Princess Fawzia of Egypt (1921-2013)

HRH Princess Fawzia of Egypt, daughter of King Fuad I (sister of King Farouk, aunt of King Fuad II) and first wife of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi of Iran, died yesterday at the age of 91. She will be buried in Cairo. As Egypt undergoes yet more turmoil with the military ouster of President Morsi today, one more link to an era when Egyptians enjoyed relative stability and liberty is gone. Egypt and Iran are still paying the price for the ouster of her brother & nephew and husband respectively.
