 History

Dacia and Rome (168 BC - 275 AD) Dacia-icon SPQR-icon

In 168 BC King Rubobostes unites many Dacian tribes and forms Dacia-icon Kingdom of Daciaball.

His successor, King Oroles, opposes a Germania-icon Germanicballs invasion in Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball. Due to an initial failure King Oroles punishes his soldiers to sleep at their wives' feet and do the household chores. Subsequently, the now "highly motivated" Dacian army defeats Germania-icon Germanicballs and King Oroles lifts all sanctions.

The next king, King Burebista, unites all Dacian tribes under his command and destroyes all vineyards to make his Soldiers more disciplined. He expands Dacia-icon Daciaball's clay defeating Gaul-icon Celtsball and comes in conflict with SPQR-icon SPQRball.

His clay includes areas over Tisa, Danube and Dniester rivers, the Carpathian Mountains are in the middle of Dacia-icon Daciaball corresponding to present day countryballs of Romania-icon Romaniaball with Moldova-icon Moldovaball and parts of Ukraine-icon Ukraineball, Serbia-icon Serbiaball, Bulgaria-icon Bulgariaball, Slovakia-icon Slovakiaball, Hungary-icon Hungaryball and Poland-icon Polandball.

After King Burebista's death in 44 BC the kingdom is divided in 4 then 5 smaller kingdoms ruled by religious elites and Dacia-icon Daciaball's activity is reduced to a defensive state. Despite this division, the Dacian tribes fight together whenever they are threatened by a foreign attack.

In 85 AD King Decebalus reunifies all of Dacia-icon Daciaball. He then fights 3 wars with SPQR-icon SPQRball under 2 Emperors. In 89 AD he defeats a SPQR-icon SPQRball invasion in the reign of Emperor Domitian at the First Battle of Tapae, forcing SPQR-icon SPQRball to pay tribute to Dacia-icon Daciaball in exchange for peace, securing a period of independence during which Decebalus consolidates his rule.

When Emperor Trajan comes to power in SPQR-icon SPQRball, he invades Dacia-icon Daciaball to end the shameful tribute and to rob Dacia-icon Daciaball as it was a rich kingdom. This time King Decebalus is defeated at the Second Battle of Tapae in 102 AD but remains in power as a client king.

Wanting to regain independence, King Decebalus rebels against SPQR-icon SPQRball in 105 but is defeated in 106 and Dacia-icon Daciaball is absorbed in SPQR-icon SPQRball. King Decebalus committs suicide to avoid capture.

“We have conquered even these Dacians, the most warlike of all people that have ever existed.” - Emperor Trajan

The capital of Dacia-icon Daciaball, Sarmizegetusa, located in modern Romania-icon Romaniaball, Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball, is destroyed by SPQR-icon SPQRball but its name is added to that of the new city (Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa) built to serve as the capital of the Roman province of Dacia-icon Daciaball.

After the conquest SPQR-icon SPQRball gives clay to veterans who were serving there at the time of the discharge and sends colonists from all over the empire to romanize and integrate the region into the SPQR-icon Roman Empire, many Dacia-icon Daciaball men dying in the war also helped. There are numerous Dacia-icon Daciaball revolts against SPQR-icon SPQRball but by the beginning of the 3rd century they all stop.

There are numerous questions and mysteries about Dacia-icon Daciaball and SPQR-icon SPQRball, for example Dacian Warriors are overly represented in SPQR-icon SPQRball, more than any other defeated nation, why is that if the conflict was such a small one ? there are monuments where Dacian Warriors stand victorius, proud with their heads heads looking forward and weapons in hand, why would SPQR-icon SPQRball glorify a defeated nation ? Emperor Trajan didn't need a translator when he invaded Dacia-icon Daciaball, why is that ?

In spite of that, numerous sources has stated that Romania-icon Romaniaball's culture in the middle ages resembles a combination of Dacia-icon Daciaball and SPQR-icon SPQRball, and that they are the SPQR-icon SPQRball who elected to remain in Dacia-icon Daciaball when the migrator invasions arrived, they were called Vlachs by Germania-icon Germanicballs which meant "Roman" and the name was later adopted by other nations as well, yet they called themselves "Romani" and acknowledged that they speak the latin language, although it was a sightly modified version, yet who were Dacia-icon Daciaball compared to SPQR-icon SPQRball and how was Romania-icon Romaniaball born remains a mystery.

Migration Period (275 - 1310) Gepids-icon Hun-icon Avar-icon Principality of Hungary-icon

Unable to defend Dacia-icon Daciaball from migrators, SPQR-icon SPQRball administration leaves Dacia-icon Daciaball between 271 A.D. and 275 A.D, which is afterwards invaded by the Goths some sources say that the Goths and the Dacians are the same people and it was in fact a rebellion.

The people who would become the Romanians, Daco-Romans, consider themselves only Romans and are mostly farmers and shepherds who are allowed to live in peace and rule themselves as long as they pay tribute (half of everything they produce) as the migrator tribes have no interest in agriculture themselves. Except for the Slavs who had a significant influence in the Daco-Roman culture, they learned the chilliric alphabet while in the First and Second Bulgarian Empire and to this day about 20% of Romanian words have Slavic origin.

In 376, Goths are conquered by Hun-icon Hunball. In 454, Hun-icon Hunball's empire disintegrates. In 469, Gepids-icon Gepidsball takes the clay. In 567, Avar-icon Avarballs take Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball. In 681, when First Bulgarian Empire-icon First Bulgarian Empireball is established Romania-icon Romaniaball becomes part of it except for Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball who was under Avar-icon Avarballs.

In 804, First Bulgarian Empire-icon First Bulgarian Empireball conquers Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball and from the Duchy of Gelouball, Duchy of Gladball and Duchy of Menumorutball. In the 10th century, Principality of Hungary-icon Magyarsball start the hungarian conquest of Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball and gradually conquer Duchy of Gelouball, Duchy of Gladball and Duchy of Menumorutball. In the 12th century all of Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball was under Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball.

In 1018, Pechenegsball defeats First Bulgarian Empire-icon First Bulgarian Empireball and takes their clay from Romania-icon Romaniaball. In 1091, Cumaniaball defeats Pechenegsball and takes their clay from Romania-icon Romaniaball.

In 1185, Vlachs in Wallachia (South Romania) with the Bulgarians rise up against Byzantine-icon Byzantineball and create Second Bulgarian Empire-icon Second Bulgarian Empireball. In 1204, the pope elevated the head of the Bulgarian church to the rank of "primas of all Bulgaria and Vlachia". However Cumaniaball defeats Second Bulgarian Empire-icon Second Bulgarian Empireball in the north and retakes control of Wallachia.

In 1241, during the Mongol Empire-icon Mongol Empireball invasion of Europe Cumaniaball domination of Wallachia ends, there is no evidence of direct Mongol Empire-icon Mongol Empireball rule in Wallachia but remains possible. Parts of Wallachia are probably briefly disputed between Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball and Second Bulgarian Empire-icon Second Bulgarian Empireball, eventually Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball takes all of Wallachia in 1242 while Moldavia (East Romania) is part of Mongol Empire-icon Mongol Empireball and Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball (West Romania) is also under Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball.

The first reference of Romanian rulers dates to 1246 in the form of a charter given by King Bela IV of Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball that mentions Romanian voivodes Seneslau, Litovoi, Ioan and Farcaș; who are his vassals. The charter only states their existance suggesting that the voivodships were formed before 1246.

In 1277, Litovoi revolts against Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball when he refuses to pay tribute. In 1278 Litovoi is killed in battle and his brother Bărbat who was taken prisoner by Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball during the rebellion is forced to pay his ransom and to recognize Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball's rule. After Bărbat accepts Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball suzerainty he takes his brother's throne.

Hungaryball's Rumors (Present)

Romania-icon Romaniaball's ancestry:

Hungary-icon Hungaryball likes to spread rumors that Romania-icon Romaniaball isn't of SPQR-icon SPQRball and Dacia-icon Daciaball descent but of Cumaniaball which is a turkic tribe. This is to get a claim on Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball based on the "we were first" argument. He even teaches his kids in history class that Romania-icon Romaniaball had nothing to do with SPQR-icon SPQRball, desperate. Then how come Romania-icon Romaniaball speaks a latin-based language? those poor cuman kids being forced to learn latin in schools because reasons.

And how come that it was Hungary-icon Hungaryball's most famous chronicler, Simon of Keza, who stated in 1282 that "Romania-icon Romaniaball used to be the SPQR-icon SPQRball who elected to remain in Panonia when Hunball arrived". Not to mention that Byzantine-icon Byzantineball and Italy-icon Italyball chroniclers and pretty much everyone else also said the same thing.

While nobody said anything about Romania-icon Romaniaball and Cumaniaball being related, not even Hungary-icon Hungaryball, until Trianon 1920. Italy-icon Italyball's scholar Poggio Bracciolin stated that "Romania-icon Romaniaball's ancestors had been SPQR-icon SPQRball colonists settled by Emperor Trajan" and Aeneas Sylvius Piccolomini stated that "Romania-icon Romaniaballs are an italian race". This was 15th century, long before 19th century's nationalist movements.

Nor is there cultural connection between Romania-icon Romaniaball and Cumaniaball, while there were and still are many connections between Romania-icon Romaniaball, SPQR-icon SPQRball and Dacia-icon Daciaball besides language, such as the popular costumes of Romania-icon Romaniaball in middle ages that were indentical with that of Dacia-icon Daciaball and celebrations such as "mărţişor" which was SPQR-icon SPQRball's praise to the god of war Mars then it changed into a praise of the coming of spring as SPQR-icon SPQRball converted to christianity.

Romania-icon Romaniaball's name:

Another lie Hungary-icon Hungaryball likes to spread is that the name Romania-icon Romaniaball was invented at the United Principalities-icon Little Union in 1859 and it didn't exist before that, they were called "Vlachs". This argument is ironic considering that the word "Vlach" comes from old Germanic and means Roman.

Besides that, Romania-icon Romaniaball never called themselves "Vlachs", that's what they were called by other people but they called themselves Romani, Romei, Rumani and Români as the language evolved ("Români" means Romanians in modern Romanian), derivatives of Latin adjective "Romanus" which meant "Citizen of the Roman Empire", and they called Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball "the Romanian Land" ("Țeara Rumânească" in old Romanian, "Țara Românească" in modern Romanian. Țeara/Țara = Latin Terra = Land). The Romanians in Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball called themselves "Moldovans" but acknowledged that they speak Romanian and that they and Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball with Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball are the same people.

Romania-icon Romaniaball's language:

He also likes to say that Romania-icon Romaniaball made a whole new language in the 19th century then forced everyone to learn it, besides how ridiculous and impossible this sounds, it was only the chyliric alphabet changed to latin and some words were taken from France-icon Franceball, but most of the language remained the same. Again it was Hungary-icon Hungaryball's Stephan Szántó who stated that "their language would be understandable by real Italians" long before 19th century, that awkward moment when you try to promote a false history but you can't because you wrote down the truth yourself centuries ago.

And even if you look at actual texts from old Romanian, in the oldest written Romanian text ever found which is Nascu's letter in 1521 (long before the 19th century), you'll find that out of 190 words (excluding substantives), 175 have latin origin, and is mutually intelligible with modern Romanian. Old Romanian: "dau štire domnïetale za lukrul turčilor kum amĭ auzit èu kŭ ĩpŭratul au èšit den sofïę ši aimintrě nue ši sěu dus ĩ sus pre dunŭre"; Modern Romanian: "dau știre dumitale de lucrul turcilor cum am auzit eu că împăratul a iesit din Sofia și aimintrea nu e și s-au dus în sus pe Dunăre". Even if you don't understand Romanian you can't help but notice that it's similar.

It's sad to see that 20th century propaganda still exists in 21st century. Hungary-icon Hungaryball can't get into acceptance over the fact that Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball is Romanian so he makes up history and hides under the rug everything that contradicts him, you have a hard case of deinal my friend.

Medieval Romanian States (1310 - 1848) Wallachia-icon Moldavia-icon Transylvania-icon

Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball are his parents, or him and Moldova-icon Moldovaball as teens in some comics. Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball is his uncle or his son with Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball in some comics.

In 1330, Basarab I revolts against Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball and Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball becomes independent after the Battle of Posada where 10.000 Romanians defeat 30.000 Hungarians.

In 1345, Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball is victorious against Mongol Empire-icon Mongol Empireball in Moldavia (East Romania) with the help of Romanians and takes the clay as his own. In 1347, Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball is founded by Dragoş with support from Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball to better defend Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball against Mongol Empire-icon Mongol Empireball.

In 1359, Bogdan I the Founder (voivode of Maramuresball in 1342 - 1345) takes control of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball and revolts against Dragoş and the Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball securing Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball's independence. Most peasants also become serfs and are ruled by aristocrats called boyars. Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball attacks Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball to retake the clay but fails and eventually recognize Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball's independence.

"Bodgan, ex-voivode of Maramuresball, our infidel!" - King Carol of Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball

In the 14th century Ottoman-icon kebab comes from the south. Both Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball fight Ottoman-icon kebab for most of their history with periods of freedom and suzeranity when they have to pay tribute to Ottoman-icon kebab. And a love - hate relationship with Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball and Kingdom of Poland-icon Kingdom of Polandball who sometimes help them and sometimes invad or raid them. And sometimes they are under Ottoman-icon kebab so they have to fight them.

In 1389, Mircea the Elder of house Basarab attacks Ottoman-icon kebab and takes Dobruja-icon Dobrujaball for Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball. In 1394, Ottoman-icon kebab Sultan Beyazid I crosses the Danube river, leading 40,000 men, an impressive force at the time. Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball's ruler, Mircea the Elder, has only about 10,000 men. The two armies clash at the Battle of Rovine where Mircea the Elder wins and removes Ottoman-icon kebab out of the country. Dobruja-icon Dobrujaball is lost again to Ottoman-icon kebab in 1420, 2 years after Mircea the Elder's death.

"Three things I hated in my life: the fearful soldier, the arrogant fool and the traitor." - Mircea the Elder

Vlad the Impaler rules Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball between 1456 - 1462, he impales Ottoman-icon kebab and eats next to their bodies, in spite of his sadic tendencies he is a just yet cruel ruler loved by the people, he is no vampire but his body was never found and people began telling stories.

"A sentence that doesn't reflect good, that nobody hears about and nobody has anything to learn from, is an useless sentence." - Vlad the Impaler

Stephen the Great rules Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball's between 1457 - 1504 and has a 34-2 win-lose ratio against Ottoman-icon kebab. He is very religious, doesn't like wars and wants to live in peace with other countries but does what he has to do to protect his country. For each victory against Ottoman-icon kebab he builts a new church. One day he asks all European Christian nations to join him in a new crusade against Ottoman-icon kebab, but nobody joins as they are were too busy fighting each other.

"If you already have so much money and power, what are you doing in my country?" - Stephen the Great to Ottoman-icon Ottomanball.

Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball is at this time he was under Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball. He tries to unite in 1601 but his neighbours don't want this. Michael the Brave becomes prince of Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball in 1593, removes Ottoman-icon kebab in 1595, becomes prince of Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball in 1599 and prince of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball in 1600. However he is assassinated in 1601 and the union ends.

The seal of Michael the Brave from 1600 depicts the Black Eagle of Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball, the Aurochs Head of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball, the Seven Hills of Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball and over the hills there were Two Rampant Lions affronts supporting the trunk of a tree, as a symbol of the reunited Dacia-icon Kingdom of Daciaball. While this union is short-lived it becomes the bedrock of the national conscience of Romanians everywhere.

"Romanians! we have one life, and one honor, wake up now, as we've slept enough!" - Michael the Brave

In the 17th century, Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball become vassals of Ottoman-icon kebab. In the 18th century they have puppet rulers under Ottoman-icon kebab control.

In 1683, Ottoman-icon kebab is removed at the Battle of Vienna and Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball takes Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball. Although some of its people are Magyars or Germans most are Romanian peasants. Their harsh treatment leads to a rebellion led by 3 sherfs called: Horea, Cloxa, Crisan. The rebellion fails but in 1785 Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball abolishes serfdom in Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball.

In 1774, Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball anschlusses Bukovina-icon Bukovinaball, a northern region of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball, puppet ruler Grigore Ghica opposes the annexation and is assassinated by Ottoman-icon kebab. In 1806, the Russian-Empire-icon Russo-Turkish Ottoman-icon war starts, after 6 years of battle Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball wins and anschlusses the eastern half of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball, known as Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball. While under Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball she becomes one of the poorest provinces in Europe.

In the 19th century, Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball are still vassals of Ottoman-icon kebab. However Ottoman-icon kebab's power is weakening and in 1821 after a revolt Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball no longer have puppet rulers under Ottoman-icon kebab control. Then Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball start to modernize themselves.

In 1848, Hungary-icon Hungaryball wants freedom and equality from Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball, Transylvanian Romanians initially support Hungary-icon Hungaryball, until they realise that Hungary-icon Hungaryball wants freedom and equality only for Hungarians which is not freedom and equality, and also wants to unite Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball with Hungary-icon Hungaryball.

Then Transylvanian Romanians look to Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball for support, initially they are ignored but when Hungary-icon Hungaryball declares independence Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball opens to the Romanian demands, while bloody conflict is ensued between the Hungarian nobles and their Romanian serfs led by Avram Iancu.

After Hungary-icon Hungaryball's defeat, Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball rejects the demand of creating a province for Romanians (Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball grouped alongside Banat-icon Banatball and Bukovina-icon Bukovinaball) as he doesn't want to replace Hungarian nationalism with potential Romanian separatism. Yet he isn't hostile to the creation of Romanian administrative offices in Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball and grants the Romanians numerous liberties and rights.

"You cannot convince tyrants with philosophical and humanitarian arguments, but with Horea's spear!" - Avram Iancu

Union, Reforms, Freedom, Kingdom (1848 - 1914) United Principalities-icon Kingdom of Romania-icon

In 1848, due to the strong cultural connection and economic proximity, Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball make a customs union. In 1856, the end of the Russian-Empire-icon Crimean-War Ottoman-icon leads to a context favorable for the union. In 1857 ad-hoc meetings are organized where Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball's population express their desire for union, also in 1857 Bucarest-icon Bucharestball becomes the first european city to be illuminated with kerosene.

In 1858, Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball bring their case to a congress of the Great Powers held in Paris-icon Parisball. The Great Powers decide to allow a rather formal union and creates a constitution known as "The Convention from Paris". According to it, they will be known as United Principalities-icon United Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachiaball but will have separate institiutions, except for two of them. The same convention states that the army will keep its old flags, with the addition of a blue ribbon on each.

Birth of modern day Romania

On 5 January 1859, colonel Alexander Ioan Cuza is elected prince of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball. And on 24 January 1859, Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball elects the same man as their prince. Thus the Romanians fulfill the rules of the convention and United Principalities-icon United Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachiaball is born.

"Today, your chosen gives you a single Romania!" - Alexander Ioan Cuza

(Nowdays 24th of January is a national holiday in Romania-icon Romaniaball called The Little Union representing the birth of modern Romania).

After the union Alexander Ioan Cuza carries out reforms including abolishing serfdom and the official institutions start to be unified one by one. In 1862, with help from unionists from both countries Alexander Ioan Cuza unifies the government and the parliament realising a political union and the country's name is changed in United Principalities-icon United Principalities of Romaniaball formally and United Principalities-icon Romaniaball informally or in official speeches.

This is a delicate choice but in 1863 Ottoman-icon kebab finally recognises this double election and union, but only as long as Alexander Ioan Cuza is the prince. However Alexander Ioan Cuza is unpopular with conservatives and in 1866 he is overthrown. This time a prince from a foreign dynasty, prince Carol, replaces him.

Ottoman-icon Kebab wants Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldovaball to be separate again, but due to Alexander Ioan Cuza's reforms and prince Carol's support from France-icon Franceball (protect little brother reasons) and Kingdom of Prussia-icon Kingdom of Prussiaball (Carol was German reasons) Ottoman-icon kebab cannot remove United Principalities-icon Romaniaball. The union is consolidated by adopting a new constitution which changed the country's name again in simply United Principalities-icon Romaniaball, both formally and informally.

In the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867 Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball is born and now Hungary-icon Hungaryball has control over Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball. This is devastating for Trasnylvanian Romanians who start being oppressed, have no rights anymore and go through magyarization, an artifical attempt of cultural conversion.

In 1877, Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball starts a war with Ottoman-icon kebab. United Principalities-icon Romaniaball wants to join but Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball refuses as he did not want United Principalities-icon Romaniaball as a winner at the negociation table, since he wants some of United Principalities-icon Romaniaball's clay as well. Luckly Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball cannot remove Ottoman-icon kebab at Plevenball and asks United Principalities-icon Romaniaball for help.

United Principalities-icon Romaniaball accepts in condition that Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball respects his integrity of clay and counts him as part of the winners if they are to win. Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball accepts and United Principalities-icon Romaniaball takes command of the Russo-Romanian troops then removes Ottoman-icon kebab at Plevenball after a long siege. After the war on 9 May 1877 United Principalities-icon Romaniaball becomes independent, this time for good.

However Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball still takes some of United Principalities-icon Romaniaball's clay in spite of the treaty, but "gives" Dobruja-icon Northern Dobrujaball in return. "Gives" because Dobruja-icon Northern Dobrujaball was part of Ottoman-icon kebab not Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball and as a winner United Principalities-icon Romaniaball already has rights to new clay according to the treaty. This is seen as a violation of the treaty and highly criticized by France-icon Franceball and Kingdom of Prussia-icon Kingdom of Prussiaball but none would risk a war with Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball.

On 14 March 1881, United Principalities-icon Romaniaball is no longer a principality, it becomes Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball under King Carol I. The late 19th century represents a period of freedom and rebirth for Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball, a lot of cultural and economic progress is made. A lot of intellectuals emerge: writers, poets, scientists, artists. Most notably Mihai Eminescu, Constantin Brancusi, Nicolae Iorga and George Enescu.

"I forgive those who wrote and spoke against me, seeking to blame me or throw doubts towards my good intentions, I send them a last salute, full of love" - King Carol I

In the Second Balkan War of 1913 already having territorial disputes with Bulgaria-icon Kingdom of Bulgariaball over who should have all of Dobruja-icon Dobrujaball, he declares war and gets Dobruja-icon Southern Dobrujaball.

World War I and Greater Romania (1914 - 1920) Kingdom of Romania-icon Bessarabia-icon Banat-icon Bukovina-icon Transylvania-icon

When World War I starts he is neutral. In 1916 the Entente persuades him to join them promissing Banat-icon Banatball, Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball and Bukovina-icon Bukovinaball from Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball if they win. Regions that have a Romanian majority as Bukovina-icon Bukovinaball was part of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball while Banat-icon Banatball with Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball used to be Romanian principalities before the Hungarian conquest.

Though a member of a branch of German Empire-icon German Empireball's ruling Hohenzollern imperial family, King Ferdinand of Romania was in charge of Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball's entry into World War I on the side of the Entente, respecting his oath before the Romanian Parliament in 1914: "I will reign as a true Romanian", thus he gained the nickname "the Loyal". As a consequence of this "betrayal" toward his German roots, Kaiser Wilhelm II had Ferdinand's name erased from the Hohenzollern House register.

Initially Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball's attack on Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball is successful, but it is quickly pushed back by the combined forces of Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball, German Empire-icon German Empireball and Bulgaria-icon Kingdom of Bulgariaball to the point where it lost all of Southern Romania including Bucarest-icon Bucharestball and the only standing region is Moldavia-icon Moldovaball.

The Romanians in Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball entered the war from the beginning, with hundreds of thousands being mobilized throughout the war. Although most were loyal to Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball, in time reactionary sentiments emerges, especially after Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball joined the war on the Entente's side.

Many of the previously loyal soldiers decide that it's better to risk their lives through desertion, rather than to shoot their ethnical conationals and fight against their own country. Many novels have been written on this subject, most famous being "The Forest of the Hanged" (the punishment for desertion).

In 1917 when the communist revolution starts, Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball, also region with a Romanian majority as it used to be part of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball, declares independence as Democratic Republic of Moldavia-icon Democratic Republic of Moldaviaball and 3 months later declares union with Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball.

The communist revolution also throws Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball out of the war and now Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball is alone on the eastern front. Attacked by Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball, German Empire-icon German Empireball and Bulgaria-icon Kingdom of Bulgariaball he is pushed back until Foscani where a stalemate is reached and the Armistice of Focsani is signed and later the Treaty of Bucharest is negociated. However neither King Ferdinand or the parliment sign the treaty in hopes that the tide of war will change on the western side.

As Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball, German Empire-icon German Empireball and Bulgaria-icon Kingdom of Bulgariaball leaves his clay as part of the treaty. Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball starts to remobilize his forces. After Kingdom of Greece-icon Kingdom of Greeceball's offensive on Thessalonikiball knocks Bulgaria-icon Kingdom of Bulgariaball out of the war, Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball redeclares war to the Central Powers (10 November), a day before it ends in Western Europe (11 November).

As part of the winners in 1918 at the aftermath of World War I all regions of Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball are given self-determination based on USA-icon USAball's president Wilson's 14 points, being mostly Romanian Bukovina-icon Bukovinaball, Banat-icon Banatball and Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball decide to unite with Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball. Although Banat-icon Banatball votes for union with Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball as well, only 2/3 of is given to Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball while 1/3 is given to Kingdom of Serbia-icon Kingdom of Serbiaball.

While Kingdom of Serbia-icon Kingdom of Serbiaball's claim is not based on any historical right, he argues that there are 250.000 serbians living there and Banat-icon Banatball's geographical position is close to his capital Belgradeball making it vulnerable from a strategic point of view. While Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball claims he has a historical right over Banat-icon Banatball, the Entente promissed him Banat-icon Banatball, most people living there are Romanians and they also voted for a union with him. After some arguments between Kingdom of Serbia-icon Kingdom of Serbiaball and Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball, France-icon Franceball decides to give 1/3 of Banat-icon Banatball to Kingdom of Serbia-icon Kingdom of Serbiaball, nevertheless Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball is happy with the decision as he already got a lot of clay.

How Romania was Born
This event comes to be known as "The Great Union" where the Romanian provinces of Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball, Bukovina-icon Bukovinaball, Banat-icon Banatball and Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball and unites with Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball, all in the same year with the last one being Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball on 1st December thus marking the end of the Great Union. All provinces with a Romanian majority are now under a single state, as a ressult Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball has more than twice the clay he had before World War I and comes to be known as "Greater Romania".

"Long live Greater Romania, strong and united!" - King Ferdinand

(Nowdays 1st of December is the national day of Romania-icon Romaniaball called Great Union Day representing the union of all romanian provinces into a single state too bad it didn't last because Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball happened.)

While Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball gained a lot of clay, Kingdom of Hungary-icon First Hungarian Republicball was to lose a lot of clay and would not stand idle to accept this. Until the peace and thus the official loss of the territories was signed, Kingdom of Hungary-icon First Hungarian Republicball tried to offer cultural and administrative autonomy to the minorities, but they refused, stating that they desire to be separated from him.

At this time the borders with Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball were uncertain and Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball passes up to Tisa, but Georges Clemenceau (prime-minister of France-icon Franceball) is against it. After some discussion France-icon Georges Clemenceau agrees and Kingdom of Hungary-icon First Hungarian Republicball is asked to accept the new borders of Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball. However Kingdom of Hungary-icon First Hungarian Republicball would doesn't accept this ultimatum and his government resigns as an act of protest.

The next day, promising lost clay back the communist party takes the power, turning into Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon Hungarian Soviet Republicball, and attacks Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball to take back Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball. Starting the Hungarian-Romanian War. Initially the attack was successful but the next day Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball counter-attacks on the whole Romanian-Hungarian border, takes back all the lost clay and stops again at Tisa river.

Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon Hungarian Soviet Republicball decides to attack Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball instead, they are winning and France-icon Franceball promises that if Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon Hungarian Soviet Republicball will retreat from Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball they will give them back the clay from Tisa to the current borders. Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon Hungarian Soviet Republicball accepts and retreats from Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball, then France-icon Franceball asks Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball to retreat also to their new borders.

However Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball doesn't trust Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon Hungarian Soviet Republicball and he replies that he would comply only after the Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon Hungarian Soviet Republicball army would demobilize. Upon hearing the Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball demands, Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon Hungarian Soviet Republicball answers that from now on he would rely solely on the might of his army and attacks Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball. Eventually Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball wins, occupies Budapest, removes the communist party, keeps Transylvaniaball, and loots Kingdom of Hungary-icon Second Hungarian Republicball, gg easy.

Under pressures of France-icon Franceball, Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball gave Kingdom of Hungary-icon Second Hungarian Republicball the clay from Tisa river to the current borders back. In 1920 Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball left Kingdom of Hungary-icon Second Hungarian Republicball's clay. After Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball's defeat, the Treaty of Trianon was signed by Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball and the Allied Powers (16 countries) where Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball officially accepted the loss of the lands and recognized Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball as Romanian clay.

As they signed no peace treaty before, Trianon maked the end of World War I between Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball and the Allied Powers. Being officially a defeated state in World War I Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball had no words to say in the Treaty of Trianon, the terms were just imposed on them. Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball claims Trianon is a great injustice to Hungary. Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball claims Trianon is a great justice to all the people oppressed by Hungary. From then on the Treaty of Trianon became a central element in Hungarian nationalism.

Interwar and World War II (1920 - 1945) Nazi-icon Kingdom of Romania-icon Soviet-icon

After Trianon in 1920, Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball with Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball and Panslavic-icon Yugoslaviaball formed the Little Entente with support from France-icon Franceball to ensure that Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball will not attempt to recover lost clay again. The alliance broke in 1938.

Interwar was the best period of his life. All Romanian-speaking people were united under one country. He had the most clay that he ever had, being refered to as "Greater Romania". He was content and satisfied with himself and was looking for cooperation with other nations as well as cultural and industrial development.

He had an active implication in the League of Nations, his capital Bucarest-icon Bucharestball became known as Paris-icon "Little Paris", many monuments were built, his educational system improved, he became a regional power in its own right being the 3rd strongest army in eastern europe after Soviet-icon Sovietball and Turkey-icon Turkeyball. His economy flourished becoming one of the greatest oil exporters (thing that draw Nazi-icon Naziball attention).

After King Ferdinand's death in 1927 a time of political instability with regencies began, although he was still doing well. In 1938 he became world's 4th oil and grain exporter. 

When World War II started he asked Poland-icon Second Polish Republicball if they want help against Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball since they already had an alliance. But Poland-icon Second Polish Republicball refused stating that he would rather have an escape route through Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball if they are defeated. After Poland-icon Second Polish Republicball's defeat his politicans and some army escaped through Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball and in exile in Londonball. Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball's help of Poland-icon Second Polish Republicball angered Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball.

France-icon Franceball and UK-icon UKball promised that Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball won't lose clay. But France-icon Franceball surrendered was defeated by Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball and UK-icon UKball forgot his promise (asshole) and in 1940 after a Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball ultimatum, Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball agreed to give up Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball and Bukovina-icon Northern Bukovinaball.

Shortly after, Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball mediated a compromise between Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball and the Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball where they gave Transylvania-icon Northern Transylvaniaball to Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball. After that, under the Treaty of Craiova, Dobruja-icon Southern Dobrujaball (which Bulgaria-icon Bulgariaball lost during the Second Balkan War in 1913), was ceded to Bulgaria-icon Bulgariaball under pressure from Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball. Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball was surprised and felt particullary betrayed by Italian-Empire-icon Fascist Italyball who supported Transylvania-icon Northern Transylvaniaball's annexation.

Two thirds of Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball were combined with a small part of the Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball named Moldavian ASSRball and became Moldavian SSRball. The rest (Bukovina-icon Northern Bukovinaball, northern half of the Hotin county and Budjakball) was apportioned to Ukraine-icon Ukrainian SSRball.

Right after the loss of Transylvania-icon Northern Transylvaniaball, Ion Antonescu united to form a "National Legionary State" government, which forced the abdication of King Carol II in favor of his 19-year-old son Michael. Carol and his mistress Magda Lupescu went into exile, and Romania-icon Romaniaball, despite the unfavorable outcome of recent territorial disputes, leaned strongly toward the Axis.

As part of the deal, the Iron Guard became the sole legal party in Romania-icon Romaniaball. Antonescu became the Iron Guard's honorary leader, while Sima became deputy premier. In power, the Iron Guard stiffened the already harsh anti-Semitic legislation, enacted legislation directed against minority businessmen, tempered at times by the willingness of officials to take bribes, and wreaked vengeance upon its enemies.

On 8 October Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball troops began crossing into Romania-icon Romaniaball. They soon numbered over 500,000. On 23 November Romania-icon Romaniaball joined the Axis powers. The cohabitation between the Iron Guard and Antonescu was never an easy one.

On 20 January 1941, the Iron Guard attempted a coup, combined with a pogrom against the Jews of Bucharest. Within four days, Antonescu had successfully suppressed the coup. The Iron Guard was forced out of the government. Sima and other legionnaires took refuge in Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball; others were imprisoned. Antonescu abolished the National Legionary State, in its stead declaring Romania a "National and Social State."

"History never forgets the guilty, and all of us are guilty: some because we were quiet; others, because we made mistakes; all of us, because we endured." - Ion Antonescu

On 22 June 1941, Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball launched Operation Barbarossa, attacking the Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball on a wide front. Romania-icon Romaniaball joined the offensive crossing the river Prut. After recovering Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball and Bukovina-icon Northern Bukovinaball (Operation München), Romania-icon Romaniaball fought side by side with Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball onward to Odessa, Sevastopol, Stalingrad and the Caucasus.

The total number of troops involved on the Eastern Front with the Romanian Third and Fourth Army was second only to that of Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball. The Romanian Army had a total of 686,258 men under arms in the summer of 1941 and a total of 1,224,691 men in the summer of 1944. The number of Romanian troops sent to fight Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball exceeded that of all of Germany's other allies combined.

In February 1943, with the decisive Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball counter-offensive at Stalingrad, it was growing clear that the tide of the war turned against the Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball. By 1944, Romania-icon Romaniaball economy was in tatters because of the expenses of the war, and destructive Allied air bombing throughout Romania-icon Romaniaball, including the capital, Bucharestball.

In addition, most of the products sent to Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball were provided without monetary compensation. As a result of these "uncompensated exports", inflation in Romania-icon Romaniaball skyrocketed, causing widespread discontent among the Romanian population, even among groups and individuals who had once enthusiastically supported Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball and the war.

On 23 August 1944, King Michael of Romania led a coup against Axis with support from opposition politicians and most of the army, successfully deposing the Antonescu dictatorship. The King then offered a non-confrontational retreat to Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball ambassador Manfred von Killinger. But the Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball considered the coup "reversible" and attempted to turn the situation around by military force. The Romanian First, Second (forming), and what little was left of the Third and the Fourth Armies (one corps) were under orders from the King to defend Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball against any Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball attacks.

King Michael offered to put the Romanian Army, which at that point had nearly 1,000,000 men, on the side of the Allies. Surprisingly, with Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball occupying parts of Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball, Stalin immediately recognized the king and the restoration of the conservative Romanian monarchy.

"I do not see Romania as a legacy from my parents, but as a country lended from our children." - King Michael

In a radio broadcast to the Romanian nation and army on the night of 23 August King Michael issued a cease-fire, proclaimed Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball's loyalty to the Allies, announced the acceptance of an armistice (to be signed on September 12) offered by UK-icon UKball, USA-icon USAball, and Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball, and declared war on Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball. The coup accelerated Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball advance into Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball, but did not avert a rapid occupation and Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball captured about 130,000 Romanian soldiers, who were transported to Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball clay where many died in prison camps.

The armistice was signed on 12 September 1944, on terms virtually dictated by Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball. Under the terms of the armistice, Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball announced its unconditional surrender to Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball and was placed under occupation of the Allies with Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball as their representative, in control of media, communication, post, and civil administration behind the front.

It has been suggested that the coup may have shortened World War II by up to six months, thus saving hundreds of thousands of lives. During the Moscow Conference in October 1944 Winston Churchill of UK-icon UKball proposed an agreement to Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball leader Joseph Stalin on how to split up Eastern Europe into spheres of influence after the war. UK-icon Assholeball offered Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball a 90% share of influence in Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball.

As he declared war on Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball on the night of 23 August 1944, border clashes between Kingdom of Hungary-icon Hungaryball and Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball troops erupted almost immediately. On 24 August Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball troops attempted to seize Bucharestball and suppress Michael's coup, but were repelled by the city's defenses, which received some support from USA-icon USAball Air Force (good guy USAball, not like his asshole dad who forgot his promise and then sold us).

Other Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball units in the country suffered severe losses: remnants of the Sixth Army retreating west of the Prut River were cut off and destroyed by Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball, which was now advancing at an even greater speed, while Romanian units attacked German garrisons at the Ploiești oilfields, forcing them to retreat to Kingdom of Hungary-icon Hungaryball. Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball captured over 50,000 Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball prisoners around this time, who were later surrendered to Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball.

In early September, Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball and Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball entered Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball and captured the towns of Brașov and Sibiu while advancing toward the Mureș River. Their main objective was Clujball, a city regarded as the historical capital of Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball.

However, the Second Hungarian Army was present in the region, and together with the Eighth German Army engaged the Allied forces on 5 September in what was to become the Battle of Turda, which lasted until 8 October and resulted in heavy casualties for both sides.

Also around this time, Kingdom of Hungary-icon Hungaryball carried out his last independent offensive action of the war, penetrating Arad County in western Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball. Despite initial success, a number of Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball cadet battalions managed to stop the Kingdom of Hungary-icon Hungaryball advance at the Battle of Păuliș, and soon a combined Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball - Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball counter-attack overwhelmed Kingdom of Hungary-icon Hungaryball, who gave ground and evacuated Arad itself on 21 September.

Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball ended the war fighting against Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball alongside Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball in Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball, Kingdom of Hungary-icon Hungaryball, Panslavic-icon Yugoslaviaball, Austria-icon Austriaball and Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball, from August 1944 until the end of the war in Europe. In May 1945, the First and Fourth armies took part in the Prague Offensive. The Romanian Army incurred heavy casualties fighting Nazi Germany. Of some 538,000 Romanian soldiers who fought against the Axis in 1944 - 45, some 167,000 were killed, wounded or went missing.

After the war, under the 1947 Treaty of Paris, the Allies did not acknowledge Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball as a co-belligerent nation but instead applied the term "ally of Hitlerite Germany" to all recipients of the treaty's stipulations. Like Finland-icon Finlandball, Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball had to pay $300 million to the Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball as war reparations.

However, the treaty recognized that Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball switched sides on 24 August 1944, and therefore "acted in the interests of all the United Nations". As a reward, Transylvania-icon Northern Transylvaniaball was recognized as an integral part of Kingdom of Romania-icon Romaniaball, but the border with Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball was fixed at its state on January 1941, restoring Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball and Bukovina-icon Northern Bukovinaball to Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball and leaving Southern Dobrujaball to Bulgaria-icon Bulgariaball. To this day the loss of Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball and Bukovina-icon Northern Bukovinaball is seen as stealing and a great injustce by Romania and became a central element in Romanian nationalism. It is one of the reasons why RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball was still reluctant towards Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball dispite both being in Communism-icon Warsaw Pact.

Communism (1945 - 1989) RS Romania-icon Communism-icon Czech-icon North Korea-icon

In Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball, Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball occupation following World War II facilitated the rise of the Communist Party as the main political force, although the Communist Party was small and unpopular they won the votes. In 1947 they initiated a coup where King Michael was forced to abdicate and a single-party of people's republic was established becoming last countryball from the Eastern Bloc to become communist.

SR ROMANIA WITH HAT
Between 1948 and 1950, he hunted down and arrested all the democrats and legionaries from his clay.

In 1965, Nicolae Ceausescu became the leader of RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball. Gradually RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball became more powerful and independent than other puppet state of Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball.

In 1968, he and Albania-icon Albaniaball didn't want to attack Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball. Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball wanted to annex him but USA-icon USAball had his support.

"The invasion of Czechoslovakiaball is a great error that will make nothing more than to disturb the peace in Europe and to stop the spread of socialism in the world." - Nicolae Ceausecu

RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball became good friends with North Korea-icon North Koreaball and China-icon Chinaball and started making trading with the west. Also he made RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball a great trading power and a great industrial power and the GDP growth of RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball was 10% every year, but unfortunately this golden age was going to last just until 1977 when a great earthquake destroyed a great part of Bucarest-icon Bucharestball.

After taking some money for rebuilding Bucarest-icon Bucharestball, RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball borrowed 11 billion dollars from UN-icon UNball because he wanted to build the House of the People (Now the seat of the Parliament of Romania and the second-largest administrative building in the world).

In that moment all the money RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball had were already invested, and because Ceausescu wanted to pay those money back to UN-icon UNball back as quikly as possible and he decided to take the money he needed from any possible source. Famine had starded, every one had problems with electricity and hot water was nearly imposible to exist in any house.

CR rebel
After falling of Berlin Wall and Fall of Warsaw Pact, RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball was the only communist country in Warsaw Pact (exept for Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball). On 16 december 1989, Lasló Trókes said bad things about the regime and he needed to be exiled, but people revolted simmilar to the French Revolution.

On 16 December 1989 a popular revolution starts in Timișoaraball. On 20 December 1989 Ceausescu returns from Iran-icon Iranball to deal with the revolt and labels the revolutionaries in Timișoaraball as enemies of socialism.

On 21 December 1989 he gathers a lot of people in Bucarest-icon Bucharestball to boost the population's support for socialism. But the reaction is the opposite, the people start shouting "We are the people, down with the dictator!", "Death to the murderer!", etc. Ceausescu sends the army to deal with the revolutionaries and fighting on the streets begin.

22 December 1989, after fighting on the streets, the army sides with the democrats. Ceausescu and his wife were executed and RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball became democratic. RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball had the bloodiest revolution in 1989 with 1104 deaths and many wounded.

"Better loafer than traitor, better hooligan than dictator, better ruffian than activist, better dead than communist" - Verses from the Hooligan's Anthem.

Contemporary Period (1989 - Present) Romania-icon NATO-icon EU-icon Moldova-icon

Romania-icon Romaniaball had it's new constitution in 1991 when Moldova-icon Moldovaball became democratic. After two mineriades (revots of miners), in 1996 Romania-icon Romaniaball had a better president and started relations with USA-icon USAball. After 9/11 Romania-icon Romaniaball supported USA-icon USAball in his wars.

What Romania-icon Romaniaball didn't realise in 1989's revolution is that killing Nicolae Ceausescu would not tear down the foundation of the whole corrupt system that was built. As such most post-communism politicians were politicians in RS Romania-icon SR Romaniaball, much of corruption and abuse of power continued. Much of the PRC (Romanian Communist Party) became PSD (Social-Democrat Party) and PDL (Demoract-Liberal Party). In 2004 he entered NATO-icon NATOball and in 2007 entered with Bulgaria-icon Bulgariaball in EU-icon EUball.

In 30 October 2015 the Colectiv Club fire happend (64 deaths, four of five members from the band that sang died too, over 200 wounded, a hope destroyed) many people went on the street and protested peacefully (something new for Romania-icon Romaniaball) against the goverment because if the corruption wasn't dominating the goverment the Colectiv Club incident wasn't going to happen. It had success for a while and Romania-icon Romaniaball became the fastest growing economy of europe.
Bulgaria helps Romania in protest

In February 2017, the new goverment from the same f***** party (Social-Democrat) fuck socialism it is mostly old people who vote them anyway wanted to forgive some of the corrupt politicians that are in jail and liberate them. Over 600.000 people, including president Klaus Iohannis (being a semi-presidential republic the president doesn't have the power to veto everything), protested peacefully against the goverment again and again for a week until the government accepted their demands. The law was abrogated but the same people are in power.

"A modern Romania is an educated Romania, we are what we read, the books guide and form us" - Klaus Iohannis

In June 2017 the Social-Democrats voted in the Parliament (mostly they did) to remove the curent prime-minister (WTF?). Now, Romania has a decent government, but will it become corrupt like the last time?

He also wants to unite with his sister wife Moldova-icon Moldovaball who was stolen and raped by Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball in 1940, most people there are still Romanians and speak romanian, but her politicians are even more corrupt and there is a large Russian and Ukrainian minority ever since the conquest, about 30-20%.

Russia-icon Russiaball helped a coup in Transnistria-icon Transnistriaball in 1991 (part of Moldova-icon Moldovaball) and has troops stationed for "peacekeeping", which makes the union unlikely. The subject about Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball usually hurts him and makes him sad, she is mostly romanian and was the first region that voluntarily broke from Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball and decided to join him in his time of need, dispite him being in a bad situation, mostly defeated by Central Powers in the Great War, where as Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball took her against her will in 1940.

"Go Moldova-icon Moldovaball! Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball is tear from our soul! Go Moldova-icon Moldovaball! Let us ask peacefully for Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball back!" - Verses from Tears Back.

Like all cities he has a dangerous neighborhood called Ferentari (from FER). Many protests recently. He is nicknamed "Little Paris". Good friend with Sofiaball and Belgradeball. Rival of Budapestball. The legend says he was named after a shepherd called Bucur, in love with a young lady called Dâmboviţa (That's the name of the main river that crosses the city).
