Genetics is an ugly argument that is a little too close to Final Solution nonsense. The history of the world is one of movement and immigration. Constantine surely is Greek. Is there any word on him or are they just at their house all the time since he is older and having health issues?

ITA.

I will also say that culture plays a big part in who you are and in no way or shape instead Constantine or the children Danish. Certainly their mother is but she clearly brought up her children aligned with her husbandís cultural background and it shows. They have Danish ancestry obviously but they arenít Danish.

Itís a bit like people calling Charles a German because he speaks German in Germany.

In 1832 Prince Otto of Bavaria was chosen King of Greece by the Three Protecting Powers of England, France, and Russia. They chose outside of their own families to try and avoid conflict between each other.

In 1862 King Otto and Queen Amalia took refuge on a British warship. They returned to Bavaria. They took with them the Greek royal regalia which had been brought from Bavaria in 1832.

Athens, circa 1887.
Royal family photograph.

Shot taken by the photographer Petros Moraitis, born in Tinos island. He gained access in the royal family through his marriage with the daughter of the German baroness Perl.



It seems that it's been signed by some of the members of the royal family.
We can read, from left to right, the names: Nikolaos (Νικόλαος), Maria (Μαρία), Olga (Όλγα), Konstantinos (Κωνσταντίνος), Alexandra (Αλεξάνδρα), George (Γεώργιος)
