English Royalty. Born Helena Victoria, she was the eldest daughter of Princess Helena of Great Britain and Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein, and a granddaughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Called "Thora" by her family, Princess Helena never married. She was a tireless patron of charities, and was created a Dame Grand Cross of the Order of Bath, a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, and was a Lady of the Order of Victoria and Albert and a Lady of the Order of the Crown of India. The royal family dropped all Germanic titles in 1917, and Helena became simply Princess Helena Victoria. Suffering ill health and confined to a wheelchair after World War II, one of her last major public appearances was at the wedding of Princess Elizabeth to Philip Mountbatten in 1947. She died at Fitzmaurice Palace at the age of 77. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
