The King Ferdinand I of Romania

Born in Sigmaringen in southwestern Germany, the Roman Catholic Prince Ferdinand of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen was a son of Prince Leopold of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen and princess Antonia of Portugal and Kohary (1845-1913), daughter of Queen Maria II and her consort, Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha of Kohary, himself from that Slovakian-originated family.

Following the renunciations of his father and elder brother Prince Wilhelm of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, young Ferdinand became the heir to the throne of his childless uncle, King Carol I of Romania in November 1888. The Romanian government did not require his conversion to Eastern Orthodoxy from Catholicism, allowing him to continue with his born creed, but it was required that his children be raised Orthodox, then the state religion of Romania.
