  Stonehenge: <Gh Davidescu died on January 3, 1973 marked by a rather modest financial situation. On 14 October 1974, Petra Davidescu, his wife, addressed the following to the Minister of Foreign Affairs: “I respectfully request that based on the activity submitted to the Ministry of Affairs Foreign of my husband, Davidescu Gheorghe, who died in 1973, to make the proposal for my husband's successor, my successor, to settle down a fair pension, as they currently receive a monthly pension of 495 lei”>
