December 7, 2017

According to The New York Times:

King Michael of Romania, who…at 22, he had the audacity to arrest the country’s dictator, a puppet of Hitler, died on Tuesday at his residence in Switzerland. He was 96.

After communism fell, he headed home from his exile in Geneva in December 1990.

But, the country’s rulers…were shocked at his popularity and banished him again…

He was allowed to return for Romania’s celebration of Easter, however, in 1992, and again Romania’s leadership was horrified by the size of the crowds he drew… He was not allowed to return for another visit until 1997.
