Princess Alice of Battenberg, born Victoria Alice Elizabeth Julia Marie on February 25, 1885; died December 5, 1969.
In her childhood, her mother noticed that she was slow in learning to talk, and became concerned by her indistinct pronunciation. Eventually, she was diagnosed with congenital deafness. With encouragement from her mother, Alice learned to both lip-read and speak in English and German, French and Greek, with so much ease. She grew up in Germany, England and the Mediterranean.
On returning to Greece a few years later, her husband was blamed in part for the defeat of Greece in the Greco-Turkish War (1919–1922), and the family were once again forced into exile until the restoration of the Greek monarchy in 1935.
In 1930, she was diagnosed with schizophrenia and committed to a sanatorium. After her recovery, she devoted most of her remaining years to charity work in Greece. She stayed in Athens during the Second World War, sheltering Jewish refugees. After the war, she stayed in Greece and founded an Orthodox nursing order of nuns known as the Christian Sisterhood of Martha and Mary.
After the fall of King Constantine II of Greece and the imposition of military rule in Greece in 1967, she was invited to live at Buckingham Palace in London, where she died two years later. Her remains were transferred to the Mount of Olives in 1988.
