    (December 13, 1906-August 27, 1968)
    Born in Athens, Greece
    Born Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark
    Married to Prince George, Duke of Kent (1934-1942)
    She was a smoker.
    British women took up smoking because they saw her smoking in public.
    She was very snobbish.
    She referred to her sisters-in-law, the Duchess of Gloucester and the Queen Mother, as 'those common little Scottish girls.'
    Although she was a princess of Greece, she had no Greek ancestry.
    She and her husband were cousins.
    Her husband was bisexual. (Can you say 'beard'?)
    Her family was deposed and she grew up poor.
    Her daughter-in-law, Princess Michael of Kent, is even more snobbish than she was, if that's possible.
    Her husband was killed in World War II, leaving her a widow with three small children.
    She was the last foreign-born princess to marry into the British royal family.
    The Kinks recorded a song called 'She's Bought a Hat Like Princess Marina.'
    She performed a lot of royal duties even after her husband's death.
    She died of a brain tumor.
