Worship and Propaganda: King Carol II’s Cult of Personality Outside Romania


Daniel Citiriga

Abstract:

The paper discusses King Carol II’s cult of personality outside Romania. Analyzing carefully the themes and subjects presented in the foreign press, the author comes to the conclusion that articles about the King published in newspapers abroad were very similar to those published in Romanian newspapers. The author points out that certainly, the foreign journalists consulted their Romanian colleagues about subjects concerning the Romanian king. In this connection, a significant example was the King’s visit to London in November 1938, which was preceded by a series of articles written at the Department of Press at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bucharest with the aim to prepare the success of the royal visit and create a very favourable image of the King and his country.
