 Abstract
At the 1919 Peace Conference in Paris, Romania was facing serious difficulties, mainly regarding the official recognition of its new borders. The Banat matter and the ratification of the Acts of Union from Cernăuţi, Chişinău and Alba-Iulia were complex issues on the agenda. The relationship between the Romanian prime-minister Ion I.C. Brătianu and the French prime-minister Georges Clemenceau was not an easy one and their meetings often ended in violent arguments. The same can be said about the relationship between Brătianu and Woodrow Wilson, the American president, the former accusing the latter of being ?an impostor? and of trying to monopolize the Romanian oil supplies. Therefore, in Paris, Romania needed a well-known representative, both admired and respected in the political and diplomatic milieu of Paris and London. The one chosen to go to Paris to represent and defend Romania's interests was Queen Mary.

 Rezumat
La Conferinţa de Pace din 1919, Romānia se confrunta cu serioase probleme, īn special cu privire la recunoaşterea noilor ei graniţe. Problematica Banatului şi ratificarea Actelor de Unire de la Cernăuţi, Chişinău şi Alba-Iulia reprezentau alte puncte spinoase pe agenda Romāniei. Punctele de vedere ale primului ministru romān, Ion I.C. Brătianu şi ale primului ministru francez, Georges Clemenceau erau antagoniste şi īntālnirile dintre cei doi se terminau adesea īn certuri violente. Nici relaţia dintre Brătianu şi preşedintele american Woodrow Wilson nu era mai bună, primul acuzāndu-l pe al doilea că este un ?impostor? şi că īncearcă să monopolizeze petrolul romānesc, iritānd şi mai mult administraţia americană. Prin urmare, se impunea prezenţa la Paris a unei figuri romāneşti bine cunoscute şi apreciate de lumea politică şi diplomatică occidentală. Cea aleasă spre a fi trimisă īn capitala franceză pentru a prezenta şi apăra interesele Romāniei a fost Regina Maria.
