This may have been discussed already, but I recently read in Zeepvat's "Queen Victoria's Family" that Queen Elisabeth divorced the King even though he adored her.  And that she was a very difficult, selfish person who often was a thorn in the side of her nephew, Michael.  

Is there any particular reason that Elizabeth chose to end the marriage and return to Romani?  I have often read that Queen Marie's children were considered spoiled by some.  Was it because of this or infidelity? Huh

I can imagine that King George II adored her, she had such a beautiful, fascinating face, but she looks quite cold and scary too. I would like to know why exactly they got divorced as well.

One reason was the sides they took in the Helene/Carol divorce. George was supportive of his sister, while Elisabetta was of her brother Carol.  Huh

Many are from ebay, old postcards, various internet sites, some old threads. I find Queen Elisabeth to be quite fascinating actually.

Does anyone know, has anyone ever written a biography of Q. Elisabetha?  Huh

Also are there any grand portraits painted of her as Queen, as there were for Olga, Sophie, Amalia, etc.?  Huh

The closest thing of a bio on Elisabetta was a series of articles written by John Wimbles for Royalty Digest on her.  Wink

They're great articles--lots of quotes from letters she wrote to her mother about her life in Greece. They can be ordered from Royalty Digest still even though they're from several years ago.

Would that be the one that she had the 'E's' put into the Tiara? Queen Anne Marie often wears it today. That's a stunning emerald parure, I love it.
