The poll was about restoration of Monarchy in Romania.

I understood that from the posts above, but why would it be interesting for the Habsburgs?

I don't suppose they would that's why I was surprised about what Toscany said.

Princess Ileana was married to Anton, who was a Hapsburg. According to history, her children are Hapsburg's. Archduke Dominic is a Hapsburg. He is the benefactor of his mother's ownership of Bran Castle outside of Brasov, Romania.

Everybody knows Archduke Dominic (together with his sisters) owns Bran Castle.This doesn't mean he is very interested in restoration of Monarchy in Romania.

What? I can hardly believe my eyes. His mother and grand mother were loved by the Romanian people. Why do you feel he would not be interested? He is very interested!

Traditionally the Habsburgs are not very loved in Romania.

Toscany, if your European royal family member ever wants a speaking invitation in New York City (for an audience of about 100 people), please let me know.

Thank you. She is leaving for Germany soon. Visiting the Royal Romanian Family, and Archduke Dominic, and Archduchess Alexandra.

Yes, we will make this happen someday. Perhaps this year.

Thank you Cory.

At the moment the votes for restoration have gone up to 3737 votes which is 76.8%. Most probably not truly representative of the Romanian society as a whole but it just shows that the support for the restoration is rising remarkably.

I think if a referendum was actually put to the people and they had the chance to consider seriously rather than just passing thoughts (as is now), we would be pleasantly surprised.

The comments on the poll just show this and many believe that the restoration is about tradition, pride and stability. Crucial factors that are somewhat missing in Romania at the moment.

Currently, the Christian-Democrat National Peasants' Party (a very old monarchist party) is putting together a referendum: Rezolu. Let's hope something comes out of it!

PNTCD is not powerful and doesn't represent more than 1-2% of the intentions of vote.It's more important to see the reactions of PNL (the liberal party) regarding a new Constitution.

Yes, very true Cory. They are don't even have a seat in the parliament. But the fact that a political organisation is trying to push push a referendum is still a good step forward.

Do you know how the PNL stands on the monarchy at the moment? I know there are a few members which sympathise with the monarchy. But are there any feelings for the restoration?

In this moment PNL(the liberals),PSD (the social-democrats) and the PC(the conservatives) have a coalition (USL) and try to defeat the regime of Traian Basescu.It's very difficult to have a discussion about the abolition of the republic before the elections of 2012.Many,very many liberals are in favour of Monarchy, including the president of PNL (Crin Antonescu) and the ex-prime minister (Calin Popescu Tariceanu).

That's great! How do you know about their support? Is it official? Because why haven't they done anything about it then?

Both Crin Antonescu and Calin Popescu Tariceanu have always underlined they were royalists.The problem is not all the liberals are royalists so they must be very cautious.

Have any countries restored monarchies without some major event prompting it? Spain and Cambodia come to mind; Spain had Franco die and Cambodia had a war end. I don't see anything in Romania being such a large-scale trigger for a major change such as monarchical restoration.

If Serbia will restore soon Monarchy there will be a good example for Romania too.

Crin Antonescu has a real chance to be the next President after Basescu. I don't think he will give up this chance for Monarchie. In fact I can bet he won't.
