« L’homme fort du royaume ». La reine Marie et la construction de la grande Roumanie (1913-1922)

Abstract : Half-Russian, half-English, Queen Marie of Romania (1875-1938) is one of the main architects of her country’s entry in 1916 into the war on the side of the Allies. She serves as a nurse and travels the front to galvanize the soldiers. With General H. Berthelot, head of the French military mission, she convinces her husband, King Ferdinand I, to grant universal suffrage and land distribution. At the time of the peace negotiations, she plays an important diplomatic role, alongside Clemenceau, in the creation of Great Romania. Free from false modesty, she uses her image in the service of her country, but also to further her own glory. In 1922, beside her husband, she is solemnly crowned queen in Alba Iulia. Marie’s life and work – and in a general way, the role of the monarchy in the history of Romania – were widely rediscovered after 1989.
