A Right Royal Riddle: Who Am I?



A Gotha Quiz: Who Am I?

By Darren Shelton for the European Royal History Journal.

I was the daughter of a king, and the granddaughter of another king. My mother, a child bride, was a truly royal woman with the common touch. 
 
A member of a large family, I had a wonderful and relaxed childhood. Several vied for my hand, one in particular, and the most determined of these men, although a ruler, turned my stomach. Fortunately I was spared his ultimate fate. 
 
When I eventually settled into the marital state, my husband came from a house that had many alliances with my own. My early married life was one of luxury, then circumstances outside of my control altered my life beyond all scope. 
 
I lost my husband and raised our two children alone. I eventually married a second time, a native of my country.

Who am I?

The answer will be posted on Wednesday.

+++++++


I am Princess Marie of Greece and Denmark (1876-1940), the daughter of King George I of the Hellenes and Grand Duchess Olga Constantinovna of Russia. After being courted by King Alexander of Serbia, I married Grand Duke George Mikhailovich of Russia, who was killed by the Bolsheviks during the Russian Revolution. George and I had two daughters: Xenia and Nina. I remarried Admiral Periklis Ioannidis.
