Helen & Irene to claim Greek jewels

May 20, 1930

Princess Helen, the Princess Mother of Roumania, and her sister, Princess Irene of Greece, are, according to court circles, in Vienna to "negotiate" with President Zaimis of Greece for the return of some of the property belonging to the exiled Greek royal family.
The president is in Vienna to be treated by an oculist.
It is understood, according to the New York Times, that the two princesses will "request the return of jewels, furniture and other semi-private property of the royal family."
