A new book about the Romanian Royal Family was launched today, 16 March 2009, at the National History Museum of Romania in Bucharest. The album is entitled “Coroana Româna” (The Romanian Crown) and is authored by HRH Princess Margarita and Prince Radu. The book is written in Romanian and presents the five generations of Romanian royals since the foundation of the dynasty.
I was fortunate enough to be invited at this event in my quality as one of the contributors to the book with illustrations from my collection. Please see bellow the videorecording which I made during Princess Margarita’s speech. She emphasized the importance of learning the country’s royal history for the Romanian public, after the long decades when the communist and first post-communist regimes tried to erase that epoch from the collective memory.
