2006, the year in which this album is published, will be marked by a series of national events of historic importance connected to the Royal House of Romania:
History has faithfully witnessed the efforts King Mihai made to keep his country free from any foreign interference, as well as the devotion and loyalty he showed towards his people, to the extent of leaving his native land, to avoid with his sacrifice a conflict between Romanians of unforeseeable consequences.
The virtues with which King Mihai is endowed were even more evident during the difficult years his country lived through. In my respect, on the numerous occasions in which we had the opportunity of tightening the bonds of friendship, I have acknowledged once and again the human and political experience the King has accumulated along his fruitful life.
Today, everybody is aware of the warmth and interest with which he contemplates, full of hope, from the horizon of his long experience, the future of his people.
