pseudonym of Elizabeth, Queen of Roumania. A German poet and story-writer; born at Castle Monrepos near Neuwied, Dec. 29, 1843. In 1869 she was married to Charles, then Prince, now King, of Roumania. Among her works (all in German) are: "Roumanic Poems" (1881); "Tempests"; "Songs from the Dimbovitza Valley" (1889). Her tragedy "Master Manole" (1892) had a brilliant success in the Burgh Teatre, Vienna.
