The Kingdom of Roumania (or 'Romania' after 1969) was the old Romanian state based on a form of parliamentary monarchy between 13 March 1881 and 30 December 1947, specified by the First (in 1866), and respectively, the Second Constitution of Roumania. Thus, the Kingdom of Romania began with the reign of King Carol I of Romania.
