The Order of Carol
 
The Order of Carol I is a chivalric order of the Kingdom of Romania instituted on the 10th of May 1909[1] by King Carol I of Romania to celebrate his jubilee of 40 years of reign. Until the fall of the monarchy in 1947, the order was the highest ranking order of the kingdom. Currently it is awarded as a dynastic order by the head of the Romanian Royal Family King Michael I of Romania.[2]

An impressive decoration. I just hope that it may again be rightfully used and issued some day.

Cory 04-24-2011 12:02 PM

The decoration is again in use.

Has HRH Prince Nicolae been awarded the order? Or Elizabeth-Karina? What about Amy of HM other grandchildren?

Cory 05-19-2013 04:43 AM

Michael Kreuger or his sister were not granted with this Order until now.

Cory 05-19-2013 10:29 PM

As far as I know not until now.

A Statement of the King's House announced the mayor of Bucharest was stripped of his decoration given by the Sovereign. It is only a case of a very discussed politician having a decoration from the King.:

Pfff, granting and stripping, granting and stripping, welcome to King Michael's favourite hobby...

The King's advisers should have thought better before suggesting to give the decoration to the mayor and to other politicians.

Duc_et_Pair 09-07-2015 04:28 PM

I agree but as the granting of royal decorations is an affaire particulier in a non-reigning House, I suspect the King himself has been involved. After all he has no ministers who -on the nomination of committees- present a list of honours and take these for their political responsibility, as is the use in "normal" monarchies. Now it looks like a private person grants and takes honours to his personal whim-of-the-day. When someone has earned the honour, the grounds on which that honour rested are not taken away i.m.h.o.

Cory 09-07-2015 04:33 PM

I hardly believe the King takes this decisions alone. I suppose his advisers propose different people. Some politicians that received decorations were quite contested by many of the civil society.

Cory 09-07-2015 08:18 PM

Bucharest mayor placed under preventive arrest, King Michael withdraws his Order of the Crown

maria-olivia 09-08-2015 05:40 AM

I suppose King Michael withdrawed his Grandson also from the Order of th Crown and he had to give his Sash back!

How Stupid to give royal Decorations to Roumanian Republican Politicians !

Cory 09-09-2015 03:51 AM

You should tell this to those that really decide at the Elisabeta Palace.

Duc_et_Pair 09-09-2015 05:25 AM

To be fair towards King Michael: also in other monarchies there is a possibility to withdraw once given honours. The latest famous example is the well-known gentleman Mr Rolf Harris, who is now suspect in a case of alleged child abuse.

Mr Harris was appointed:
Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 1968;
Officer in the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1977;
Commander in the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2006.
These honours were revoked in 2015.

Mr Harris was appointed:
Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 1982;
Officer in the Order of Australia (AO) in 2012.
These appointments were rescinded in 2015.

Cory 09-09-2015 07:32 PM

There must be a serious reflexion BEFORE giving decorations to controversial republican politicians.

Cory 10-23-2015 07:06 AM

Yesterday an event dedicated to medals at Peles Castle.
