Summary/Abstract: When the First World War started, the Romanians of Transylvania were fond of Franz Ferdinand project for the federalization of the Empire. Consequently, from 1914 to 1916 they hoped for the national problem to be resolved with the good will of Vienna. The Romanian officers were also loyal to the Austro-Hungarian state. But when Romania entered the war a crisis of loyalty began to manifest and at the end of the war, all the Romanian officers serving within the Austro-Hungarian army showed themselves eager to fight for the cause of the Romanian nation.
