The Name of the Day...

...belongs to Patricia Knatchbull, a great-great-grandchild of Queen Victoria, who died this week at age 93.

Lady Patricia, also known as Lady Brabourne and later Lady Mountbatten, was the daughter of Lord Louis Mountbatten, who was killed by the IRA in 1979. (The name Mountbatten was changed from Battenberg, originally a German name, during World War I due to anti-German sentiment.)
