Александру Иоан Куза / Alexandru Ioan Cuza, domnitorul Principatelor Române


Recommended Posts

I just got these two CDVs recently, they were made in a Bucharest photo atelier at the end of the XIX century.

I'm not quite sure whether these are mass production photos of certain members of the Royal family that were available for purchase in the atelier or real photos of a noble couple. Any help with the identification is much appreciated!

 

CDV No.1.

What you have is a lithography after a real photo, the originals are pretty rare today, that means you are a lucky man. You are very lucky to have such good quality originals.

The person is Alexandru Ioan Cuza, was Prince of Moldavia, Prince of Wallachia, and later Domnitor (ruler) of the Romanian Principalities.

You can read about him in the following links:
