I just like to say that the wedding didn't take place at St Denis Cathedral, but at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Athens. St Denis is the Romeocatholic Cathedral in Athens, and in that church took place the wedding of princess Sophia to prince Juan Carlos.

The Greek Royal Family / Re: Prince Michael of Greece
« on: December 05, 2006, 09:31:35 AM »
I've met personaly prince Michael, here in Athens. he is a very interesting personality, with a great sence of humor, and propably the most intelectual royal person i know. Just for the history, he was the only member of the Greek Royal Family that stayd in Greece after the army's coup in 1967, and the only member of the family that could visit Greece after the referendum, when King Constantine has his argument with the Greek State about his property. Prince Michael could freely come to Greece, propably because he is a low profile man anyway, but also because of his french passport, wich perimited him to travel as ''Michel De Grece''. When Prince Michael married the greek painter Marina Karela, in 1965, he resigned from his rigths to the Greek Throne, but his two daughters, Alexandra and Olga, are prinsess.

The Greek Royal Family / Re: Auction of Greek royal items
« on: December 05, 2006, 09:07:32 AM »


To be honest, at their site, the Greek Royal Family say that some of the items were them,but they are just leting everyone to undertand that they sold them since 1991, when they were carried away from Tatoi Palace, with the permision of the Greek government. Since then,the object were at big containers at an english harbour. Propably the cost of keeping them was big, and the Royal Family was forced to sale some items. But not to Christie's. So,my opinion, to be fair enougth, is that the items that are going to be sold from Christies, were sold previously by thw Greek Royal Family. But now, the owner is someone else...I don't see nothing wrong with that, considering that all the Greek Governments want to ignore in purpose the ROyal History of Greece. So it's hipocritic the interest and the accusations that ''the ex is selling our history''!

Dear Friends
Please go to www.greekroyalfamily.gr, th official site of the Greek Royal Family. there you'll find a full answer about that. Just to inform you, the Greek Royal Family is NOT the owner of the items that are going to be sold at Christie's. The DT is just playing Christie's game, to atract the public interest...

Thank you so much, and yes, we will be looking forward to the photographs.  Did you find it very delapidated? What is it now, a museum?

As i've been visiting Tatoi for over a decade, i have to say that eneryone who is interested,can visit also. You can visit the cemetary free, it is at about 2klm away from the Palace. Ofcourse, every building there is abandoned and the State isn't realy interested for anything that has to do with the Royal Family!Only last year they saw some interest to cound what is inside the Palace,but nothing is certain yet. As for the Palace,it is closed and visitors can only see it from outside.

No,there is no permition needed for that!Thanks god, the Greek politicians may be what they are...but they respect a man that wants to go to his mother and father graves. King Constantine goes to the graves of his ancestors free, and he is treated well by the police force which is there.

The names 创Komninos创, 创Katakouzinos创 and 创Palaiologos创 are very comon surnames in Greece.But i don磘 think any of them are decentens of thw Visantinum Royal Families. A legend says that the Greek Royal Family has its root at the last Emperor of Vezantium, because his baby son, Ioannis, was saved by his mother after the Othomans took Constantinople in 1453. Then, both boy and mother went to France, and Ioannis later married the daughter of the Danish king. It磗 to hard to believe it, but a legent is always a legent...!!

Dear Friends,
It磗 not that in Greece people like or don磘 like monarchy. It磗 that the Constitution forbites any change of the State, from Presidential Republic to Contitutional Monarchy. That磗 our...创democrachy创. As for the rest of your questions, the Greek Royal Family stays at the 创Grand Bretagne创 Hotel, when they visit Greece. They have alway a worm welcome from almost everyone who meets them at streets or anywere. Even anti-royalists have no problem anymore, because they are not afraid of a restoration. Contantine himself, also, have no doupts about it anymore...

Queen Anne Marie is popular too, but she stay only 3 years to Greece, so we must mot compaire with Quenn Frederika. Frederika was so popular,because she stant by the people who were suffering during the Greek Sivil War, and she was so supportive to the Greek soldiers. Many oponents say that she like to interfier to the political life of Greece. But none can realy interfier to the politics,unless you let him or her doing it. If greek polititians like to patronise Quenn Frederika and always ask from her to be political, so don磘 blaim her, blaim them!

Both the Greek Royal family and Prime Minister Venizelos where against Alexander to marry a commoner. So Alexander did married Aspasia in one of his friends house, secretly. When Aspasia got pregnant, the royalist part and exiled king Constantine was afraid of a boy child,which Venizelos may claim that he-the boy-is the legal succesor of his dead father. After the girl was born, King Constantine, who already been back to Greece, named Aspasia and her newborn child, Alexandra, both as 创princess of Greece创. He was reliefed :-))

I don磘 think greek politicians realy wand Tatoi to be restored. They磛e learn to hate their history,because they don磘 like monarchy. I磎 a greek royalist and i磛e been to Tatoi several times, even at February 6th, when a comemorasion service was fiven there for the 25th aniverasarry of the death of Quenn Frederica.
