Short biography

Prince Gheorghe Grigore Cantacuzino (born September 22nd, 1832, Bucharest, D. March 23rd, 1913, Bucharest) was a romanian politician, twice elected mayor of Bucharest (May 1869 - January 1870 and March 1913 - December 1913) and named Prime Minister of Romania between 1899 - 1900 and during 1904-1907. He was born from the old noble Cantacuzino family, being a descendant of Romanian rulers or Cantacuzino emperors of the Byzantine.


He studied in Bucharest and Paris, where he took his doctorate in law in 1858. After his return he was appointed Judge of the Court of Ilfov, after he was appointed to the Court of Appeal, from where he resigned on May 4, 1864.


Because of his colossal wealth, he was nicknamed "Nabob". From the money at his disposal, he built three palaces: the Cantacuzino Palace in Bucharest, located on Calea Victoriei, which now houses the National Museum "George Enescu" , Cantacuzino Castle in Busteni, sometimes called "Cantacuzino Palace Busteni", now a museum, and Cantacuzino Palace in Floresti, nicknamed "Little Trianon", now in ruins.
