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?

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.

King George II met with President Franklin Roosevelt to seek war supplies for Greek forces.


King George II was overjoyed to return to Greece in 1946.

Today has been celebrated in Greece the Day of "OXI", this is the day of "no" to the fascism. This day commemorates the rejection by the King George and the dictator, Ioannis Metaxas to the ultimatum made by Benito Mussolini on 28 October 1940 .

Greece said no to Mussolini. The Greeks were called to war to defend the country, the King and the dictator Metaxas called for the unity of the country to defend against foreign attack.
Greece managed to beat Italy, but months later the help of the Nazis caused the country to be invaded. This was very relevant, because Greece said no to the fascism, and we positioned with allied countries during the Second World War.

I publish this, because I have read articles about 28 of october in which King George of Greece does not appear in this story, he has been delete of historic books as if he had not existed . This is a terrible historical misrepresentation, King George was the Head of State and Chief of the Army, he was an essential element to say, not to the fascism.

In photo is Metaxas, king George, Papagos...

Crown Prince Paul participated in this war

and Queen Freideriki was nurse...

I am very tired of seeing so much historical misrepresentation. If King George was deleted of the books, who was Head of State in 1940?

May have been Romanian. She inherited her mother's pearl tiara.

Her mother had a similar pearl necklace.

The pendant was removable as she wore it with other pieces like a sapphire.

I cant find any definitive answer on the necklace in the photo (and the information of Marie's necklace isn't clear either). But the shortest of the three loops is hidden under Elisabeth's neckline, you see the top of it.
