(PHOTOS) Romania’s King Laid To Rest In ‘Air Conditioned’ Coffin


King Florin Cioaba died of a heart attack while on holiday in Turkey last week. His body was carried in an air-conditioned glass covered coffin down a four mile route in Sibiu, Transylvania.

Thousands of Roma turned out for the funeral of their self-styled King as he was laid to rest in his hometown in Transylvania today.

The 58-year-old Romania’s King of the Gypsies, who had taken to wearing a king’s crown as the leader of the minority community, became famous around the globe for arranging a marriage for his 12-year-old daughter.

After watching her storm out of the church to avoid becoming a child bride, ‘King’ Cioaba became an advocate for education for Roma girls and began preaching that girls should not marry before the age of 16.
