Princess Marie Of Romania, One Of The 20th Century’s Earliest International Icons

Princess Marie Of Romania 1905

You’re looking at one of the most powerful women in the early 20th century, Marie of Romania. The future queen was born into the British royal family, and it was she who convinced her husband Ferdinand to declare war on Germany at the beginning of World War One. As the war came to a close, it was also Marie who took her cause for the international recognition of an enlarged Romania to the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. An international diplomat and socialite, Marie was loved both at home and abroad, and spent the remainder of her life–after her husband had died–in the countryside.
