ROMANIA

Moldavia and Wallachia were in 1858 part of the Ottoman Empire. 

The first stamps of Moldavia, the "Bull Heads", were issued on 21 July 1858.

The two principalities were united on 19 August 1858

On 17 January 1859 Moldavia elected Alexandru Cuza for prince 
 Wallachia did the same on 5 February 1859 

Alexandru Cuza was recognised  as a prince of Romania 
on 23 December 1861 but a revolt in Bucharest forced his abdication in 1866. Prince Charles of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen was elected in April of that year. 

A uniform postal tariff for the whole of Romania was introduced on 1 May 1962

Stampless mail was used in May and June 1862.

The first stamps of Romania were issued at 26 June 1862
