Republic of Romania
Romania (officially the Republic of Romania) is a country in Southeastern Europe. It is bordered by Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary. In the Red Alert Universe, it was a battleground for the Allied/Soviet alliance to destroy Yuri's last base at Transylvania during the Psychic Dominator Disaster. During the events of Red Alert 3: Uprising, the Soviet Underground raided a FutureTech installation there, during Raid on Lost Castle.
History[edit | edit source]
The United Principalities emerged when the territories of Moldavia and Wallachia were united under Prince Alexander Ioan Cuza in 1859. In 1866 Prince Karl of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen was called to the throne as the Ruling Prince of the Romanian Principate and in 1881 he was finally crowned as King Carol I the first monarch of the Kingdom of Romania. Independence from the Ottoman Empire was declared on 9 May 1877, and was internationally recognized the following year. At the end of World War I, Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia united with the Kingdom of Romania.

The Final Battle[edit | edit source]
Yuri's forces are on the verge of defeat. Soviet intelligence and Premier Romanov had found Yuri hiding in his ancestral castle in Transylvania. The Soviet Commander in the operation was contacted by Zofia that an Allied/Soviet base had been mind-controlled on the western and eastern sides of the area. Yuri had a huge force and the last base on Earth, with two Psychic Beacons and he wants to control the northern hemisphere. The Soviet veteran raced up and destroyed the Psychic Beacons to free the Allied/Soviet base on both sides of the map, before he took Yuri's base and destroyed the castle.
Soviet forces had won, but Yuri did not accept defeat, and decided to travel back in time using a Time Machine. However, Zofia overcharged the machine, sending Yuri back to 65 million years ago, and the psychic mad man was killed by a T-Rex.
Recapturing Lost Castle[edit | edit source]
After the War of the Three Powers ended with the defeat of the Soviet Union, a Soviet Commander and his aide, Dasha, had to rescue some scientists in the Romanian area to drive out the Allied occupational forces from their motherland. Unbeknownst to them, they were dealing with a threat far more dangerous than the Allies.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In what appears to be a major oversight, the borders of Romania are outlined in Retaliation even though the game was referring to Ukraine.
