Wonderful photo of father and daughter! Alexandra looks very much like her mother  Olga there.

The picture ID was George and Olga ca. 1900, but I thought it looked like Alexandra and definitely not around 1900.

Queen Olga with daughter Marie and her 2nd husband Perikles Ioannides.



I wonder - are there earrings/pearls in Perikles'ears? )

Queen Olga and Princess Alexandra of Wales in 1877



These "umbrella" photos were really quite fashionable that period.

well, it seems nothing will make greek people thinking a bit more kindly of their past kings (
yesterday I heard another kind remark on king George I: that is was his selling a great amount of stocks in the stock market that brought greece in the arms of the IMF for the first time in 1898!
the person who told me so, and apparently heard it on TV, is an MD and seemed someone who would normally be able to remember at least a few important facts in recent greek history, such as a lost greek-turkey war. yet, when I mentioned that to me it seemed highly insignificant what the king might have done with his own stocks vs a lost war, he didn't seem to even thing about it even for a moment. to him it was certainly the king who made us go in bankrupt!

I feel so sad to see what people know and are able to understand of their own country's history(

They have been brainwashed to believe the worst. While I don't think the Ex-King is a saint, I do not believe what the government is trying to make him up to be.

was it Queen Olga who used to say she'd prefer a country ruled by one lion of pedigree than 100 mice?

I can't remember anymore!

Yes. Yet she was the only Queen that was beloved by the Greek people. One miust also remember she was the niece of the autocrat of Russia.
