Sturdza, Dimitrie Alexandru

▪ prime minister of Romania
born March 10, 1833, Miclăuşeni, Moldavia [now in Romania]
died Oct. 21, 1914, Bucharest, Rom.

      Romanian statesman who four times served as prime minister of Romania and played a prominent role in national affairs from preunification days until just after the peasant uprising of 1907.

      The scion of a great boyar family, Sturdza participated through 1857–58 in the Moldavian organizational commissions that prepared the ground for Romanian unification and, later (1866), served on the secret committee that successfully planned the deposition of Romania's first prince, Alexandru Cuza, and his replacement by Prince Karl of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, thereafter Carol I. In the cabinets of Ion Ghica and Ion Brătianu he held several ministerial posts and, as foreign minister in 1883, signed a secret treaty with Austria-Hungary and Germany. From 1892 he was chairman of the Liberal Party and served as prime minister in 1895–96, 1897–99, 1901–04, and 1907–08. His last ministry was marked by a 1907 peasant uprising, which he suppressed with great cruelty and at the cost of several thousand lives. He was for many years secretary-general of the Romanian Academy and published numerous historical studies and collections of sources.
