This chapter discusses the union of the principalities and the independence of the Romanians. This was largely the result of the efforts of the political leaders of Romania, who took advantage of the conflicting ambitions among the great powers. The chapter also looks at the new state of Romania, which slowly integrated the majority of the population and the peasants as reliable contributors to its prosperity and cohesiveness. It was only the agrarian reform and the democratization of the political process that proved to be intractable.

Keywords:   union, principalities, independence, political leaders, new state, Romania, democratization, agrarian reform
