Princess Victoria Alice (Alice) of Battenberg (1885-1969) became a religious mystic. She was placed in a mental institution by her husband, Prince Andrew of Greece, in 1930. After three years she gained her release but understandably did not return to Prince Andrew. She lived in Athens during WWII working with the poor. Alice later established an order of Greek Orthodox nursing nuns. She was deaf and read lips in 3 languages.
