One of the major changes produced in the new state organization, as a result of the event of January 1859, consisted in the unification of the flotillas of the two Romanian principalities, on October 22, 1860, under the signature of ruler Alexandru Ioan Cuza, an act that is the basis for the establishment of the modern Romanian Navy,” reads the release to Agerpres.
