Bucharest Tribunal ruled that the Romanian courts cannot judge the file in which German citizen Dieter Stanzeleit, who pretends to be the son of King I of Romania, is asking for a paternity test. Yet, the ruling is not final and can be challenged.
Dieter Stanzeleit (photo) took this case to a Bucharest court in 2013, asking for the District 1 court to rule that King Mihai I is his biological father. He has previously instituted proceedings on this matter in Germany and Switzerland.
Stanzeleit claims that he has been adopted by the Stanzeleit family after his biological mother Nerissa Jane Irene Bowes Lyon has been executed by a SS German organization. He also says that his real mother was British and she has been married to King Mihai I and they had a son born in Sinaia on November 28, 1939 who is actually he. The German argues he was baptized Nicolae Vasile in Carmen Sylva town, the current Eforie Sud seaside resort.
Stanzeleit explains that he decided to initiate an investigation on his past in 1994, based on several official papers and on the evidence of several witnesses who confirmed him realities that he only remembered.
King Mihai I denied he had been married before and that Dieter is his son.
