i visited my boyfriend's grandmother yesterday. she was around 15 when queen maria died and - since she's quite old - she has a fuzzy memory of events. but she did remember that all the women dressed in violet in her honor and that she was touched by that.

she told me that there was a rumor going around at the time in her circles - it said that carol was fighting with nicolae and tried to shoot him. queen maria interfered and got shot instead - which led to her death. no historical basis whatsoever but i think it speaks volumes of carol and the reputation he had.

she also said that she always thought nicolae was a very nice man and that he should've been king instead of carol.

it was a very interesting conversation - rarely do i get the chance to speak with people who were actually alive when all that happened... :)

Nicholas seem to be a kind of loser. Missy did not seem to favour him above Carol.

i wouldn't call him a loser. he just wasn't meant to be king - and wasn't educated to be one either.

but he was a nicer guy than carol, that's for sure :D

Me neither. I wouldn't call somebody a loser just because somebody else doesn't favour him/her about somebody else. Ops, too many somebodies... Anyway, I don't think you can say he's a loser just because Missy "did not seem to favour him above Carol"...

Well...Nicholas did not seem to be able to make something of his life. He seems to be a clinging figure, and maybe why Irene of Greece dumped him. As a younger son, he was freer that his brother in obligations, but it seems whatever potential he had was never destined for fruitation. Missy was a achiever and maybe that was the reason he did not gained his mother's love. He married morganetically and spent the last years of his life drifting.

Well...Any son is better than Carol. He became a very selfish and mean person to his family.

I have never understood what caused Carol II to turn out as he did.  I have read much about his relationship with his mother but have found very little about his realtinship with his father.  My research indicates that Nando was very close to Elizabeth and Mignon while Marie was more drawn to the boys, Carol and Nicholas.

carol and elisabeth were not raised by marie and nando. they were raised by royal nannies who - according to missy - were not very good. missy might of course have been just jealous of someone stealing her role as a mother, but still we must consider the fact that the two children that were entirely NOT raised by missy, turned out to be the worst of the bunch. that might be more than just a simple coincidence.

and growing up without your parents - when your parents are not psychopaths - has never been good for anyone.
