Princess Maria Krystyna of Altenburg (1923-2012)
died yesterday in Poland at the age of 88. As obituaries at blogs such as Royal Musings and Eurohistory make clear, her long life was deeply affected by the vicissitudes of the twentieth century, but it ended peacefully in the same town where she was born, Maria Krystyna having become a popular local figure living in a small apartment on what had been her father's estate. Requiescat in pace.
