The very handsome King Michael.
Michael (Romanian: Mihai I Regele Românilor, "Michael King of the Romanians", name pronounced [mihai]; born 25 October 1921) is the last King of Romania. He reigned from 20 July 1927 to 8 June 1930, and again from 6 September 1940 until 30 December 1947 when he was forced, by the Communist Party of Romania (backed up by orders of Joseph Stalin), to abdicate to the Soviet armies of occupation. In addition to being the current claimant to the disestablished throne of Romania, he was also a Prince of Hohenzollern until 10 May 2011, when he renounced this title.
A great-great-grandson of Queen Victoria by both of his parents, and a third cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, he is the last surviving monarch from the Interbellum and one of only two surviving heads of state from World War II, the other being the former King Simeon II of Bulgaria.
