    Default King Michael of Romania

    King Michael, the last King of Romania and the last surviving leader of World War 2, has passed away yesterday.

    With it comes to a close the chapter of royalty in Romania, a very enlightened chapter in the history of Romania where the country made leaps and bounds in terms of progress and became an important European country between the two Wars.

    And as a defining moment, 23rd of August 1944 marked the turning point of the war in Europe, when King Michael turned against the Nazis and helped shorten the war by at least 6 months.

    Thank you so very much, King Michael.
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.


    Been to:

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming in France - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country. A novel set before the war.

    A Painted Shield of Honour - 1313. Templar Knights in France are in grave danger. Can they be saved?

    May he rest in peace.
    Shame that he had to abdicate the way he did but always thought it was good of him after the fall of communism to not push for a return to monarchy in the fragile Romania of the 90s.

    Four stage strategy from Yes, Minister:
    Stage one we say nothing is going to happen.
    Stage two, we say something may be about to happen, but we should do nothing about it.
    Stage three, we say that maybe we should do something about it, but there's nothing we can do.
    Stage four, we say maybe there was something we could have done, but it's too late now.
