Bratianu was a master of that subtle, farsighted, and somewhat disreputable diplomacy which in other times was called "Byzantine." Like his Byzantine forebears, Bratianu was adept in the art of playing nations against each other fr his own benefit. The uncertainty in which he left the Great Powers as to the side Romania would eventually join was a masterpiece of political strategy. Vaccilation as a diplomatic art was brought to its loftiest height of perfection by Romanian rulers during the cneturies of precatious existence wedged between the Turks, Magyars, and Slavs. Bratianu proved a worthy successor to his predecessors. From 1914 to 1916 he executed one of the most notable acts of political tightrope walking. The Germans assumed he would never fight against them, but feared he might not fight for them. The Allies doubted if he would ever fight for them, but hoped he would not fight against them. At the decisive moment he threw in with the Allies and the results were catastrophic, but out of the catastrophe Romania emerged with her territory and population doubled, the sixth largest country in Eurioe, and the dominant state in Southeastern Europe.
