The government on Monday restored the citizenship of former King Michael after expelling the visiting ex-monarch last month, an official said. Culture Minister Andre Plesu said the decision "means that King Michael will be able to come to Romania whenever he wants." In a telephone interview, Plesu said Michael had already been contacted in his Swiss exile through Romania's embassy in Bern. "As far as I know, the king has accepted" the offer of citizenship, Plesu said.

A rumored military plot in Romania, a power vacuum in Bulgaria and idealistic hopes for a white-knight rescue of the disintegrating state of Yugoslavia have spun a web of Byzantine intrigue between troubled Balkan peoples and their exiled kings. Proposals for reinstating monarchs deposed by communism--dismissed as fanciful a year ago--have lately solidified into serious movements and given rise to expectations that some of Europe's most controversial dynasties may rule again.

A second attempt in nine months by Romania's former King Michael to visit his native land ended in frustration Wednesday when he was expelled after 12 hours. "It was totally unnecessary," said the 69-year-old former monarch as he arrived here. Asked if his presence worried Romanian authorities, the ex-monarch said: "They don't seem to be very settled. They seem to be frightened about everything."

Hundreds of pro-monarchy demonstrators staged a rally in central Bucharest on Friday and vowed to hold daily protests until exiled former King Michael is allowed to return to Romania. The demonstration was triggered by the interim government's last-minute decision Thursday to bar Michael and his family from traveling to Bucharest to celebrate Easter in what would have been their first visit in 42 years.

Her family jewels are gone and her castle is Communist property, but Romania's Princess Ileana has found peace in a monastery here in rural Pennsylvania. The 79-year-old princess, known as the Rev. Mother Alexandra, is one of 12 nuns who share food, work and prayers in the Romanian Orthodox cloister. She was the founder of the Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration, the first English-speaking Orthodox monastery in the United States.
