I am surprised that the number is so large! I would assume the number would be smaller, as I would think that more people would trust the king! Are there reasons behind the trust issues? What has the king done to show distrust?

After so many years of campaign against the King 51% trust is very good.

The not very popular politician Basescu said a referendum on Monarchy could be useful in order to close this chapter. During his statements the very contested politician known for his critics toward the Royal Family pretended not to know the Line of Succession to the Throne:

Of course he would! He wants people to think that the royal family does not exist or after HM the family will not sue to their majesties not having sons. Sometimes playing stupid does not get you far! People can see right through it and I really hope that the people can see through him.

The people know the royal family, and love them. He does not need to!

Maybe he just tries to finish the chapter of Monarchy but he won't succeed.

In the other hand the historic role of the Royal House will be recognized in the first article of the revised constitution.

Even the strongest critics of the Royal Family (as the leader who resides at Cotroceni) have to recognize the number of royalists is really increasing:

I recently read somewhere (I believe you may have posted it) about how people are saying that the king should still declare Nicolae his heir rather than his daughter as people feel that the monarchy has a better chance this way?

I read somewhere that when the monarchists were trying to get Michael to name a heir they went first with a male-line, male descendant (in accordance with the old succession laws), then decided that Nicolae would be acceptable as a male descendant, even though it's through a female line. Michael chose to ignore the wishes of the monarchists supporting his restoration and named his daughter as the heir instead, with the expectation that one day Nicolae will be the heir.

If that's true, then Michael's decision can be seen as the monarch going against the wishes of the people. It can also be seen as him putting his personal desires above the laws of the state (or the old ones that dealt with the succession). Finally, it can be argued that it would be better to name an individual who has children, or is capable of having children in the future, as the heir because it enables or ensures the succession of that line. Margareta has no children and is past the age where she would have children.

It could be argued that King Michael was taking a more practical, realistic and long-term view by formally naming Margarita as heiress.

Nicholas Medforth-Mills was created HRH Prince Nicolae on his 25th birthday in 2010. King Michael was then 89 years old. A boy-King may have romantic appeal for some but history has shown the fundamental flaw of a young politically-inexperienced heir having responsibility suddenly thrust upon him or her. Crown Princess Margarita is known, respected and experienced and has an active husband-partner in support. Plenty of time for young Prince Nicolae to create his own family let alone learn the language, understand the culture, establish a network of contacts, and become familiar with the official and unofficial power structures within and outside Romania. His time will come and until then Margarita will continue to personify the royal heritage, dynastic commitment and stability, and sense of service to the Romanian people and State that the Royal Family represents.

I do agree. I think that in choosing his eldest daughter, instead of a male relative, Michael brings the Romanian royal family into the 21st century, while by choosing his child over his grandchild he's attempting to ensure stability - a monarch in their 60s should be a far more secure and stable monarch than one in their 20s/30s.

To me the problem isn't so much in which heir he selected - Margareta is a better heir at this point than Michael - as the reaction of the monarchists, and how much other individuals in the House support Michael's decision, particularly after his death.

I think the decision of Margareta as heir over Nicolao (or someone else) is really really going to be determined as a "good" or "bad" decision once Michael's gone. Right now no one seems to be overly disputing it, but when Michael's gone other people could be make a claim to the throne and the whole thing could become like Russia.

I don't see a problem with having a young monarch. King Michael himself was only in his 20s during most of his second reign, and he did a superb job.

However, Margareta would be a superb Queen. She looks so elegant, and I'd think that having Margareta would attract women's support (maybe). Conversely, does her son even speak much Romanian?

Unless someone can look into the future, there's no answer to that question.
