CABINET WITH ALLIES
Ruler a Sympathizer With the
Germans, Yet Monarch
Over a Latin People.
London, Oct 10. Telegrams from
Amsterdam and Petrograd announce
the death of King Charles of Rou
mania. Charles L was Roumania's first king.
The story of his career spanning 75
years is that of a German prince elect
ed to govern a Latin people, out of
which experience Roumanians or
those who have followed the fortunes
of that buffer state will recall much
that is stirring If not romantic
Prince Charles was born a Hohon-
zollern .an older branch of the family
than that of Emperor William of Ger
many, but none the less proud of its
blood. He was the son of Prince
Charles Anthony of Hohonaollern-Sig-maringen,
who vountarily resigned the
Hohonzollern regentship in favor of
the Prussian crown and subsequently
became prime minister of Prussia,
It was while Charles was serving, at
the age of 27 years, as an officer of
high rank in the Prussian gnard, that
the Turkish provinces of Wallachia
and Meldavia united to call themselves
Roumania and, casting their eyes about
Europe for a foreign prince to govern
them since no native prince had been
successful took the advice of Napol
eon IH., and invited young Charles to
be their prince.
Marries at Thirty.
At the age of 30, the young prince
paid court to Trincess Elizabeth of
Wied, with whom he fell in love at
first sight when he met her in Co
logne, and the marriage was celebrat
ed on the banks of the Rhine in the
fall of 1869. The queen has since be
come beloved among her people for
her devotion to good works and fam
ous throughout the world as a poet,
with the pseudonym of "Carmen
A boy was born to the couple, but
he died at the age of six and they
had no further children. The renown
of Prince Charles spread, and four
years later, out of a cannon he had
captured at Plevna the Roumanian
people cast him an iron crown. With
the consent of the powers they placed
it on his head in 1SS1. From this
time on King Charles was universally
acknowledged the leader of his adopt
ed people and the kingdom of Rou
mania became a factor in international
politics. She held aloof from the com
mon Balkan war against the Turks,
but was stirred in her own behalf by
Bulgarian greed for territory, and af
ter the wars King Charles pressed his
country's claim for 2,500 miles of ter
ritory as compensation for the neu
trality Roumania had preserved, and
started an invasion of Bulgaria. The
Bulgars soon sued for peace and hand
ed over the coveted strip, extending
about 100 miles inland.
"By ourselves alone" are the words
which ornament the iron crown King
Charles has worn. He was never a
party to international alliances, al
though groups represented in both the
Triple Alliance and the Triple Entente
have been sahi to be courting Rou
Nephew His Successor.
The bill of particulars as to tha
country when Prince Charles entered,
Roumania was discouraging in every
detail. That which fca hands over to
his successor, whom he adopted in th
person of his nephew. Prince Eerdl-:
nand, is one which includes an effi
cient army of nearly half a million

of ail the other Balkan states put to

needs no special guarantees.
The one biot ou the escutcheon re

are some 700.009scattered among the
