Carol I (1899-1942) of Muntenia was the only son of Mihai I, and was named for his maternal grandfather Prince Karl Eitel Friedrich Zephyrinus Ludwig of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (1839-1914). Both of his sons in turn wore his crown--Carol II (born 1922) and Constantin I (born 1929).

Five years after the First Great War Mihai I passed away and his son was then crowned as Carol I, a king who came to be a very popular monarch, paving way for Muntenia as a high developed wealthy nation and establishing closer relations between the Romanian nations through his frequent visits to Oltenia and Moldova.
