Geraldine reunited with son

April 13, 1939

Queen Geraldine of Albania has regained sufficient strength to be reunited with her infant son, Prince Skander. The queen is recuperating in a Greek hospital. Her husband, King Zog, who is now wearing civilian clothes, "spends most of his time in seclusion," at a local inn or at his wife's bedside, according to an AP report.
The prince was only two days old when he and his Hungarian-American mother were forced to leave Tirana following the Italian invasion of Albania.
