Days of Our Lives: Princess Gina Was A Pawn Of Stefano DiMera

Princess Gina was one of Stefano’s pawns. He used her to steal and forge art. After John Black was believed to have died Gina went into a depression and refused to paint for Stefano anymore. She went into seclusion in a castle in Europe. In need of a replacement, Stefano brainwashed Hope Brady to believe she was Princess Gina. Stefano lured Princess Gina to Maison Blanche with the promise that he could cure her depression. He instead locked her in a castle turret at her house, Chateau de Reves, in Paris. Gina began going mad until her daughter Greta Van Amberg ( Juliane Morris) arrived. After the visit, Gina began reclaiming her mind and life.

Her manservant, Kurt, allows Gina to attend a ball thrown in her honor, where Hope was acting as Gina. Then Gina, posing as Countess Elsa Schwengel, came face to face with her imposter. While talking with Hope she discovered her true love John was alive and living in Salem. So, Gina lured Hope to her chateau and locked her up. Gina had plastic surgery to look like Hope. Then she headings to Salem to reclaim John Black as her own.
