Princess Ileana of Romania told United Press she was "shocked to learn of her brother's death."

Former King Carol II died of a heart attack shortly after midnight at his home in Estoril, Portugal.

Princess Ileana is married to Archduke Anton of Austria.  She and their six children now live in Newton, Massachusetts, after being exiled from Romania in 1948.  They lived for several years in Argentina, before being admitted to the United States.
