Was she buried there as well ?  ???

Most likely, she was. She had no children and no spouse. Her family had little money in exile, and her ex husband's family was not terribly wealthy, either. At least, not wealthy enough to tranport her remains elsewhere and then bury her. The only thing that makes me a little less than certain is the slight possibility that her older brother may have made some provision for her. But, I doubt this - he was far too selfish (as was she) for this to be likely.

I understood that the marriage failed in the horrors of the Smyna conquest by Turkey. In 1922 king Constantine had marched into the city and brought his son and the heavily pregnant Pss (I presume to stake a greek claim by having a possible future king born there) the resulting chaos and massacre of the population by the Turks led her to miscarriage.

I hadn't heard that before, very interesting. I had heard that Elisabeth had one miscarriage, but I thought it was very early in the pregnancy. If it was when she was heavily pregnant, it would have been stillborn and the gender would have been known and perhaps a name given.

The most embarassing photo of Elisabeta I think. She is just after a serious illness there and feels herself dramatic.

she doesnt have  good pictures after her marriage. I think the last beautiful picture i saw of her was this one...

With sister Ileana the day of her wedding



Queen Anne was so right when she said she said she saw thew evil in her eyes. I can see that too, not just in this picture.

I think she was much tortured and confused than evil. Like her cousin Charlotte of Saxe-Meiningen, she was sick. Longing for love but never recieve it, Elisabetta lashed at the people close to her: In this case her family. In review her life was really a sad and unfulfilled one.

Tortured? How? i ve just read that she was very spoiled by Carmen Sylva in her childhood

Not loved? I also thought that George II was very in love with her. That s why i dont understand why she did the things she did againts him . Oh well..you re saying she was sick, thats probably the best answer for my last question.

BTW...what kind of Sickness she had? Depression?.

Indeed...Elisabetta was spoiled by her great aunt, but she remained a dutiful daughter to Missy. She was an outstanding nurse duting the war. It was George II who fell in love with her, but she did not love him and told him so many times with her refusal. Finally she accepted him and moved to Greece. Queen Sophie was cold and inconsiderate to her. She gave her daughter-in-law no jewels, even Missy was miffed and said "At least I gave HER (Sophie's) daughter some jewelry !". The family spoke Greek whenever Elisabetta was with them. Only Grand Duchess Helen and Helen (her sister-in-law) was nice to her.

So Heleni was nice to her even tho when Elisaveta slapped her in the face ? (or this was just myth?)

Yes. But remember by the time the slapping happened, Elisabetta and George had seperated and she was of course loyal to Karol, her brother.
