Hello:

To anyone that could answer this question.... Queen Marie was pregnant in 1897, and then went to Coburg to have the baby, does anyone know any more information about it?

My dear Zebic-matakovich,

There is really not a lot of information regarding this birth. Marie was involved in a scandalous extra-marital affair at the time and when she became pregnant, many assumed she was carrying the child of her lover, Zizi Cantacuzene, a lieutenant and member of her household. According to Gelardi in Born to Rule, nothing was ever known about the child born at Coburg. If it lived, then the child could never be brought back to Romania because the public knowledge about the affair would have led many to believe it was not the Crown Prince's child. And if it died at birth, Marie never disclosed that information. Whatever happened was lost to the ages because the principal person involved, Marie, never spoke of it.

During the First World War, how difficult was the communication between Queen Marie and her sisters? Were they able to visit their mother, Duchess Marie (Maria) of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, during those war years?

I am confused... So, Queen Maria, wife of Ferdinand, had an extra marital affair, that may or may not have produced a child?

I've read that Queen Marie was very sympathetic towards the Bahai religion.

She was interested in that religion in the last period of life of her very Catholic husband.

Sent from my GT-S6312 using The Royals Community mobile app

Prince Barbu Stirbeu was all his life very close to the Queen but he could not stay in the country during 1930-1940.

Rumors do not really belong to official history. King Ferdinand did never behave with his six children as if they weren't his own children.

Basically yes, she had an affair with Prince Barbu Ştirbey. It was reported that he wad the actual father of Queen Marie's youngest two children, Princess Ileana and Prince Mircea.
While there isn't any actual evidence that he was Ileana's father, it is instead likely that he was Mircea's father.

Did the king just call them his so that they would still have the same as their mother?

I suppose that - had Ferdinand had doubts about the paternity of his children - he would have recognized them as his own children to avoid scandals. But who knows if he had such doubts.

The fact that one story is the "official" story doesn't necessarily mean that it is true and correct. On the contrary, there are many cases where the rumors are much more correct then the official history.

Far too old to be Michael - he wouldn't be born for another 5 years.

I don't think the boy is a close relative of Ferdinand I's. His sons would have been too old to be the boy, and his grandsons/nephews too young.

It may have been a nephew of Marie's. Her sisters had sons who would have been the boy's age.

Yes the future King Michael would only have been a little over a year old,maybe he's the son of one of Queen Marie's daughters?
