Nicholas Titulescu

Titulescu, Nicholas (tētōlĕˈskō) [key], 1882?–1941, Romanian statesman. A professor of law at Bucharest Univ., he was finance minister (1917, 1920–21) and served as foreign minister from 1927 to 1928 and from 1932 to 1936. Titulescu was one of the chief figures in the League of Nations, serving (1930, 1931) as president of the General Assembly. A champion of the French-sponsored policy of collective security, he was an architect of the Little Entente and later of the Balkan Entente (1934). He was detested by the fascist Iron Guard and by other extreme reactionary elements in his country; his resignation was forced in 1936. Shortly afterward he settled in France, where he died.
