In Sweden, the Act of Succession mandates that the King and all "princes or princesses of the Royal House" be Lutheran. Any member of the Royal Family who does not profess the Lutheran faith is automatically excluded from the line of succession to the throne.

In Romania the Queen is Catholic and the King is Ortodox but in the Constitution of 1923 all the Princes of the Royal House were forced to be raised as Orthodox.

30% of the Romanians want the Constitutional Monarchy and 45 % have a good or very good opinion of the Royal Family:

Serbian, Russian and (young) German support for monarchy is also around the 30% isn't it? Strange. But promising for the future, if we can assume that many people opposed to monarchy are from the older generation and still attached to twentieth century notions of socialist revolution and republicanism. Romanian support might increase once Prince Nicolae has learned the language, married and raised a family.

In Russia and Germany the support of the Monarchy is lower than in Romania and Serbia.

It all seems to be around 30% though (excepting Germany, where support is only a third for young Germans). The Romanian article you posted suggests around 30% would vote to restore the monarchy. Between 30% and 40% of Serbians would. Around a third of Russians and a third of young Germans:

In Romania there are the strongest possibilities of restoration of Monarchy.

Cory, if statistics are all saying that support for a restoration is about 30%, then support isn't stronger in Romania than it is in Russia or elsewhere.

I was thinking the same!

In 1990 not even 10% of the population was in favour of Monarchy.

That still doesn't really mean that the strongest possibility for a restoration is in Romania. If Germany, Romania, Russia, and Serbia all show that roughly 30% of the population supports a restoration then based on the statistics they all have the same possibility of a restoration (which isn't much).

Now, if you had the statistics to support it, you could potentially argue that support for a restoration is growing faster in Romania than the other 3 countries in question, or that in them support is decreasing while in Romania it's increasing (assuming you have such statistics; I've not been able to find any older statistics on any of the countries in question). Then and only then could you argue that statistically speaking there's a higher chance of a restoration in Romania. As it stands now, you've not provided us with anything beyond your own support for the Romanians to support this idea.

I suppose you could also try to argue that there is more of a royal presence in Romania, but when it comes to Germany and Russia that simply isn't true - there is a rather strong royal presence in both those countries. I don't know about Serbia.

What can be said with the statistics given is that the Romanian support seems to have gone up about 20% in the last 20 or so years. If that progress continues, then in another 20 years the Romanian monarchy will very potentially have the 51% of the support that they need to actually be viable for a restoration.

The real increase of support for Monarchy in Romania happened in the last three years after HM the Kings speech in the Parliament.
In Germany or Russia you would not see Marches for the Restoration of Monarchy as you see in Romania.

Although the statistics do suggest similar levels of support for restoration in many of these countries, to me restoration in the future does seem most likely in Romania. The Royal Family has a recognisable presence, there are two heirs to choose from - Nicolae for the current salic laws of succession and his aunt if the laws are changed to include women. The former King seems to have a much better reputation than the Crown Prince of Serbia, who was unknown before his 'return' and can't even speak Serbian very well. And in the surveys of Germans and Russians, you get the impression that the wish for a monarchy is vaguer - especially in Russia. Even Russians in favour of monarchy had no clear idea who would take on the role of Tsar.

In the case of the restoration probably the choice will be between HH Prince Karl of Hohenzollern and Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth Mills.

Why isn't Nicolae the salic heir, considering he's the eldest son of the king's second daughter?

Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth Mills would be only the third in the Line of Succession proposed by HM the King in 2007 but it is highly unlikely his aunt or mother will ever become Heads of State in Romania. He is more and more popular and so he could represent the future of the Romanian Monarchy.

Nicholas isn't the Salic heir because under Salic law, men who descend through female lines are only eligible when every male-line is extinguished.

Nicholas descends through a female line, therefore isn't eligible as there are other male lines still in existence (even accounting for equal marriages).

Nicholas would be able to inherit the Throne only if The Salic Law is abolished. There are no other Romanian Princes in line to the Throne respecting the Constitution of 1923. Only HH Prince Karl of Hohenzollern could be the other solution.

From prince Radu's blog
According to an INSCOP poll conducted in May 2014, 44,9% of Romanias population has a good or very good opinion regarding the Royal House. At the same time, 30,2% of respondents spoke in favour of Monarchy as a form of government. ...
The poll regarding Monarchy as a form of government is more interesting. Thus, an important decrease has been recoded (of 11,3% from last year) in the number of undecided persons, regarding the form of government, but also an increase in the number of supporters for both systems Monarchy and republic. Probably, the raising of this issue, in media, schools and in the public debate, with respect to Romania, along with the Constitutional revision project put forward last year, but also in connection with international events from other Royal Houses, has has as an effect a better understanding of the Crowns place and role in a constitutional monarchy, and, respectively, the role of a persident in a republic.

"It is also highly probable that the public has accepted the idea of a constitutional role, without the status of a state Power, for the Crown, through its constitutional recognition. Seen this way, the two results of the poll would be perfectly harmonised, in that Romanians trust the Royal Family and have a very positive regard of it, whishing at the same time a republic, in which the Crown would have a constitutional recognition, an apolitical role, of preserver of Romanias identity and dignity."(The Royal Family in the public perception | Familia Regală a României / Royal Family of Romania). Is this the plan of those who want a compromise with the republicans?Who really needs something like this?
