Alexia and Pavlos were both married in London, but the last few Christenings have been in Greece.
Know that Their Majesty's travel freely in Greece very reguarly, and spend months at a time doing it,  I see no reason why this wedding wont also take place there.
Knowing  a little bit about Nikolaos, he might want to have a small wedding in a small chapel, like on one of the islands or one of the mountain villages, rather thean a big event in the heart of Athens.

Might be possible Ilias.That combined with a grand pre-wedding event at the Dorchester for European Royalty as Nikolaos has attended all the weddings of the various princes and princesses here in dear old europe and can not just shuffle away without anyone on his own "big day",even tho he might wish he could.It won't work for the son of TM and the cousin of TM The King of Spain and the Queen of Denmark,it will be a grand event.He is the last of Europe's eligeble Princes of his generation of any Royal House,falsely deposed or not,n'importe pas,the Greek RF is still in very high esteem among their equals as well as the people in Europe.
There's no island in Greece that can hold so many,let alone securitywise.Except Crete maybe,but Crete is not the place for the Greek RF me thinks.Might be just Bayswater's Greek Orthodox Cathedral,nothing wrong with that either. Anyway,there's nothing over a big fat Greek wedding with all the trimmings,and there will be that.Knowing the invited guests all have their quarters reserved way in advance,I just do hope press,or what calls itself that,is aware it has to toy with their own hotel bill when not accredited by any of the major agencies.One can not,for example,bill a "friends" account and think one can get away with that unharmed.Weddings in this spectrum attract all kinds of funny & weird people you know. ;D

we may just see a wedding at the Metropolis in Athens.
Imagine a private family wedding, so that those fools of the republican Government dont have to invite Monarchs.
TM's Elizabeth, Juan, Margette,Beatrice, Grand Duchess Maria, Prince and Princes of Monaco and Hesse, etc etc, all there to celebrate Nick's wedding.

They're family with most of them arent they?

I might ring up some of my relatives to get us all accomodation, any one need any boxing gloves?

I love staying at the Intercontinental. Hotel The views from the rooftop restaurant/bar are phenomenal. Queen Sophie of Spain has also stayed there several times...and it is not too bad a walk from there to Syntagma, the Acropolis and Plaka...besides the hotel offers a free shuttle service if one does not want to do the walk.

Walking around European cities is a true joy...one can find real treasures, as well as great photo opportunities, get a true feel for the city's ambiance and a little exercise which is an added convenience.

The first time I visited Greece more than two decades ago I stayed in a small hotel in Plaka...great location, but far too basic...I lasted two nights there, the noise wass overwhelming and the partying students far too obtrusive...instead I went to the Hilton. Spoiled brat!

The Hilton is much closer to the Syntagma/Plaka area and also has lovely views (one side of the building looks toward the Acropolis, the other side looks away from the city and on to Lycabetos hill.) But I have ot stayed there since it was refurbished in preparation for the Olympic Games.

Many intersting people stay there reguarly, including TM's and HRH Crown Prince Alexander whenever he is in Athens, which is probably 5-6 times a year!

Hi,

Personally, I'd love to see Nicholas & Tatiana marry in Athens...
Since he was cheated out of being born in the country, it would be quite a coup & a good snub in the face to those republican idiots to marry there and invite most of European Royalty to the event.

Arturo & John -
I like the Grande Bretagne too;  although I haven't stayed there in years.
Love the rooftop restaurant atop the Intercontinental too!!  Marvellous view and great service...

If we are talking about restaurants and hotels in Greece............

Many years ago, in 1991, when I was still in the army here in Oz, I was involved in a small way for  the preparations for the commemoration of the 50th anniversary for the batttle of Crete.

Tha Australian Army sent over 150 soldiers to Athens and then Crete to parade, mount guard and basically honour the fallen.
Prior to the main contigent arriving, the 2nd Secretary of the Aussie Embassy,a full colonel, myself and the colonels wife, spent a day touring parts of Athens and the Temple of Poseidon outside of Athens.
We had lunch at a seaside taverna.
My goodness, I will never forget that meal, everything was laid on,including oven roasted kid(baby goat).
If I ever find that taverna again, i'll buy it!!

Post by: Naslednik Norvezhskiy on January 22, 2010, 02:56:38 AM
Some more obscure information on the bride's ancestry:

Tatiana Blatnik is the maternal granddaughter of Ellinka, born Countess of Einsiedel. Ellinka's 4x great grandfather was Count Ditlev Reventlow, the tutor of mad King Christian VII of Denmark. With his harsh manner he failed to give the poor Christian the upbringing he needed, or alternatively, failed to make himself so beloved by his charge that he obtained lasting influence over him.

As we know, that influence was obtained by Dr. Struensee, who through, Louise, la petite Struensee, Duchess of Augustenburg, his natural daughter with Christian VII's tragic Queen Caroline Mathilde, is an ancestor of Tatiana's fiancé Prince Nikolaos! Certainly the descendants of two powerful influences on the mad Christian VII are to be united in marriage.

That will have to do while we eagerly await more unions of Danish devil's spawn:

When the descendants of the arch-traitor Corfitz Ulfeldt and his semi-royal morganaut wife Leonora Christina, among them the Swedish Counts Beck-Friis (murdered Swedish premier Olof Palme's wife was one); the Krag-Juel-Vind-Frijs descendants of the daughter of the Danish Richelieu, the disgraced absolutist chancellor Griffenfeld, whose blood now runs through most of the higher Danish nobility and the royal descendants of Strueensee, who as Augustenburgs also became traitors to Denmark - when they marry each other, and as far as I can see they still haven't, their offspring will certainly be a rotten apple in the state of Denmark!
Title: Re: Prince Nikolaos of Greece and his wife Tatiana
Post by: Ilias_of_John on January 22, 2010, 03:51:27 AM
the last comment.....
 "their offspring will certainly be a rotten apple in the state of Denmark!"
seems to me to be extremely rude and inappropriate.
I only hope that the language you originally wrote it in, was mistranslated when you "babel fished" it.
If however,
YOU ACTUALLY MEAN IT!!!!!!!

It is nothing more than the highest level of rudeness and loathing.
To criticise an as yet not conceived child or children,  let alone the future marriage of a Greek Prince, and to do it publicly and in such bad language beggars belief.......

I do not know what your problem is with either Nikolaos or Tatiana,or their families,  nor do I want to, but I would advise you to treat this forum with respect, and when you do discuss members of any Royal Family, to do it with decorum and some sort of humanity.


Title: Re: Prince Nikolaos of Greece and his wife Tatiana
Post by: Naslednik Norvezhskiy on January 22, 2010, 04:26:07 AM
Ilias of John!
If you read my post more carefully, you will see that the term "rotten apple in the state of Denmark" was not applied to any future offspring of Prince Nikolaos and his fiancée, but to any offspring of unions that unite the lines of "bad guys" in the royal history of Danmark: Corfitz Ulfeldt, Griffenfeld and Struensee.

Though I can see how people might be offended by the line "That [i.e. Tatiana and Nikolaos' engagement] will have to do while we eagerly await more unions of Danish devil's spawn:". If so, I apologize. I didn't think anybody would read it literally. The idea that children are "devil's spawn" or "rotten apples" just because their 10x-great grandfathers were shady royal favourites or traitors is of course just as far-fetched as the fact that Ms. Blatnik's descent from the "Blood Countess" Erzsebet Báthory should have any significance for her actual character. I thought everybody would understand that it's purely academic and only of historical interest.
Title: Re: Prince Nikolaos of Greece and his wife Tatiana
Post by: Eric_Lowe on January 22, 2010, 11:35:17 AM
I am offended. To me the Danish Royal Family is one of the best and most in tune in modern society. They (Glucksborgs--both Danish & Greek lines) were the first to invite morganetic families & even commoners into their ranks. The list reads like a who's who in history (Marie Bonaparte (friend & benifector of Freud), Alice Battenberg ( acting nun and rescuers of Jews in WW II), Eleanor Green (American, wife of Prince Viggo) and the latest Alexandra Manley (now divorced and Countess of Frederiksborg), the first European Princess to have Asian blood). So I don't see the rotten apple or devil's spawn...

Řh...perhaps because they don't exist yet? My speculative, not-meant-to-be-taken-too-serious pet theory was after all that they would be the products of unions between the descendants of Ulfeldt, Griffenfeld and Struensee, bloodlines which haven't intermarried yet, as far as I can see.

OK, I think we can move on now. The mods received several complaints about the postings. I haven't received any indication that they are to removed so they stay. It is the FA's stated policy that comments about living royals be respectful in tone. I don't believe that Tainyi sovetnik meant any disrespect to any royals, living or dead, and was rather making a point about some unsavory characters in the past and the possibilty of them one day having a common descendant--if I myself have misinterpreted this, feel free to correct me. I think it's pretty clear Tainyi sovetnik was NOT referring to any members of the Danish/Greek royal family so no need to list their virtues.  I'll admit I was rather confused by the postings but I think I have the gist of it. I think the point of the posts has been made and, since it has apparently been open to (mis)interpretation, I think that it is best to move on to discussing the actual topic of the marriage and its participants.

being a greek myself I have to say that it's not considered a nice auspice to comment like that on two people who are about to get married.

Oh Eric,
He is more than 6.3" tall and 40 years old.
He is entitled to a little bit of middle age spread isnt he?
Please say YES,or else I will have to start running again!!!!!

Anyway, they are a nice couple!

Yes.

It only showed because Nicholas used to be such a golden youth (the glitter faded a bit, but still a very striking looking man) and big brother Pavlos remained in good shape.  ;)

She is very beautiful and he is alucky man.

Best Wishes for them both.  :)

Amen to that ! It is clear where Tatiana inherited her looks from, his father (looks and still attractive) and blonde locks from her mother. She would be agreat addition to the Greek Royal Family (and to Point & Hola...).

Post by: Ilias_of_John on February 05, 2010, 10:37:30 PM
Er Eric.........
That is her stepfather!
Apparently her father is no longer alive.

Something that Roimat who attended the press conference posted on the following on the Royal Forums, his English not mine, I think he did a very good job!
(Hint hint A.M)


 "Tatiana Elinga Blatnik was born in Venezuela and grow up in Switzerland. Her father, Ladislav Blatnik was Slovenian and her mother, Mari-Blance Bierlein is German, married to Mr Attilio Brigienburg.
Tatiana has 4 brothers: Boris, Igor and Anouska Blatnik and a step brother, Attilio Brigienburg. She graduated from Georgetown University with a diploma at Sociology. She works for the P.R. of the Diane Von Furstenberg House of Fashion"

I also noticed that she will be baptised prior to the wedding, by no less than the Greek Orthodox Archbishop of Great Britain.
Title: Re: Prince Nikolaos of Greece and his wife Tatiana
Post by: Eric_Lowe on February 06, 2010, 02:01:58 PM
Oh she works for Diane Von Furstenberg ! No wonder she looked so stylish. Yes. The rites are beautiful in the Greek Church. Although I don't think she need to do the naked in the barrel ceremony.
Title: Re: Prince Nikolaos of Greece and his wife Tatiana
Post by: Ilias_of_John on February 06, 2010, 02:22:00 PM
Adults dont get "naked in a barrel" as you put it Eric.

They are fully dressed, but they are fully immersed
Title: Re: Prince Nikolaos of Greece and his wife Tatiana
Post by: Eric_Lowe on February 06, 2010, 02:39:55 PM
It is a joke !  :) When I was accepted into the Greek Church, they told me I have to be naked in the barrel and immensed in water. In actual fact I do not need to because I was already baptised in the rites of the Trinity. I was confirmed in holy oil instead. By being Baptised, It means that Tatiana wasn't baptised before in any church.

Post by: mjl1786 on May 23, 2010, 01:45:28 PM
I wonder what Ms. Blatnik's title will be after they get married. It seems that most modern royal marriages have thrown off the tradition of the wife accepting her husband's title ("Princess Andrew", "Princess Nicholas", etc.) and instead more and more royal wives are referred to as being a princess in her own right (Prince Joachim of Denmark's wife goes by Princess Marie, not Princess Joachim). So I wonder if they will refer to her as "Princess Tatiana of Greece" or "Princess Nikolaos of Greece". On the royal family's official website they have Marie-Chantal as "Crown Princess Pavlos", so perhaps they will do the same for Ms. Blatnik.

Officially, It will be Princess Nikolaos of Greece,
Howver, if she is Christened in the Church as Tatiana, or given another baptisimal name, many may call her Princess Tatiana, or Heleni, or Irini, or Sophia, etc etc etc

 A Greek gossip magazine, is reporting that the Mayor of Spetses is saying either the 25th of August or early September, and that all the relatives are coming including Queen Elizabeth II of Australia.

Oh, also Elton John is supposed to be playing/singing etc etc.
That will really be accepted in financially devasted Greece.

There are actually 2 fines totralling 440 OOO Euro's
.
The fine has officially been given to the lamdowner of the property rather than the King.
The pltaform was up for some 5 weeks prior to the wedding yet the fine was only issued after the wedding and the fine was dismantled.
It is a deliberate attack on the King, his family and the good people of Spetses who are furious.
The politician is a know hater of the GRF, and he issued the fine knowing full well that the the Greek Police, various ministries, the Greek Secret Service and many other official bodies had authorised the function, the stage and where at the wedding.
His Majesty, although not being the official recipient of the fine,will vigorously defend and assist the landowner.

Were the Michaels of Kent the only members of the Windsor Clan to attend the wedding of the Nicholases? Lovely to see them there! But I was curious as to why the Wessexes weren't invited or did they decline to attend?! The Wessexes are usually the Windsor Wedding guest fodder at European Royal Weddings aren't they, or is that only when the wedding is within a Ruling Royal House?!

I think the second arguement holds water in this case. Eddie & Sophie Wessex would most likely attend the Monaco wedding next year.

Can anyone tell me were there any noble relations of the bride present?After all her grandmother Countess Ellinka Karin Hariet von Einsedel is still alive...

Her nearest noble cousins from her grandmothers side include Counts von Einsedel,Counts von Lehndorff,Counts von Westarp,Counts von Dönhoff,Barons von Plotho and noble families like von Alvensleben and so on...

my guess would simply be because HRH Prince Michael's Mother was HRH Princes Marina of Greece, Duchess of Kent.  Prince Michael being 1/2 greek so to speak, IMO would be a better represenative

It may have something to do with Prince Phillip vowing to never return to Greece until the Monarchy has been restored.
Perhaps its one of those vows that travel generations?
And before anyone says anything, Mt Athos is not included in this point

I didn't know where to put this as Nikolaos and Tatiana doesn't have thread of their own, so I'm just gonna put it here (apologizes to the mods if it's putted the wrong place or if I've over-seen a N/T thread).

Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana are expecting their first child, there is no official source confirming it but according to the Danish magazine Billed-Bladet, a 10th grandchild is on the way for Constantine and Anne-Marie.
