The original name of the image is 'insreg57copy.jpg'. Is this badge a recently made copy? If not and the badge is real, is it known who was the original owner? Was it King Carol II as the colonel-in-chief of the Polish regiment?

Was diplomacy the only reason for this award?

The badge is real but it was restored before it was put on display, that’s it looks so brilliant. I don’t think that it belonged to King Carol but the Museum’s specialist, Professor Cornel Andonie, told me that it could be offered by Polish military authorities, at the end of 1930s together with other artifacts (uniforms, orders and medals, weapons, a colour). They were recently displayed in a temporary exhibition dedicated to the Polish contribution in WW2, opened with the Polish Cultural Institute of Bucharest.

The colour of the 57th Infantry Regiment was awarded with “Michael the Brave” order, 3rd Class, by king Carol II, on 25th of June 1937, for “ the bravery they proved on the bloody fights of Waski, Jarow, Brezyna, Choluj, Swislocz and Tartakovicze and the battle near Warsaw and the pursuit of the enemy until 20th of October 1920, the armistice day,…” (Royal decree nr. 2625 of 22nd of June 1937). In the same day, King Carol II was promoted colonel-in-chief of the regiment.

Given the 'R11C' on the badge I have identified this one as the 11th Călăraşi Regiment (Regimentul 11 Călăraşi). Can anyone confirm this identification? The same question applies to the badge of the 4th Călăraşi Regiment (Regimentul 4 Călăraşi) above.
