The Dornier was crowned Miss Europe 30 May 1966 at Nice in France, where the representative of France had the better of the eighteen competitors of the competition.Miss Europe was a beauty pageant with female contestants from all over Europe. It was established in February 1929 by Maurice de Waffle and first held at the Paris Opera with participants from 18 countries. The most recent pageant was held in 2006. The contest was interrupted by the onset of World War II but later re-established by Mr. Zeigler (of the Moulin Rouge) and Claude Berr. Most contestants won their respective national contests for Miss World and Miss Universe, and participated as supplemental training for their respective competitions. If the titleholders had not succeeded in winning their international titles, titleholders eventually competed for the Miss Europe crown, such as the case of France's Elodie Gossuin, who placed in the top ten at Miss Universe 2001 and won the Miss Europe title in the subsequent year. After the death of Berr, Roger Zeigler sold the license for the pageant to Endemol France, part of the Dutch television production company Endemol, in 2003.
