Michael I, Former King of Romania, Dies at 96

BUCHAREST King Michael I of Romania, historic head of state during World War II, died on Tuesday at the age of 96 after a long period of illness, the Royal Family announced.

In a statement, the palace said he had died in a private home in Switzerland.

Michael I ruled Romania from 1927 to 1930 and again from 1940 to 1947, when he was forced to abdicate by Petru Groza, the Prime Minister who transitioned the country into its early days of Communism.

He was one of the last people surviving who had been heads of state during World War II.
