In 1890 the Queen of Romania stayed at the Marine Hotel, which was then called the Adelphi Hotel. She had been unwell and the Prince of Wales recommended a visit to Llandudno to help her get better. When she arrived, she wasn’t happy to be in a busy holiday resort.

Soon she fell in love with Llandudno and North Wales. She had written novels and poems in four different languages. She enjoyed a visit to the National Eisteddfod, the Welsh festival of writing and music.

The people of Llandudno liked her. Just before she left, the town’s children paraded past her hotel.
