King Michael I passed away.

King Michael I of Romania passed away, yesterday, on the 5th of December 2017.

Even if he was a man of sublime elegance and high posture, for his modesty and kindness he will be mostly remembered.

A man which had to deal with terrible circumstances at the end of the 2nd World War, a statesman which had to deal both with Hitler and Stalin, a man who made dramatic decisions to spare the lives of his fellow citizens and Romania from further murder and destruction.

He lived a tumultuous life, where scarcity and hostility even from his own country were odd realities for a royal figure.

Rest in Peace Your Majesty.

Here is my visual tribute to Mihai I al Romaniei.
