I just thought that if a regiment entitled "King of Romania" existed in the Russian army, one entitled "Czar of Russia" or something similarly should have existed in the Romanian army.

I do show a 7th Rosiori Nich II cavalry reg badge listed in my database-I will try to find it this weekend.

It appears that the regiment in question was in fact the 5th Roşiori Regiment.

This is not a Romanian regimental badge, but it is somehow related to Romania.
It belongs to the Russian 18th Infantry Regiment "King of Romania".

(IMG:http://img52.exs.cx/img52/8081/R18InfRus.jpg)

This unit was also called 18th Infantry Regiment "Wologda".

The 18th Russian Infantry Regiment “Vologda”, with the 17th Russian Infantry Regiment “Archangelgorod”, forming the 2nd Brigade of the 5th Division, stormed Turkish Grivitza 1 redoubt on the 3rd assault of Plevna of 30th August / 11th September 1877. During that attack Romanian and Russian troops succeeded to occupy the redoubt.

In order to commemorate this event, and to warm the icy relations exting between Russia and Romania in the end of Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78, in 1898 the Romanian King Carol I was named “Colonel-in-Chief “ of this unit. All officers and men wore Russian uniforms but with Carol’s cipher on the shoulder boards. From 1900 princes Ferdinand and, later, Carol (the future Carol II) were registered in the same unit. In 1906, during the 40th anniversary of King Carol's ascension to the throne, he received an officer sword, from the Russian commander of the 18th Regiment, in order to be carried when King Carol wears the Russian uniform.

There is a well known photo presenting King Carol I, with royal princes Ferdinand and Carol, during the Czar visit in Constanta, in June 1914. All the Romanian Highnesses wore the 18th Infantry Regiment “Vologda” uniform.

This is a photo of Czar Nicholas II visit in Constanta in June 1914. Carol I and prince Ferdinand wear the uniform of the 18th "Vologda" Infantry Regiment. On the shoulder boards are the Carol's I ciphers.

In June 1914, when Czar Nicholas II and his family visited Constanta, King Carol I has organized several ceremonies in his high guest’s honour. Among these was a military parade of the troops garrisoned in Constanta. The 5th Rosiori regiment participated at that parade and impressed the Czar. Carol was agreeably surprised by Nicholas II remarks and decided on the spot to offer the honorary command of this regiment to the Czar.

This was later sanctioned by the Royal Decree No. 2673 of 5th July 1914. The 5th Rosiori Regiment “Emperor Nicholas II of Russia” kept this title and cipher long time after the Russian revolution, until the WW2.

I think this is the right model, as it was described in Guido Rosignoli's book, Army Badges and Insignia of World war 2. Vol.1, Blandford Press, London, 1974.
Carol II was appointed colonel-in-chief of the 57th Polish Infantry Regiment in summer 1937, when he visited Poland with Great Voivode Mihai.
This was a complimentary gesture of Polish authorities as a result of President Pilsudski appointment as honorary commander of the 16th Dorobanti regiment in the 1920s.

Some time ago I have seen on eBay one more badge of the Polish 57th Wielkopolski Infantry Regiment "King Carol II of Romania" with the 'first' model of the eagle.
