A Romanian Reign of King Ferdinand I Commemorative Medal 1914-1927

Bronze, 31 mm x 51 mm inclusive of its crown suspension, crossed bronze swords clasp on its original ribbon, contact marks and surface wear, near very fine. Footnote: Ferdinand I (Ferdinand Viktor Albert Meinrad; August 24, 1865 to July 20, 1927) was King of Romania from October 10, 1914 until his death on July 20, 1927. Ferdinand succeeded his uncle on the latter's death (Carol I died without surviving issue) as King of Romania. He was the 1,174th Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece in Austria in 1909 and the 868th Knight of the Order of the Garter in 1924. Though a member of a cadet branch of Germany's ruling Hohenzollern imperial family, Ferdinand presided over his country's entry into the First World War on the side of the Triple Entente powers against the Central Powers on August 27, 1916. Thus he gained the nickname the Loyal, respecting his oath when sworn in before the Romanian Parliament in 1914: "I will reign as a good Romanian".
