In May there will be 140 since Prince Carol of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen was crowned,(on 10th May) and I understand it will be some festivities.

King Carol I (1839-1914) and Elisabeth zu Wied (aka Carmen Sylva) (1843-1916)

King Carol I (1839-1914) was born Prince Karl of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, the second son of Karl Anton, Prince (Fürst) of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen and his wife, Princess Josephine of Baden. He was elected Domnitor (Prince) of Romania on 20 April 1866 following the overthrow of Alexander John Cuza by a palace coup.
Following the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in the Russo-Turkish War Prince Carol was proclaimed King of Romania on 26 March 1881.

He married Elisabeth zu Wied (1843-1916), the daughter of Hermann, Prince (Fürst) zu Wied and Princess Marie of Nassau in Neuwied on 15 November 1869. Their only child was a daughter named Maria who died aged three in 1874. As "Carmen Sylva", she wrote poems, plays, novels, short stories, essays, collections of aphorisms etc in German, Romanian, French and English.

Ah! Thanks for the info. Warren, "Born to Rule" did not make clear that she wrote under that name and used it interchangably throughout the book so it was a little unclear about who she was. At one point I thought there was a Queen and a mistress on the side named Carmen Sylva.

Carol I did't have mistresses but Queen Elisabeta was a very peculiar person.

King Carol I (1839-1914) and Elisabeth zu Wied (aka Carmen Sylva) (1843-1916)

Where does Carmen Sylva come from? Did the queen call herself this?

Queen Elizabeth of Romania was closely related to both the Houses of the Nassau dynasty. Elizabeth's mother was Princess Marie von Nassau (1825-1902). In 1890 the House Nassau replaced the House Orange-Nassau as reigning House in Luxembourg after the death of King Willem III of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange-Nassau, Grand Duke of Luxembourg. So Elizabeth herself was half a Nassau via her mother.

Elizabeth's aunt Princess Helena von Nassau (1831-1888) married the Fürst von Waldeck und Pyrmont. Her daughter Emma, herself half a Nassau via her mother, would marry with the said King Willem III of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange-Nassau, Grand Duke of Luxembourg. This means Queen Elizabeth of Romania ("Carmen Sylva") was a full cousin of Queen Emma of the Netherlands.

Besides this, Princess Elizabeth's own brother Wilhelm, would marry Princess Marie of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, even more linking the Romanian Hohenzollerns closer to the Nassau dynasty, while there were already so many Nassau-Hohenzollern links.

Those were the times.... :)

King Carol I was obliged to quell a peasant uprising in 1907 which claimed as many as 10,000 lives.
