Born an English princess, Marie Queen of Roumania, in this life story has given us a human document that is fascinatingly interesting. Daughter of the Duke of Edinburgh and the Grand Duchess Marie, grand-daughter of Queen Victoria and the Tsar Alexander II, she was related to most of the old European royalties.
Her pen pictures of her noble relations are sharply drawn and she makes these notables of a past era live again in her pages: for she is a skilled writer. Affianced at sixteen and married at seventeen to a foreign prince, her love for him and for her adopted country, not less than her vitality and the influence of her happy girlhood carried her through some poignantly unhappy experiences, as well as many of happiness and glamour.
