A special invitee was the German Emperor’s Heir sent to Bucharest to congratulate the Romanian sovereign with the occasion of his 70thbirthday. King Carol I was awarded the rank of German Field Marshal and also presented at the ceremony with a silver votive plate (pictured here). Carol gave a speech at the Royal Palace Gala Dinner (see the seating plan in the picture bellow) in which he said: “The Emperor gives me thereby a new proof of his sentiments of kinship and strengthens the bond of love that for long years has existed between us.  My appointment as General Field Marshal makes closer my bond with the Prussian Army which during the 50 years that has existed has become indissoluble”. ©Diana Mandache
