27.August.1916.
10:00 AM.

King Ferdinand gathered The Crown Council to decide of Romania will enter in the war against Austro-Hungary or not.
The moment is good enough though :the Franco-British troops were mounting an offensive on the Salonica Front,and the Russian Army was pushing the front in Bucovina.
The entire country is waiting for the answer of the Crown Council.


(for those who might not understand what i'm doing.100 years ago, on this day, Romania entred in war against the central powers.And so my 'sick' mind decided to make a somesort of real-time historic timeline, by writing news that happend exactly 100 years ago.This thing will be active till 11 Nov 2018.Imagine it as somesort of serial.)

Romania shouldn't have entered the war, nor should the Ottomans. But one of the saddest nations in WWI is actually Serbia where 50% of the male population died so that they can liberate some other South Slavs, many of them turn out to be their worst enemies.

The Crown Council decided (actualy king Ferdinand already made the choice, but wanted to see the answer of the Council ) that Romania will enter in the war.Most of the participants were for yes,Alexandru Marghiloman and Titu Maiorescu were for keeping neutrality (Maiorescu being maybe the only romanian from Transilvania that was against the unification with Romania ).
Petre P.Carp being the only one who was against it.He told the king that he chose the wrong side, because ''Never in history a Hohenzollern was ever beat'', to which Ferdinand replies ''Wrong.I'm a Hohenzollern and look, I defeated myself''.

On other news, all the roads that were linking Austro-Hungary and Romania were blocked , 15 km from the border .This bringed bits of suspicion to the Hungarian border guards.

(1.Commander. I could do that, but the ammount of info that will come is big, especialy in this period of the war.
2.Depends.I hope it will stay 2 years long .
3.Well tabby, we needed to enter in a moment in war, the big problem in 1914-1916 was to which side should we enter.The centrals promised Bassarabia, while the Entente promised Transilvania.We had luck to have both regions at the end of the war though )

16:00 PM.

The suspicions of the Hungarian border guards seems to be true.After the roads towards Transilvania were blocked, now the railroad lines towards it were blocked too, and the Romanian troops were approaching the border.
After this action, it reamains one question : what will happen to Austrian trains that are in Romanian territory ?

(1.After 1 month aprox, because of the defeat of Romanian troops at Turtucaia by the Bulgarian army.
2.In 1940, then was taken back in 1941 till 1944, lost again, and then Moldova appeard after 1991.
But we are talking about WW1 period so nah )

Eduard Mavrocordat ,the Romanian ambassador in Viena, handed the declaration of war to the Austro-Hungarian foreign minister, count Burian Istvan.The Austro-Hungarian gouvernment announced right away the High Command situated at Teschen, under the command of Conrad von Hotzendorf .
At the same hour, the Romanian 1st, 2nd and North (4th) Armies crossed the border , capturing all the border points in a short ammount of time.Most of those border points were catched by surprise, as the ones responsable for defending were either sleeping, eating, reading the newspaper or just admiring the sky.Only few skirmishes between the troops, as almost all border guards surrended without fight.
Austrian trains were attacked and captured, and the telephone lines have fallen .

21:30
A torpedo from a romanian ship in Giurgiu have hit a barge full with combustible situated in Ruse.The troops considered that was a humman error at first,but after 30 min they were announced that Romania declared war.

Noon.

King Ferdinand makes the anounce towards the Romanian people :
Romanians!

The war which for the last two years has been encircling our frontiers more and more closely has shaken the ancient foundations of Europe to their depths.

It has brought the day which has been awaited for centuries by the national conscience, by the founders of the Romanian State, by those who united the principalities in the war of independence, by those responsible for the national renaissance.

It is the day of the union of all branches of our nation. Today we are able to complete the task of our forefathers and to establish forever that which Michael the Great was only able to establish for a moment, namely, a Romanian union on both slopes of the Carpathians.

For us the mountains and plains of Bukowina, where Stephen the Great has slept for centuries. In our moral energy and our valour lie the means of giving him back his birthright of a great and free Rumania from the Tisza to the Black Sea, and to prosper in peace in accordance with our customs and our hopes and dreams.

Romanians!

Animated by the holy duty imposed upon us, and determined to bear manfully all the sacrifices inseparable from an arduous war, we will march into battle with the irresistible élan of a people firmly confident in its destiny. The glorious fruits of victory shall be our reward. Forward, with the help of God!

question for you DesertFox; do you think it was a good idea for Romania to join Triple Entente, or would you rather prefer if they had stayed neutral or joined Central Powers instead?
