The popular, democratic decision to unite all Romanian provinces in one state was confirmed at the Paris Peace Conference (1919-1920). Acknowledging Romanians’ rights by virtue of the Wilsonian principle of self-determination, the victorious Allied Powers considered Romanian claims absolutely justified and, through the peace treaties, gave the unification a legal reality. The political support of Britain, France, the United States and Italy, which was based on rigorous field research and a vision about the future of Europe, was echoed by the endorsement of leading intellectuals, journalists and artists in these countries, who spoke enthusiastically in favour of Greater Romania.
