Book review

In A Measure of Understanding, Queen Frederica, mother of King Constantine of the Hellenes tells the story of her life from her lonely childhood in a huge castle in the Harz Mountains up to the death in Athens of her husband, King Paul, in 1964, her life has been one of action, beset by war and civil strife, by turbulence, controversy and extremes of happiness and sorrow. Her passionate concern has been for her family, for Greece and for the Greek people but her questing mind has always been searching for the deeper meaning of life. It has led her to an abiding interest in science and philosophy, provoked and encouraged by General Smuts, whom she first met when living in temporary exile with her young children in South Africa during the Second World War. By temperament a plain speaker, Queen Frederica has written a fascinating and indeed unique memoir of the life of a twentieth century Queen. She has also given an absorbingly interesting exposition of the philosophy and belief to which she has come through study, through meditation and through personal involvement in some of the most critical events in modern European history. Throughout the book, the reader is sharply aware of an author possessed of great humour, including the gift of self-mockery, o lively intelligence and of a deep and genuine interest in and affection for her fellowmen and women.
