The caption and information confuses two people.
The four images here are of Princess Elizabeth of Greece (1904 - 1955). She was the second of the three daughters of Prince Nicholas of Greece (1872 - 1938) and of his wife, Grand Duchess Elena Vladimirovna of Russia (1882 - 1957). She was therefore a granddaughter of King George I of Greece (1845 - 1913) and sister of Princess Marina, later Duchess of Kent (1906 - 1968). Princess Elizabeth married Count Carl Theodor of Toerring Jettenbach in 1934.
Your caption referes to Princess Elisabeth of Romania (1894 - 1956) who married King George II of Greece (1890 - 1947) in 1921. They had no children and were divorced in 1935.
There are occasions when we are unsure of the identity of a sitter or artist, their life dates, occupation or have not recorded their family relationships. Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
How do you know this? Please could you let us know your source of information.
