You have not stated the purpose of your demands and you do not seem to be thankful for any contributions!
Be this as it may, if you are compiling anything on the life of Constantine II of Greece, DO NOT forget to touch upon his illegitimate sister(s)--his father's contribution to... family size.

Don't assume that everything is on the web.  You may actually need to close down the computer, and get to a library, and start looking through books and newspaper indexes.  You may have to write to archives, or even use a Freedom of Information form to get information from the National Archives here in the USA -- 'cause the US played a role in bringing down the monarchy.   You might want to read George Tantzos' bio on Constantine II, which includes copies of some documents ... you might want to check the microfilm for the major papers - starting with the NYTimes.

Excellent question.  Do the Greek RF still have possession of Queen Olg'a Russian jewels?

It is my uderstanding her "trosseau" jewels brought to Greece from Russia was quite a "Bag of Loot".

Constantine has been back to Greece a number of times since he first left (he was at the Olympics in Athens last August, for instance), so he had more than one opportunity to gather his personal possessions.  Also, four years ago he sued for compensation for his properties in Greece and won his case.  I wonder what the present feeling is in Greece toward the former king.  Is he allowed, for instance, to visit the graves of his parents?  At one point, this was denied him.  My main source of information is the Athens News, but I haven't seen anything since last summer.

This is incredible news, Frederika.  I recently came across a quote from Constantine which said "exile is a way of life for Greek royalty", but it looks as if somehow that has been resolved for them.  You are a real treasure of information.

The personal possessions were returned to him about 12 years ago, in the early 1990s, when then Prime Minister Karamanlis allowed Constantine to pack up all his possessions, mostly in Tatoi and Mon Repos, and ship them to the U.K.

The King may only gain back his greek citizenship if he registers with a local Greek registry office and takes on a surname.
His family currently holds a Danish passport, and he is known as Constantine de Grecia on it. He may return and travel to Greece whenever he likes, as Greece is part of the Schengen Treaty, which allows free passage to any EU member state.

They took away his citizenship based upon an obscure reading of the monarchy constitution, which the Socialist government claimed gave the members of the royal family only priviliged status as Greek citizens, but not actual citizenship.

Iskenderbey, your posting makes me grateful to the EU (even though I wouldn't easily have given up the drachma for the sake of euros), and this information about Constantine is most gratifying.  You obviously have much better sources of information than I.  I've been trying to find these things out for a very long time.  Thank you so much for the information and for the links.

No need for thanks, just passing information that I have or know.

Also, i made a mistake in my post, as the Prime Minister in Greece during early 1990s was Mitsotakis, not Karamanlis.

I would like to know is it possible that the Greek Royal Family will be restored as a reigning family? If it happened to Spain it could be possible!

From what I have read throughout message boards in general, the popular opinion is that the RF will not be reinstated in Greece.  Apparently the people don't care too much for the family and the concept of monarchy anymore.
