I scrounged up some interesting information on Eugenie from her mother's biography.  In childhood, both her father and her mother favored her brother Peter.  However, this worked out strangely:
"Marie was proud of having given birth to a boy.  Despite her principles of fairness in devoting equal time to the children in their games and education, she was unaware of the degree to which she favored the boy.  But she was even more unaware that her love for Peter was more crippling than enabling for him."

 Eugenie studied Chinese under the direction of Soulie de Morant, a distinguished sinologist.  She attended public schools, as did Peter.  They called their great uncle Valdemar "Papa Two" because they saw him so frequently.  Marie Bonaparte wanted to stimulate her children's intellect and imagination, but their governess Croisy was highly conventional and both children became confused between two sets of values.  From reading the biography, I gathered that both Marie and George loved the children, but maintained a distance from them.  While Eugenie was going through puberty, Marie was busy being psychoanalysed by Freud in Vienna.

In November of 1926, when Eugenie was 16, she became very ill and Marie rushed to Paris to be with her.  Dr. Talamon warned the parents that she probably had tuberculosis.  "George remarked that doctors were pessimists and went on to state that he was glad it was not Peter." >:(
 What a hideous thing to say!!!
 On Dec. 10th tuberculosis was confirmed and Eugenie spent the next eight years in ill health.  She suffered initially from pulmonary tuberculosis.  "She accepted her illness with good grace and much consideration towards others," writes Celia Bertin.  Marie began to spend more time with her.  "She wrote Freud that only Eugenie understood her, a sentence  she was often to repeat."
 During her illness, Eugenie lived in her own house and spent her time reading and playing with her pet chow-chows.  
 Although it's terrible Eugenie's health restricted so many years of her youth, she survived tuberculosis which killed so many people in the past.
Grand Duchess Alice of Hesse:  "Each year brings us nearer to the Wiedersehen [reunion with the dead], though it is sad to think how one's glass is running out, & how little good goes with it, compared to the numberless blessings we receive.  Time goes incredibly fast."

Hello,

I am also very interested in Eugenie of Greece, daughter of Marie Bonaparte...

Here are already very nice pictures, I finde them very hard to find somewhere else..

But has anybody got a picture of Eugenies first husband  Dominik Radziwill?

And any picture of Fabiola Fruchaud, the daughter of

Tatiana Radziwill and granddaughter of Eugenie of
Greece??

Unfortunately I could not find any, but would be very very glad if anybody found one and could post it.

And one last question: On this site there was posted a picture with Eugenie of Greece and two of her children, a little boy and a girl, she was older than the boy.

Is the boy Karl Alexander of Thurn and Taxis or Jerzy Radziwill?

( I mean is it her son from the first or from the second marriage?)

Thanks for any help!

Hello,

Do you have the exact title of this book? Is this book still available and are there also pictures of the Fruchards and Dominik Radziwill?

Do you think it can be bought also in Germany?? ???

Thanks... ::)

My Dear,

The book is called "Inheitors of Alexander The Great" and it was out of print years ago. The Chapter on Prince George and Marie had Princess Tatiana and George Andrew. The Wedding photo of Princess Tatiana and Dr. Fruchaud. Three photos of their children were also included. Since these were provided by Princess Tatiana herself...They are rare indeed !

The pictures must be phantastic. One member sent me some pictures concerning Marie and Prince Georg from this book. They are very fine.

Is there anything in it concerning the other Bonaparte members from today?

Princes Murat, Princes Napoleon etc...other descendants?

the Inheritors of Alexander the Great was published in a limited edition in the late 1980s by Atlantic International (which is now defunct.)

I have a good selection of the photos that were used in the book, but it would be a violation of international copyright laws to scan and post these photos - unless the original print is more than 75 years old.  Thus, it is actually illegal to post photographs that are less than 75 years old unless you are the photographer or you own the rights to the photos.  I have many of the photos from the book, but I do not own the rights to the photos . ... I own the prints, but not the right to print them without permission of the copyright holders.

I think we have already a lot of scanned photos here that are less than 75 years old (Marie Bonaparte etc)!

Do we have to fear to come into prison now? ;D
