Actually Alexandru Ioan Cuza had no legitimate descendants, only two illegitimate sons, who died fairly young: Alexandru and Dumitru. Their mother was Elena Catargi.
Her legitimate wife, she was also called Elena, was related to the noble families of Sturdza, Bals and Cantacuzino. But unfortunately she couldn't bear him a child.

Both of them died in their 20s, so I don't think they had any descendants. Anyway I have found no any further info about them.

Prince Serban Dimitrie Sturdza
'Upon his return to Romania in 1999, Prince Serban Dimitrie Sturdza has made a commitment to resort justice not only by claiming back former properties on the family but also restoring the family reputation. Having been educated in France, Prince Sturdza has identified many exceptional business opportunities in Romania, an emerging market with a lot of potential.'

Really interesting links! I'm new here and I would like to ask something that is related to this topic. There are many ancient Romanian noble/boyar families. What is there situation nowadays in modern Romania and Moldova? Especially I am interested in family Dragoş, since my great-grandmother was Dragoş. I'm wondering whether this family are descendants of Prince Dragoş (Voda) or is there necessarily any connection? Thank you!

Yes, I know that. I know also that some of his descendants were called Dragoşeşti and for example Dimitrie Cantemir mentioned this noble family centuries later. I also know that Dragoş is still considered as a noble family by many. Today, the whole concept of a noble family is just a little bit different and it has not necessarily any practical meaning any more. :)

Princess Martha Bibescu (1886-1973) and her relationships with Royals

One of the most famous european writers of the XXth century, Princess Martha Bibescu (born Lahovary) , was a close friend to different european Royal from the Imperial House of Germay, Royal Family of Romania, Imperial House of Russia, Royal House of Spain, royal House of Bulgaria,Royal House of Greece, Royal House of Belgium and Imperial House of Austria.She wrote about them in her diaries and we know interesting details about European Royalty from her books.
Beautiful, intelligent, protector of arts but also involved in european diplomacy, Princess Martha Bibescu remains a symbol of a modern woman.
She was loved or admired by famous men (King Alfonso XIII of Spain, King Ferdinand I of Romania, Kronprinz Wihelm of Germany) and she remained till her end in the exile (she died in 1973) a witness of the political and cultural changes in Europe.
Today her descendants (princes Ghyka Comanesti) try to have back her palace of Mogosoaia.

Recently I've read interesting information about Dimitri Cantemir,who was Prince of Moldavia (1693-1711) .Defeated by the Turks,he found refuge in Russia and was under the protection of Russian tsar ,Peter I the Great.He was a prominent writer and was highly entitled,but it appears that he has no living descendants,as all of children or grand-children remained childless and thus their title and properties disappeared.
Dimitrie Cantemir - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Does anyone know more information?
