Romanian Navy ranks

Post by VJK » 10 Feb 2016 16:19

As per the pic below, the senior ranks of the Royal Romanian Navy were:
Amiral de flotă (King Mihail I) (1 thick, 1 medium, 5 thin stripes)
Amiral (1 thick, 1 medium, 3 thin stripes)
Viceamiral (1 thick, 1 medium, 2 thin stripes)
Contraamiral (1 thick, 1 medium, 1 thin stripe)

However, in the attached pics we can see both King Ferdinand I and King Carol II wearing 1 thick, 1 medium, 4 thin stripes. What rank was this?
