I have chosen to write about Queen Marie because I think she was one of the most valuable Romanian personalities, a role model for future generations. Marie of Romania was one of the most fascinating women of her period—a queen descended from the highest royalty of Europe.NicolaeIorgasaid about her that: “She believed in kings and their missions, but also in their rights. She was not haughty, nor humble, but she was royal from head to toe, imperious, bright, active, the happy little girl full of life and faith in her race.”
Her education and her principles influenced the cultural and public life of Romania, in spite of her life being the subject of gossips on three continents.During World War I Marie did what most of her female relatives: volunteered as a Red Cross nurse to help the sick and wounded. She poured her heart and soul into this work and did not take very good precautions to ensure her own life. One of the reasons she isstill so fascinating is that she had a rare combination of royal snobbery, common sense and kindness.
Great Britain gave us something priceless, something that we should be proud of: a real queen!
