Fact of the Day: King of Romania

The last King of Romania was Michael I. He helped get the Germans out of his country during World War II, but the Soviet-backed communists eventually forced him to abdicate. He eventually settled in Switzerland where he would remain for decades. After the fall of communism, King Michael I eventually was able to visit his home country.

  1. Sure sounds like he had quite the life. Good he got to go back and visit at least.

  2. Could he only visit? I guess he didn't get his thrown back.

  4. It must be hard being a king without a country.

  5. Michael was born in the wrong era.
    A tragic figure caught between two evils.
