Ion Victor Antonescu (June 15th 1882 - June 1st 1946) was a Romanian soldier, later dictator (or Conducator) and convicted war criminal.
During the Second World War, he presided over two successive military dictatorships and allied Romania with Nazi Germany. This close alliance lasted until the 23rd August 1944, when he was deposed in a coup and later tried, convicted and executed by the communist regime in 1946.
Many Romanians now see Antonescu as a hero who was doing what was best for Romania. However, any achievements were washed away by his involvement in the Holocaust and the massacres he ordered.
Attemps at rehabilitation have been fruitless, mainly because many have involved either anti-semitism or have ignored important historical aspects.
In Benad361's parodiesEdit
He has allied himself with Oglinda Hitler (the Hitler featured in the film Oglinda, used in the parodies) to try and take on the parody universe. How successful this will be, remains to be seen.
He was also shown in the parody Benad361's Birthday: The Reactions. King Michael asks him to send birthday wishes and he gruffly replies that he will "certainly not" as he is too busy "protecting Romania from the Bolsheviks".
He was one of the key Parody Universe figures to participate on a holiday/adventure to Skull Island with Hitler, Fegelein, Stalin, Lt. Werner and others in August of 2011, as an attempt to end the hostility between the warring parody groups. He makes a brief appearance when seen fleeing from the stampeding and hostile dinosaurs with the others.
He also makes an appearance when he reluctantly agreed to do the presentation for the Unterganger of the Month awards in December 2012. King Michael is rude to him (effectively trolling him), and he briefly rants as a result, before storming out of the palace in rage.
In Benad361's Rosen Wars series, he appears in Episode 3 as a member of the Free Parody Universe Alliance's ruling council, and thus an opponent of Emperor Rosen and his new order. He is forced to evacaute to Russia, after Rosen's forces overrun Romania. After the bombing of Moscow begins, he evacuates to Planet Tukhachevsky, alongside the others.
In Episode 5 he is revealed as the traitor who provided information to Emperor Rosen. He was exposed, and denied the allegations. But when offered to shake on his denial by Gaddafi's son Khamis, he instead vindictively shot him with a concealed pistol on a spring-mechanism. He was then killed by Tukhachevsky.
