Re: Slightly O/T: Death of the "Queen-Mother" of Georgia
Is Prince David living permanently in Georgia?
Mercedes Zornoza Ponce de León (b.1942), first wife of Pr.Jorge de Bagration and mother of 3 of his 4 children, passed away suddenly on March 17 in Villafranca del Castillo in the Madrid region. https://www.revistavanityfair.es/sociedad/articulos/maria-de-las-mercedes-zornoza-muerte-quien-era-georgia/44571
She had just talked on the phone with her daughter Maria Antonieta when she colapsed.
Her eldest son Irakli, who had renounced his rights to the georgian succession, was absent in Athens and her younger son David, current head of the house, was in Georgia, and neither could attend her funeral.
