      Until her marriage in 1934 the glamourous Princess Marina of Greece spent an adventurous but little publicized childhood in her homeland and 12 years in exile with her family. She is descended from both the Greek and Russian royal families. No less artistic inteligent and headstrong than her husband she and Prince George came to dominate London society.
