List of persons, partly with addresses, to be informed of the death of Princess Elisabeth of Romania (1894-1956), former Queen of Greece, and to be sent funeral invitations.

Marc Favrat gained fame through his relationship with Princess Elisabeth, who finally settled in Cannes some years after her expulsion from Romania in 1947, after the Romanian People's Republic had been proclaimed. The much younger aspiring artist Favrat became Elisabeth's lover, equerry (or Grand Chamberlain), and adopted son in the year of her death.

Light brownstaining. With a few notes and markings in red and blue pencil, as well as a small sketched drawing.
