It's a boy for Ileana and Anton

August 15, 1932

Princess Ileana of Romania gave birth to a son at 3 a.m.  Mother and son are doing well, according to the physicians.

The New York Times reports that the infant archduke will be named Stefan. He will take his father's nationality -- Austrian -- and will not be a Romanian citizen.

The exiled King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, who are now at Koenigswarth, Czechoslovakia, and King Carol II of Romania, will be the godparents, although King Carol is not expected to attend the baptism.

The birth took place at the family's villa in Mödling, near Vienna.
