Marie snubbed by Rupprecht

December 20, 1931

The Dowager Queen Marie of Romania left for Bucharest tonight "after tried vainly to see the former Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria," reports the Associated Press.

Rupprecht,  the head of the Bavarian royal family, has not "forgotten Queen Marie's role in winning Rumania over to the Allies' side in the World War."

Marie spent four weeks in Munich with her youngest daughter, Ileana, and her son-in-law, Archduke Anton of Austria, and "was frequently seen at the theatre first nights."
Marie, the widow of King Ferdinand, failed in an attempt to arrange a meeting with the former Crown Prince.
