Queen Marie of Romania. Born Princess of Great Britain, and Queen Victoria's granddaughter, she might have been queen of England. Her first cousin, later George V, proposed to her and was accepted. However, though the match was approved by the fathers, neither mother liked it, and it was broken off. She would have been quite a different queen from Queen Mary!
