I simply can't understand why the greek authorities just don't give it back to Constantine and Anne-Marie, since they obiviously can't decide what to do with it. It's a shame it just being allowed to fall apart.  >:(

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.

When the King was permitted to remove his possesions from Tatoi what "rules" did the Greek government apply? Was someone watching over his sholder the whole time? Was he allowed to take whatever he wanted? Did his family help him? How long did it take? Many thanks. Brent

Actually no such thing...the Greek government sent the King containers to London...they were the ones picking and choosing!

If I can add to what Arturo stated, I read somewhere that the King himself, on his own initiative, asked that officials from the Cultural Ministry be present when the containers were loaded, to make sure that there would be no future claims that he took items which didn't belong to him but to the Greek state.....foretelling, on his part, what he would later be accused of anyway.

Many thanks for the clarification. Was the residence in a  bad sate of repair in 1991 when the goods were sent to the King? How long did they spend packing everything, was lots packed,  and how did the King remenber what was there?

Tatoi should have been returned to CII, as it was a private estate, not settled with a pay out (Which as I understand it went mostly to charity on the good will of CII)

Apparently for the 50 millionth time another Greek cultural minister is saying that Tatoi will be a museum...and the saga continues...somewhere on this board I am sure you will find a post of mine saying that this would never happen..plenty of guarantees,,but no actions...

A museum of or for what? Certainly not the monarchy, with the current government.

Yes a museum of the monarchy, containing all the personal items of the former royal family still remaining within the crumbling palace.  Mind you that the current government is right wing, and would pay mind to its more monarchist electorate with elections only a few months away...especially with the danger of a extreme right wing party electing members to parliament next year..

I am, gobsmacked! Considering all that has been sold and or taken away, what is there left to display?

From what I understand there are still some objects of minimal intrisic value there.The whole reason why this issue has crept up again is for the fact that there is an election coming up and the current govt. is trying to shore up right wing votes.The serious point is how can you have a cultural museum  displaying objects of art when the goverment has systematically gone about destroying and denying the heritage and culture of Greece that this very building represents?
