I was just under the impression that Greece had a monarchy system back in ancient times.

Some city states did but at that time there was no Greece as we know it in the present as there was no Italy at that time. Check wiki on Greece and Italy to understand their history.

A former Coos County sheriff's deputy and his wife, a Romanian princess, were arrested Thursday as federal agents swept through eastern Oregon and southcentral Washington to upend a suspected cockfighting ring.

John Wesley Walker and Irina Walker, the third daughter of Romania's King Michael I, staged at least 10 cockfighting derbies at their ranch near Irrigon between April 1, 2012, and last May 19, government prosecutors allege.

The accused cockfight hosts, with a supporting cast of 16 other suspects in Oregon and at least 10 in Washington, were charged in a conspiracy to violate the federal Animal Welfare Act.

Err  Embarrassed ... yeah, unfortunately the Romanian nobility are not looked on good terms with the rest of the families of Europe. I guess I can equate them to the trailer parks trash part of the family.  sigh

In some Caribbean countries is part of the culture of the people. Like bullfighting is in Spain.
Other nations' people may not agree with it , but it's part of some people's culture.
Having said that, do not do it in a country where it is not permitted nor well seen.

Quote
Thousands have gathered on Saturday for the beatification of a Romanian prince who spent decades traveling around the world helping the sick and the poor and died after being tortured in a Communist prison.

Pope Francis approved the beatification in March of Monsignor Vladimir Ghika who was declared a martyr for his Christian faith. Beatification, which gives Ghika the title "blessed," is the next-to-last stage in the process of the canonization of saints.

Born into a family of Moldovan nobles in Constantinople in 1873, Ghika converted to Catholicism in 1902. He spent his life helping victims of cholera, tuberculosis and earthquakes and was ordained as a priest in Paris in 1923.

He traveled around the world from Bucharest, to Buenos Aires to Tokyo which led Pope Pius XI to call him his "an apostolic vagabond." Despite coming from a wealthy family, he was known for his modest ways, always traveling in the cheapest class and of hearing confessions from people in bars, on the street, and on the subway.

Thousands of Catholics from Romania and abroad attended a two-hour service Saturday in the Romexpo trade center, and Prime Minister Victor Ponta called him "a great European spirit who refused to compromise with totalitarianism."

He is also the brother of Princess Clotilde, Princess Adelaide and Prince Charles-Philippe, Duke of Anjou.

Yesterday the eldest son of the former TSar Simeon II of Bulgaria, Prince Kardam, has died from a lung-infection.

He was in a coma since 2010 after he was involved in a serious accident in 2008. For some time it seemed he would be making a recovery but after making a turn for the worse, he slipped into a permanent coma in 2010.
Yesterday he died in a Madrid hospital, today the funeral will take place.

He is survived by his Spanish-born wife Miriam Ungria and two sons, Boris and Beltran, aged 17 and 15.

Such a tragedy, but final peace for him and his family.  So very sad.

I know...and I am sure that Princess Beatrix was, in spirit, with her distant cousin Simeon II today. She went through the same thing, be it that the coma of Prince Friso didn't last this long.
