The birth registration of Maria Teresa Afif, 1920.

According to Le Figaro, Madame Marie-Thérèse de Damas died in France on 13 December 2021; she was 101 years-old. Marie-Thérèse was the widow of René de Damas, who she married in 1948. The couple had five children: Carmen, Etienne, Chantal, Anne, and Elisabeth. Marie-Thérèse was born Maria Teresa Afif on 11 November 1920 at Puebla, Mexico, as the daughter of Alejandro (Alexander) Afif and his wife Maria (née Attye). Her parents had emigrated to Mexico from Lebanon and Syria. Contemporary genealogies give her birth year as 1926; however, having researched the databases of Puebla, Mexico, it appears that several years were subtracted from not only Maria Teresa’s age, but that of her siblings as well. Marie-Thérèse was the sister-in-law of Prince Karl Anton of Hohenzollern and Princess Maria Anna of Saxony. The nephew of the deceased is Prince Alexander of Saxony, Margrave of Meißen.

May Marie-Thérèse Rest in Peace.
