She's one of the daughters of Umberto II I think, I'm not too good with Italian royalty. I realized that I never saw pictures of her when you said it, so I looked for some. There's some on worldroots.com, here's the link:

Maria Gabriella of Savoy is the mother of Emanuel Filiberto. I've always found it interesting that one of EF's names is Reza, like the Shah's.

I dont know exactly,it was just written that she was an italian princess,duaghter of the late king of Italy Umberto II.
she had a brief affair with shah,and during a travel with her brother to Iran Shah proposed to her,but Gholamreza's wife secretly told the bride to be's brother about how Maria Gabriella would be hurt by Shah's sister specialy Ashraf,so despite Maria Gabriela's emotions for Shah her brother made her refuse to marry him.

it's because Shah and EF remained close friends for always.EF had a company in Iran named Bel that made helicopters.

You mean Maria Gabriela of Savoy, as in the one who almost became queen of Spain?!?!? She was King Juan Carlos girlfriend before Sofia catched his eye, and I believe reading she, Gabriela of Savoy was after his big affair with countess Olghina Robiland.
Small world!

Important anthropological & historical facts from Devin

May I add from a racial point of view Queen Fawzieh was not of Mulatto/Arab extraction, but Hamito/Aryan White, as the original Egyptians were; her phenotype strongly proves that. Bear in mind, that the Imperial Iranian court or should I say Reza Shah himself was very careful who to pick as the wife for the future regent of Iran. The Shah had a close relation to Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany and was to send 50,000 students and 6000 of his best soldiers to Himmler's SS for the war against Communist Russia in 1941. Yes, Iranians were very active during the war just as many other countries including Sweden.

Grace never had an affair with the Shah or anyone else for that matter. Once she married Prince Rainier, that was it for her. She didn't have the time or inclination to have an affair, although Rainier certainly did.

Yes, there are many sources that agree Grace never committed adultery, however she was once romantically linked with the Shah before she married, in fact I think it was sometime during the late 1940's, at the end of the war and the Shah's divorce to Fawzia. Even though their relationship was not of romance, but the Shah was known to still admire Grace, I think I read in Asadollah Alam's memoir (or diary) and in a few chapter the Shah praises Grace's beauty and her wonderful character.

From Wikipedia:
On March 28 1949, in Cairo, Princess Fawzia married Colonel Ismail Hussain Shirin Bey, (1919-1994), a distant cousin and onetime Egyptian Minister of War and the Navy.
The couple had two children: Nadia (born 1950) and Muhammed (born 1955).

Fawzia Shirin is the senior member of the deposed Egyptian Royal Family residing in Egypt. Her nephew Fuad, who was proclaimed King Fuad II of Egypt upon the departure of his father into exile in Europe, resides in Switzerland.

Her death was mistakenly reported in January 2005. Journalists had confused her with her niece Princess Fazia (Fevziye) (1940-2005), one of the three daughters of King Farouk. (Fawzia is a sister of King farouk.)

Here is a pic from that site (also from her post below) which is too good to pass up.

Thank you, Hilal! This link you posted here is a grateful surprise to me. I'm very interested in the Egyptian Souverain family, and the pics that appears in it, are wonderful and very rare to find. I'm a fan of Mohammed Ali Pacha, and was very nice to find so many portraits of him.
