Based on a photo. I think she was 16 when she married right ? The photo/print was done around this period.

Yes--since it still indicates her title as Grand Duchess of Russia and not Queen of the Hellenes.

Indeed. She also made an impression on Queen Victoria, when she visited Windsor with her mother.

Hi,

Coryne Hall has a wonderful article in "Majesty" magazine this month on George I.
He was assassinated on March 18th, 1913 - one hundred years ago.  And, this article commemorates that horrible event, as well as giving us the story of his life.

When would that be? Any references? I find it so very interesting!

The first modern olympic games, Athens 1896, in remake! We can see George and Olga, King and Queen of Greece at the time ...

It was in Queen Victoria's letters and also in the book "The Grand Duchesses". The visit was in 1861 and Olga was only 10. Queen Victoroa marked her as a possible bride for her son Alfred, who married another grand duchess.

I found this image in Facebook and the comment is that the princes are carrying King George's I coffin in Thessaloniki in 1913. Do you think we can recognize any of them? It seems to me the tall prince in the right could be young George (later King George II) but I wouldn't be sure.

I have this card and I believe that it is  Prince Andrew on the right and either George II or Alexander I on the left.

In a TV documentary on the history of Tatoi on the NERIT (the new official public TV channel), it was mentioned that Queen Alexandra advised her brother King George I og Greece to abdicate and retire in England. It was the first time I heard something like that! Does anyone know something on this, perhaps? Had he accepted her offer his life would probably be safe and he would be a valuable advisor to hia son in the troubled times that were to follow the Balkan wars ...
