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.
