    (July 2, 1882-September 21, 1962)
    Born in Saint-Cloud, France
    Great-granddaughter of Lucien Bonaparte
    Married Prince George of Greece
    Translated the works of Sigmund Freud into French
    Founded the French Institute of Psychoanalysis (1926)
    Wrote ‘The Life and Works of Edgar Allan Poe: A Psychoanalytic Interpretation’ (1934) and ‘Female Sexuality’ (1953)
    She conducted an adulterous affair with French Prime Minister Aristide Briand.
    The affair was rumored to be the result of either: (a) Briand seducing her in an ultimately futile attempt to bring Greece over to the Allied side during World War I; or (b) Princess Marie seducing Briand in an equally futile attempt to gain foreign support for a coup to overthrow King Constantine and put her husband on the Greek throne.
    In hopes of improving her ability to have orgasms, she underwent surgery to move her clitoris closer to her vagina.
    Unsatisfied with the results, she had the procedure repeated.
    She wrote to Freud for advice after she and her son Peter confessed to each other of having a mutual incestuous attraction. (Freud advised against acting on the desire; they apparently complied.)
    Her mother died a month after giving birth to her.
    Her wet nurse once drugged her in order to sneak out and have sex with her father’s half-brother, Pascal.
    She could read and write three languages by age seven.
    On their wedding night, Prince George said, ‘I hate it as much as you do. But we must do it if we want children,’ so it’s not too surprising she looked outside of her marriage for sexual fulfillment.
    It was to her that Freud commented, ‘The great question that has never been answered and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my 30 years of research into the feminine soul, is 'What does a woman want?’'
    She bribed Nazi officials to allow Freud to leave Vienna for London.
    She also spent a large portion of her fortune to rescue 200 Jewish families from Nazi Germany.
