Helen's brother pleads her case

March 19, 1932

Princess Helen, the former wife of King Carol II, has received the support of her older brother, the exiled King George II of the Hellenes. He left Florence, Italy, earlier tonight, and is traveling to Bucharest to "try to induce King Carol to induce a more liberal financial allowance" on the former Queen.

According to the Associated Press,  "persons close to the former Grecian royal family" said King George "planned a thorough discussion of the matter."  There are also reports that a "reconciliation between Carol and Helen" might take place.
