Queen Mary's last letter to her children / Ultima scrisoare a Reginei Maria adresată copiilor
|Limba de redactare
|In 1968, three manuscripts entered by acquisition from Ana Iamandi the former Party Museum’s patrimony: Queen Mary’s will (copy) and two letters belonging to Queen Mary (“To my country and my people” and To my children”). Being dated 1933, the two letters have also an inner testamentary value, the Queen clearly stating her last wishes. In this article, we’ve taken a closer look over the letter entitled “To my children”, which we entirely reproduce. The tone of the letter is a reconciling one, the Queen forgiving her two sons for the way in which their relationship evolved. At the same time, she asks of them to stay united and protect their sisters. She speaks of all the things she loved and the way in which she would like the inheritance to be devided: the Balcic property to Carol, the Brad property to Ileana, the Copăceni property to Elisabeta She also demands that her body be put to rest at Curtea de Arges, next to king Ferdinant and her heart placed at Stella Maris, in Balcic. At her funeral, the coffin would be carried by Rosiori?, and would be placed on a gun carriage, because a black funeral wagon frightened her.
