleurope #royalconsort

The transfer of ownership gets a little fuzzy here, but it appears the crown was left to Queen Marie of Yugoslavia’s youngest son, Prince Andrej. This is because there was a recent sighting of the crown on Princess Brigitta, the wife of Prince Karl Vladimir of Yugoslavia, who was Prince Andrej’s eldest surviving son.

There has been some talk about how the crown that Princess Brigitta is wearing might not actually be Queen Marie’s original crown. This is because the original crown was recently displayed in a museum in Oplenac. I believe this isn't true because royals can loan crown or tiaras to museums anytime they want and have the exclusive right as owners to borrow it back at will. Also, it’s only been seen on Princess Brigitta and if it were truly still in the royal collection more members of the Yugoslavia family would be wearing it too like Crown Princess Katharine. I’m almost positive it’s entirely in Prince Andrej’s possession. So I’m not a huge fan of solid gold tiaras, the part that draws me to any tiara or crown is the jewels, and although these ones are different…kinda like the cut steel ones, they can be lovely if worn by the right person. This one may have worked for Queen Marie but it doesn’t work for Princess Brigitta. I think it should go back to the museum…what do you think? #antique #atiaraaday #crown #gold #history #jewelry #monarchy #princessbrigitta #queenmarieofromania #queenmarieofyugoslavia #yugoslavianroyals #romanianroyals #tiara #royaljewels #royalty

His children were King Frederick VIII of Denmark, King George I of Greece, Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom and Empress Marie Feodorovna of Russia. His daughter Thyra could have become Queen of Hanover had her husband, Prince Ernest Augustus, not been deprived of the throne of Hanover upon its annexation by Prussia in 1866. His youngest son, Valdemar, was offered the crown of Bulgaria, but had to decline under international pressure.
His grandchildren sat upon the thrones of Denmark, the United Kingdom, Russia, Greece, and Norway. Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, King Harald of Norway, Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, King Albert II of Belgium, Queen Sofia of Spain, former King Michael of Romania and former King Constantine of Greece are among his many descendants.

King Ferdinand I of Romania and his wife, Queen Marie, formerly Princess Marie of Edinburgh, Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. #romanianroyalty #romanianroyals #romanianmonarchy #ferdinandiofromania #royals #royalty #royaleurope #marieofedinburgh #hohenzollern #caroliofromania

Pt. 2...In 1893, Prince Ferdinand of Romania married the Princess Marie of Edinburgh, daughter of Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh and Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrovna of Russia. The marriage produced 3 sons: Carol, Nicholas and Mircea (one of whom, Mircea, died in infancy) and 3 daughters: Elisabeta, Maria (Mignon) and Ileana. The marriage was unhappy and the couple's two youngest children, Ileana and Mircea, are generally acknowledged to have been sired by Marie's long-time lover, Barbu Știrbey.
Ferdinand succeeded his uncle on the latter's death (Carol I died without surviving issue) as King of Romania on 10 October 1914, reigning until his own death on 20 July 1927.
Though a member of a cadet branch of Germany's ruling Hohenzollern imperial family, Ferdinand presided over his country's entry into World War I on the side of the Triple Entente powers against the Central Powers on 27 August 1916. As a consequence of this "betrayal" toward his German roots, Kaiser Wilhelm II had Ferdinand's name erased from the Hohenzollern House register. Ferdinand died from cancer in Sinaia in 1927, and was succeeded by his grandson Crown Prince Michael, under a regency. #romanianroyalty #romanianroyals #romanianmonarchy #ferdinandiofromania #royals #royalty #royaleurope #marieofedinburgh #hohenzollern #caroliofromania

August 24, 1865 – Birth of King Ferdinand I of Romania.
Ferdinand I was the son of Leopold, Prince of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, and Infanta Antónia of Portugal, daughter of Queen Maria II of Portugal and Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
Following the renunciations, first of his father in 1880 and then of his elder brother Prince Wilhelm of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen in 1886, young Ferdinand became the heir-presumptive to the throne of his childless uncle, King Carol I of Romania, who would reign until his death in October 1914. In 1889, the Romanian parliament recognized Ferdinand as a prince of Romania. The Romanian government did not require his conversion to Eastern Orthodoxy from Catholicism, as was the common practice prior to this date, thus allowing him to continue with his born creed, but it was required that his children be raised Orthodox, then the state religion of Romania. For agreeing to this, Ferdinand was excommunicated from the Catholic Church, although this was later lifted.
Ferdinand, a complete stranger in his new home, started to get close to one of Queen Elisabeth's ladies in waiting, Elena Văcărescu. Elisabeth, very close to Elena herself, encouraged the romance, although she was perfectly aware of the fact that a marriage between the two was forbidden by the Romanian constitution (according to the 1866 Constitution of Romania, the heir-presumptive to the throne was not allowed to marry a Romanian). The affair caused a sort of dynastic crisis, in 1891. The result of this was the exile of both Elisabeth (in Neuwied) and Elena (in Paris), as well as a trip by Ferdinand through Europe in search of a suitable bride, whom he eventually found in Queen Victoria's granddaughter, Princess Marie of Edinburgh.

The king is dead, long live the king! Exactly 90 years ago, on the 20th of July 1927, king Michael I succeeded his grandfather, king Ferdinand I, who died the very same day, to the Romanian throne. Only 6 years old at the time, the little prince became a young king as his father, who should have been next in line, renounced his right by birth for...a woman. He eventually returned to Romania three years later, becoming king Carol II, and the regency who helped Michael rule was dissolved. Michael was to become king once more after his father's deposition in 1940, and ruled until December 1947, when he was forced by the communists to abdicate and go into exile.
The two photos show little king Michael on the cover of the famed Time Magazine and king Ferdinand I (photo taken by myself just earlier this day at a museum, after one of his portraits). #historicalstories #kingmichaelofromania #romanianroyals #kingferdinandofromania #royalromania #royals #babyking #king #timemagazine #hostory #monarchy #royalsinart #portrait #lostworld #losttimes #lostsplendour

The Golden Room at Pelisor Castle, Sinaia, Romania. This is the place where Queen Marie of Romania died today in 1938. One can notice the motif of white lilies everywhere, as this was the queen's favourite flower. At present, the room hosts the chest with her heart, which was brought here by the royal family last year, when it was moved from the National Museum of History in Bucharest during a solemn ceremony partly opened to the public. The current Romanian royals use this room as a space of remembering and thinking of their ancestors. Pelisor Castle was used by the crown princely couple, Ferdinand and Marie from 1903, during the reign of King Carol I, while he and his wife, the queen, stayed at the more famous and splendid Peles Castle, just near it.

After refusing a proposal from her cousin, the future King George V, she was chosen as the future wife of Crown Prince Ferdinand of Romania, the heir apparent of King Carol I, in 1892. Marie was Crown Princess between 1893 and 1914, and became immediately popular with the Romanian people.
As queen, she was very popular, both in Romania and abroad.
As queen, she was very popular, both in Romania and abroad. After the death of Ferdinand, Marie, now queen dowager, m refused to be part of the regency council which reigned over the country under the minority of her grandson, King Michael. Her eldest son, Carol, had in 1930, had waived his rights to succession, deposed his son and usurped the throne, becoming King Carol II. He removed Marie from the political scene and strived to crush her popularity. As a result, Marie moved away from Bucharest and spent the rest of her life either in the countryside.
During the summer of 1937, Marie fell ill. Her personal physician determined she had pancreatic cancer, although her official diagnosis was cirrhosis of the liver. Marie died on 18 July 1938, eight minutes after lapsing into a coma. Her two eldest children, Carol and Elisabeth, accompanied by Prince Michael, were at her deathbed.
Marie was the last Queen consort of Romania, as Princess Helen was only ever awarded the title of Queen Mother between 1940 and 1947. She was one of Queen Victoria's five crowned granddaughters and one of three to retain their position as consort after the conclusion of World War I, alongside the Queens of Norway and of Spain. #romanianroyalty #romanianroyals #romanianmonarchy #hohenzollern #marieofedinburgh #carolii #ferdinandiofromania #mariaalexandrovna #alfreddukeofsaxecoburgandgotha #queenvictoria #royals #romanov #royaleurope #royalconsort

April 4, 1953 – Death of King Carol II of Romania.
Carol was the eldest son of Ferdinand I and Marie of Edinburgh. He was the first of the Hohenzollern kings of Romania to be born in the country (both of his predecessors were born and grew up in Germany and only came to Romania as adults). Carol, by contrast, spoke Romanian as his first language and was the first member of the Romanian royal family to be raised in the Orthodox faith.
Possessing a hedonistic personality that contributed to the controversies which marred his reign, his life was marked by numerous scandals. Among them, marriages to Zizi Lambrino and Princess Helen of Greece and Denmark, daughter of King Constantine I of Greece. His continued affairs with Magda Lupescu, obliged him to renounce his succession rights in 1925 and leave the country. Princess Helen eventually divorced him in 1928. King Ferdinand died in 1927 and Carol's five-year-old son ascended the throne as Michael I.
Carol returned to Romania in 1930 and replaced the regency that had been in place. His reign was marked by re-alignment with Nazi Germany, adoption of anti-semitic laws and ultimately evolved into a personal dictatorship beginning with 1938. On 6 September 1940, he was forced by his Prime Minister Ion Antonescu to leave the country and withdraw abroad into exile. He was succeeded by his son Michael. #romanianroyalty #romanianroyals #romanianmonarchy #royals #royalty #royaleurope #carolii #ferdinandi #kingmichael #marieofedinburgh #queenmarieofromania #HohenzollernSigmaringen #helenofgreece
