The Iron Guard, also known as Legion of the Archangel Michael (Legiunea Arhanghelul Mihail) or the Legionnaire Movement (Mișcarea Legionară), was a Romanian fascist movement. It was founded by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu and later led by Horia Sima. In January 1941 the Legionnaires' rebellion and Bucharest pogrom took place. The Iron Guard Uprising was crushed and therefore the end of this movement was in sight.
