I was watching Australian SBS Greek news this morning and saw footage of Tatoi...I dont speak Greek and couldn't find my dad, who's Greek, so I cant say what they were reporting on, however it must have been something important regarding the estate since its an internationally aired Greek news program.

I donīt think greek politicians realy wand Tatoi to be restored. Theyīve learn to hate their history,because they donīt like monarchy. Iīm a greek royalist and iīve 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.

I am interested in finding out the number of rooms of any of the Royal Residences. If anyone has any information please post it.

*Old Royal Palace (Current Parliament Building)- 365 rooms as of 1863

*New Royal Palace (Crown Prince's Palace/ Presidential Residence)

*Villa Mon Repos (Corfu)

*Tatoi (countryside outside Athens)

*Psychico (Athens)

Feel free to add more of residences
In the future, people will not say that the Greeks fought like heros. but rather that heros fight like Greeks...

Well,it was very very cold,actually,because it was snowing!!!It was a family gathering, with all the Greek Royal Family present and Quenn Sofia of Spain,her sister Irini, prince Felipe, princess Letizia and both the Infantas!There were also former workers at the Tatoi Palace and former officers. It was very nice!

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.

Very interesting....

I wonder if there is actually any treasure buried there?  As many times as the Royal Family had to flee, it seems possible.  And one of the suspects was an officer there, maybe he had inside information....

Tatoi is in a state of utter and total disrepair.  If you google Tatoi you will see recent pictures on different sites.

The government is planning various things on the land.  Turning the main house into a guest house for foreign VIPS, museums, and different cultural parks, etc.

If that happens, may I change my name to Ataxerxes!
