Miss Universe Romania is a national Beauty pageant in Romania.

History[edit]

Miss Romania was initially established in the late 1920s, Magda Demetrescu won the first pageant in 1929. She then participated in the former Miss Universe pageant (officially the International Pageant of Pulchritude) in Texas, where she placed sixth.[1] The following year, Mariana Mirica placed third.[2][3] After this Texas international pageant ended in 1932, Dorothee Cristescu participated in "Miss Universe" Brussels in 1935.[3]

Romania's participation in international pageants ceased by 1936,[3] though a Communist-pageant was held in the country in the 1970s.[4]

Romania's participation in the modern Miss Universe pageant began with Miss Romania Daniella Nane who participated in Miss Universe 1991, and where the famous Romanian gymnast Nadia Comăneci served on the international jury.[5][4][1] After 1998, Romania dropped from Miss Universe for 11 years, and returned in 2009. In 2016, the license to celebrate the contest Miss Universe Romania was granted to the agency ExclusivEvent, having as president to Ernest Hadrian Böhm.[5][6]
