Ion Luca Caragiale was a Romanian playwright and short story writer. His plays are characterised by a classical construction and a very acute observation of the social realities of the time, always mixed with a fine sense of irony. As a founding figure of Romanian literature, Caragiale is portrayed on the old 1,000,000 lei note issued in December 2003 and also on the new 100 lei banknote issued after the denomination process in late 2005.
