Background
Mother Alexandra was born in 1909 as Princess Ileana of Romania, the youngest daughter of King Ferdinand I and Queen Marie. Ileana married Archduke Anton of Austria and lived in Sonnberg, Austria. She gave birth to six children, whom she moved in 1944 to Romania. She founded a hospital there in memory of her mother, Queen Marie and worked with the war-wounded and the surrounding population until 1948, when the Romanian royal family left the country for exile.
