In this episode, Papsy has first-hand experience of how a hot temper can lead a man to beggary. Tongues wagged with rumours that Nicolas—in fact, a mirror image of Ferdinand—was Waldorf Astor's son. What the gossips ignored was the fact that Marie was equally close with Waldorf's sister, Pauline Astor, who did even more than her brother to provide her Royal friend with shared mutual interests and a sympathetic ear for her many troubles.

The Astor relationships ended in the most natural way, with the marriages of both brother and sister. In , when Waldorf's forthright American wife, Nancy, discovered that Marie was writing to him every day, she put an end to the correspondence. Fortunately for Marie, she had a new set of friends among the Romanian aristocracy by this time, and was able to depend on them for the closeness and support she craved. She thrived on sympathetic attention, which fed her childlike personal vanity, and found it particularly with the Stirbeys, her friend Princess Nadeje and Nadeje's husband Prince Barbu, and his sister Princess Marthe Bibescu.

It was only a matter of time, though, before Barbu Stirbey emerged as the new love of Marie's life. He was just the man for it, with his dark Romanian good looks and hypnotic personality. Stirbey, however, was a man of far greater substance than Marie's former admirers—a self-made industrialist and commercial millionaire with a great interest in the political future of Romania.

Beauty, in other words, had at least met brains.

In , when Barbu and Marie first became close, the future of Romania looked black. That year there was a peasant rebellion which involved looting and burning on great estates like the Stirbeys' at Buftea, just outside Bucarest. Eventually, the revolt was quelled by new laws that gave the peasants certain land rights. For a time, though, Bucarest was under threat from a 4,strong peasant army and wives and children were sent for safety into the countryside.

The Stirbeys and Marie were thrown together at this time of crisis and it was then that Barbu Stirbey made the transition from just another social acquaintance to a strong influence in Marie's life. For the first time she began to learn, from him, about more serious problems—the backwardness of Romania, the gulf between rich and poor, and the perils of socialist revolution that could sweep away the old order and their high-born, privileged class with it. If somewhat late in the day, Marie was acquiring a social and political conscience.

What Barbey could not give her, though, was personal experience of the real, cruel world outside the gilded Royal portals which, till now, had bounded Marie's existence. This Marie acquired for herself in the Balkan War of , when she witnessed suffering or a large scale in field hospitals close to the fighting fronts. Marie was appalled to see men dying on stretchers from unbandaged wounds, or burning with cholera, unwashed, unfed and untended.

Sights like these turned a woman many—including perhaps herself—considered a vain little flirt into a campaigner of missionary zeal. Heedless of discomfort, dirt and the danger of infection, Marie toured the ramshackle rooms that passed for wards, brought in cigarettes, food and other comforts for the men and sat by cholera victims as they fought the live-or-die crisis of the disease.

The experience was horrific, but cathartic. Marie emerged from it with a new resolve to be of service to her country and with the courage to face any adversity that came her way. The metamorphosis of Marie came just in time. At once, he was confronted with an emergency.

Dream Princess 3, Prince Gallant Series by Philip Begho | | Booktopia

The First World War had begun only two months before and Ferdinand, shrinking from the chance that Romania might be drawn in against his birthplace, Germany, fought hard for neutrality. Events were against him.

In , when the Russians, advancing westward, thrashed the Germans and their Austrian allies in Transylvania, Romanians saw a chance of retrieving their original homeland. Ferdinand could not resist the tide of national sentiment, and was obliged to sign a declaration of war at the end of August. It was a fearful mistake.

Once the Germans and Austrians had recovered their equilibrium, the Romanian army was thrashed in one defeat after another, until the hospitals in Bucarest were filled with wounded men, and the victims of German air raids on the capital. Marie set up her own hospital in the grounds of the Royal Palace, and tirelessly toured this and other hospitals, serving meals, providing comforts and carrying armfuls of blankets to warm the patients as a bitter, freezing winter set in.

Tragedy also struck directly at her at this dramatic time.

In November , her youngest son, Prince Mircea, died of typhoid, aged three. It was, however, typical of the new, stronger and more valiant Marie that she forced herself to work through her grief. She went out to bring aid to villages stricken by an outbreak of typhus in and toured the war front where she sat with the soldiers in foxholes filled with mud and water.

By this time, just over a year after entering the War, the Romanian cause was hopeless. The Bolshevik revolution removed Romania's ally, Tsarist Russia, and her army was clearly unable to fight on alone. There was talk of Marie, Ferdinand and their children fleeing for safety to England, but Marie refused to leave. She was all for resistance at any cost—and to the last. It never came to that. Romania surrendered on 6th December, , and a pro-German government was installed which Marie stoutly refused to recognise. But there was no play-acting involved when she set up her own hospital in the Palace grounds for victims of German air raids on the capital Bucarest, during the First World War.

Eventually, within a year, the need for Marie's defiance was removed. In November , the German war effort in western Europe collapsed and Germany surrendered. Meanwhile, a family scandal had arisen which eclipsed any of Marie's actual or rumoured love affairs. Ferdinand and Marie were horrified. Not only had Carol flouted the law which barred Royals from marrying Romanians, but he had done so with the aid of his country's enemies. What was more, he had deserted his regiment, a capital offence. The mild-mannered Ferdinand, for once roused to near manic fury, sent an aide to bring Carol home and clapped him into confinement at Bistriza monastery high up in the mountains.

There were terrible scenes when parents and son confronted each other. Ferdinand accused Carol of treachery. Marie spoke of personal betrayal.

Carol loudly defended Zizi and their marriage was annulled in January To compound the whole sorry affair, Zizi was pregnant at the time. Carol was bundled off a world tour to "forget" and the cure seemed to work. Shortly after his return to Romania, he proposed to, and was accepted by, Princess Helene of Greece.

What she could not know was that Carol was rotten through and through, and that, within a mere five years, he would desert Helene and Romania for yet another and far more damaging love. Marie evolved into the next stage in her life, as mother-in-law and grandmother, without essentially changing or making any concession to the supposed dignities of mature years. She was still coquettish, still beautiful, and still theatrical.

She went in for large sweeping gestures and dazzling smiles and indulged her still vibrant romantic sense in her own special dress—brilliantly embroidered peasant frocks for day, and flowing veils and robes for evening. Marie could afford the flamboyance. After the War, she was a national heroine, and had emerged as what she always wanted to be—a personality in her own right.

In the s, Marie embarked on a career of her own as Romania's greatest publicist.
