There is so little know about this strong lady, who played a big role in the last chapters of the IF and that of her husband (and the other prisoners).

I would like to know some more information.

Me too,but several days ago I found some parts of them on the web,so I think either the parts of it or the whole memoires are called ''I was at Ecaterinburg''!

By the way Princess Helena very much resembles her mother Princess Zorka of Montenegro!And her aunts also...Helena and her two aunts Militza and Anastasia!

"I was at Ekaterinburg" is the title of them. Atlantis (Greg & Penny's magazine) excerpted at least part of them. Perhaps they have back issues? I think they were originally in French and Penny translated them. I don't have copies myself though.  :(

I've been searching through rare book stores and can't find the book at all.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow ---- What a ride!!!"

Princess Helena Petrovna as a child with her brothers George and Alexander(future King Alexander I) and with their cousin Paul(future regent)!


Crown Prince George of Yugoslavia (1887 1972) was the older brother of Alexander I of Yugoslavia, son of Peter I, King of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes and Princess Zorka of Montenegro. George Crown Prince of Serbia, from 1929 styled HRH Prince George of Yugoslavia, was born at Rijeka. Prince George was mentally and emotionally unstable and was forced to renounce the right to the throne in favor of his brother Alexander on March 15, 1909. He morganatically married Radmila Radonyich (1907-1993)(civ) 1949 (rel) 1955 .

Yes,he was very mentally instable!Once he ordered his cousin Prince Paul to ''dance'' while he ''was shooting rats'' between his legs...
