The two branches split in the 12th century into a Swabian and Franconian line. The first became the Houses of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen and Hohenzollern-Hechingen and the latter became margraves of Brandenburg and Kings in Prussia.
The closer link between the Romanian dynasty and the Prussian dynasty is through Helen of Greece and Denmark. The grandmother of the current Romanian princesses and the curatrix of the crown was a daughter of princess Sophie of Prussia a sister of Kaiser Wilhelm II.
What is the relationship between the royal family of Romania and the royal family of Prussia-Imperial Germany? Are they Hohenzollerns?
