yeah, i want to know too and Eric...i still cant sympathize with her (for what i ve read in this topic, im not the only one )

BTW, The "Loyalty to  someone" is NOT an excuse to slap someone...NEVER. I want to know all the context of the story, because,..for what i know..sound like a very trashy behavior fom Elisaveta.

Some argument I think. Elisabetta was always a passionate woman who act before thinking, while Helen was the opposite. after the slap, she walked away from the scene with much fuss. Later Elisabetta did begged for her sister-in-law's forgiveness, and Helen did let bygones be bygones. Helen was a real lady !

Elisabetta was not the only royalty who slapped. Sandra of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (Aunt of Elisabetta) also slapped her sister Baby Bee in a heated argument. guess it runs in  the family.

yes but we re not talking here about Sandra, we re talking about Elisaveta and all her awkward behavior.

I am stating maybe it was a family trend. Anyway according to the letters she wrote home from Greece, Elisabetta was trying to fit in with the Greeks but she was never given the chance. Poor George was torn between his love for his wife and loyalty to his mother. When the marriage turn out childless, Elisabetta became bitter as she so hope to give George a child. All these information came from her letters to her mother Missy. Elisabetta might be a nasty bitter woman, but she sure wasn't born that way. After living in relative proverty with the Greeks, she suddenly became a rich woman after her father's death. That's when she start to throw her weight around as her marriage began to fail. The death knell was the divorce of Karol & Helen. George supported his sister, while Elisabetta supported her brother. Headstrong and passionate, Elisabetta's life became turbulent right up to her death.

In fact, Elisabeta argued that Carol had behaved in the same way she did.

I do not know if Helen really kept up relations with her sister in law after her divorce from George II. Indeed, George is the brother of Helen, it was natural that she supports him to the detriment of Elisabeta. Especially since this divorce recalled her own with Carol. On the films of this time, when the two women appear together, they seem to trade any glance or a word. Helen and Elisabeth appear simply ignore each other.

Anyway, I do wonder what kind of mother she would have been. Elisabetta was clearly not very maternal in nature.

Films ? Elisabetta was never an actress. There were some clips of her in the Mitterand DVD taken from old news reels.
