The boy in the above video is definitely a young King Michael. Of course he was too young to be at his grand parent's coronation, but this video is from 1929, not 1922. It is footage of celebrations at Alba Iulia to commemorate the unification of Greater Romania in 1918.

I wonder how heavy the crown on the queens head is. She sure is bobbing her head around like crazy!

The Queen's Crown weighs 1.85 kg. I think I would be bobbing all over the place with that on my head, or maybe Queen Marie was trying to get the dangly bits to make some noise, like wind chimes.

Wow! Talk about heavy!

I don't get the dangling pieces either. I wonder if there is some signing ceremony to them, other than being decorative.

If I remember it correctly the crowns worn by the imperial families of the Byzantine empire featured "dangling pieces" and since the Romanians have traditionally stressed their roman heritage maybe it's in reference to that?

The Hungarian Crown of St Stephen also has dangling bits, so I did a bit of searching and discovered they are called pendilia. As JR76 says, they were a feature of the crowns of Byzantine Emperors. I'm sure Queen Marie would have relished the idea of being a modern-day Byzantine Empress.
