Princess Martha Bibescu (Martha Lucia; née Lahovary; 1886 – 1973) also known outside of Romania as Marthe Bibesco, was a celebrated Romanian-French writer, socialite, style icon and political hostess. She spent her childhood at the noble Lahovary’s estates in Balotești and Biarritz, where she had an education in literature. During her life, she traveled to and moved around many European countries and met many contemporary influential political figures. During the post-World War I period she rebuilt her family estates. She lived in exile after World War II when communist rule in Romania started.
