Elżbieta Przewłocka, nee Princess Czartoryska died in Otwock on 23 September.

She was born in Konarzewo (Poland) on 20 May 1926 as firstborn of eight children of Prince Roman Jacek Maria Czartoryski (1898-1958) & his wife Teresa, nee Countess Zamoyska (1902-1978)
She married in Puszczykowo (Poland) on 28 April 1951 Jan Henryk Janusz Przewłocki (1927-2007) [son of Henryk Jan Stanisław Przewłocki (1884-1946) & his wife, Countess Karolina Maria Hutten-Czapska (1891-1967), Polish engineer, teacher, publisher, collector and bibliophile, a democratic opposition activist in communist Poland] by whom she had two children: Grzegorz (b.1952) & Dorota (b.1953).

From her seven siblings only two, Anna Maria Ksawera (b.1932, widow of Prince Albert Hieronim Radziwiłł) & the youngest, Stanisław (b.1939) are still alive.

Curiosity: her living sister, Anna Maria Ksawera has been blessed with a very big family: from her three children she has twenty grandchildren and (as for now) sixteen great-grandchildren.
