When war broke out, King Carol of Romania found himself in a terrible position. German by birth (he was elected King of Romania in 1881) and having agreed a secret treaty with the Kaiser some years earlier, his instinct was to align with the Central Powers. His people, however, were culturally and spiritually far closer to Russia and, for the most part, favored joining the Entente or remaining neutral.  While war raged around them, the Romanians remained neutral.
