The return of the Hohenzollerns?

Admittedly not the wing that ruled Prussia, but rather the Hohenzollern-Sigmaringens, which lucked out and was gifted the crown of Romania back in 1866, trading up from a speck of SE Germany for a fairly sizeable piece of Danubian real estate.

Anyway, Radu Duda, Prince of Hohenzollern-Veringen has declared for the Romanian presidency. One might note that he was born a commoner and prior to marrying well was an art therapist. Father in law, 'King' Michael is 87, and had no male heirs, hence the Regele Românilor giving the chap a title.

The current president, Traian Băsescu, is a social democrat, who has the distinction of winning a referendum on whether his iumpeachment should stand.
