I strongly urge you to stop talking about my King like that. You may or may not agree with His actions, but He is clearly not besmirching anything nor behaving in any undignified way. His Majesty's first duty is toward His people, not towards monarchy enthusiasts and theorists on some message board. |
: I get that he wants someone with actual ties
: to Romania to serve as his
: "successor" to his defunct throne.
: But all this nonsense from the past few
: years, with the "re-arranging" of
: the line of succession, and elevation to
: princeliness of his grandson, and the other
: madness he's engaged in is just horrible.
: Radu is a "prince" because the
: Hohenzollerns "made" him one --
: nevermind the fact that they didn't have
: that power. So he's going to sever his ties
: with the same branch that elevated the
: charlatan? Well done, but eliminate the
: charlatan, too.
: Why can't this man show the same dignity is
: his final years as he did during those long
: decades of exile.
: Why is he intent on besmirching his legacy?
: The monarchy is not going to be restored.
: There is no throne for him to concern
: himself with. The legacy of the Hohenzollern
: kings of Romania will travel from his to the
: Hohenzollerns. The legacy of him personally
: will travel to his eldest daughter. Isn't
: that enough for him? It's really going to
: have to be.

: He can cut off personal relations with them

: Hohenzollern... It is a genealogical fact;

: The Hohenzollerns are also his lawful

: BUCHAREST, Romania — Romania's 89-year-old
: deposed king on Tuesday decided to sever his

: Ex King Michael signed a decree ending
