Biographical/Historical Note

Ion George Duca was prime minister of Romania from November 14 to December 30, 1933, when he was assassinated for his efforts to suppress the fascist Iron Guard movement.
Born in Bucharest on December 20, 1879, he entered Romania's Chamber of Deputies for the National Liberal Party in 1907 and served in the cabinet from 1914. Appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1922, he was an avid supporter of the Little Entente, an alliance formed between Romania, Yugoslavia, and Czechoslovakia.
In November, 1933, King Carol II of Romania asked Duca to head the government as prime minister in preparation for the December elections. What followed was a time of violence when police jailed thousands of Iron Guard members. Shortly after the release of many of the Iron Guard members from jail, Duca was shot on the platform of the Sinaia train station by Nicolae Constantinescu.
Ion George Duca's extensive political memoirs were edited by his son George while at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University in the 1970s and 1980s.
