and yes THE qUEEN ELIZABETH OF ROMANIA wrote poetry with the name of Carmen Sylba, when you're looking famous phrases, you find phrases of her , for example:: Foolishness is always placed first in line to be seen, the intelligence behind to see.

but Carmen Sylba was Queen Elizabeth of Romania(1843-1916) She was not Queen Elizabeth of Greece.

Queen elizabeth of Romania(Carmen Sylba) was aunt of Princess Elizabeth.(Queen of Greece)(I think)
You misunderstand me, dear Beltraneja. If you read my post carefully, I wrote that King Carol and his consort, Elizabeth aka Carmen Sylva raised Princess Elizabeth, who married into the Greek royal family. From what I have read, King Ferdinand and Queen Marie of Rumania were very upset because their two oldest children, Carol and Elizabeth, who later became Queen of Greece, were brought up at the King's table, not theirs, and this could account for the children's poor behavior.

Sorry for the error. I did not mean that my message would was well. I pretended to answer in the second part to Stef. because the words of Queen Elizabeth, is very similar to what was said by Stef of the Greek Queen, but it was the aunt who said it, no Greek Queen

Understandable and no offense taken on my part. I love these discussions on Royal Forums! Your comments have now made me curious about Queen Elizabeth of Greece--besides being the eldest daughter of Queen Marie of Rumania, I really do not know much about her. Did the Greeks like her at all?

Believe me there are many people who think that King George died unmarried, I have found more informations of the live of Queen Elizabeth in story of her brother Carol.

She was a very intelligent Princess, with a powerful interest for arts (you can see Elisabeta Palace in Bucharest built by her to understand her artistic taste) but not a real interest in having children and having a family.

The reality was she had nothing in common with her husband.

Is it true that Wilhelm II of Germany considered Princess Elisabeth of Romania as a wife for one of his sons? If Yes, which Prince?
King George II of Greece was called "King of Claridges", after the Claridge Hotel he spent much of his exile in.

At noon on April 1, 1947, King George II dies in the palaces of Athens, from a heart attack at the age 57 years.
