King Carol II of Romania wants his mother, Dowager Queen Marie, to leave Romania "because of a new quarrel between them," Balkan diplomatic sources have told the Associated Press.
The quarrel is said be based on an a letter blaming Carol for "bad conditions in the country."
It has been alleged that Queen Marie sent the letter to Princess Helen, Carol's former wife, who, in turn, sent the letter to the King.
Helen apparently sent the letter to Carol to show "what kind of a person he is and what his own mother thinks of him."
This incident has apparently increased tensions at the court between Carol and his mother. He refused to "hear anything" about her, and is demanding that she "live abroad.
