Her Royal Highness Maria Of Romania
Marie of Romania was the last Queen of Romania. HRH Marie undertook a diplomatic tour of the United States and then, in France, she shocked many officials by waving her ministers aside and leading negotiations herself. The Paris Conference resulted in the international recognition of Greater Romania, thus doubling Ferdinand and Marie's kingdom and increasing the population by ten million.
