Herod was very much royal. That is one of the biggest surprises of my research. He was closely related to both Mark Antony and Augustus. In fact, he was the heir of Mark Antony's empire in the East. You'll need to do the recommended reading to be convinced of this.
Sorry, no information on Romanians, just Romans so far. I haven't researched much beyond the 1st Century AD.
