Abstract
The reason for which I have chosen to recall the memory of adjutant General Ernest Ballif was determined by the fact that he played a significant part in the process of Crown Domain reconstruction, seriously damaged in World War I (1916-1918).
Always present near the King family as deputy, Marshal of the Royal Court or Crown Domain Administrator, Ernest Ballif took part at the most important political or economical events between 1916-1941.
Although, his friend Radu Rosetti dedicated him very large biographical, there are a lot of aspects of the general Ballif activity, as Crown Domain Administrator, which have remained less know that’s way I made this study.

Keywords
adjutant General Ernest O. Ballif, Crown Domain Administrator,1920-1942, deputy, Marshal of the Royal Court.
