hmm...well, where to start. Alexandru (my wife's dad) jumped from a Romanian military vessel and swam to shore somewhere along the Gulf of Mexico.He was "taken in" by a senator and to an unknown extent was involved in the gov't/CIA/??He married my mother-in-law (Loius Woods) and has two kids (Karen Myra Filip and Christopher Dan Filip).He lived a NICE life--mansions, parties full of important people, etc.He was supposedly a Mercedes Benz dealer.His car was fouind on the side of the road one day and it was said he died in a car accident.Then why the bullet holes in the car or the special ceremony by the US military at the funeral?
His father Gabriel was supposedly a top official in the Romanian Air Force or some military branch.According to stories I have been told, Alexandru was good friends with the prince.However, I did some research--Alexandru was born in 1948 and Carol II stepped down in 1940.In 1946 King Michael was forced to abdicate.
My wife was "held by the queen and told how beautiful she was" when the queen held her just before fleeing the country.OR SO I AM TOLD.Alexandru died in 1980 and so my wife was there in 1980-1982 or 1983.I can't see the queen fleeing in the 80's.I would think any queen would have fled much earlier.
So, I am not sure which King/queen we are talking about.My wife's mom worked at the US embassy in Romania so it is certianly possible.Unfortunately the mind of my mother-in-law is not what it should be.
I plan to research this though and I will call and ask questions of the two people willing to talk about it--my mother-in-law and Alexandru's siter Myra who lives in Germany.
