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)

Queen Olga was the only member of the Greek Royal Family to be given a pension by the Republican government during the Royal Family's exile.

I didn't know!

A few years back, in my uni's library, I had noticed a book about Queen Olga. I don't remember details as I haven't read it thoghouly but she was described as a very kind and very generous person. Of course, it was written years back, during the 50s', if I remember correctly, by a woman who had benefited from her.

Wasn't she also the only one allowed to stay in the country (and was made regent once?)?

Honestly, I have no knowledge on monarchy in Greece, only general information. Maybe Cyril knows more on this matter.

Apparently she was loved and popular in Greece, a.o. due to her charity work.

When reading info about her I think she married a bit young but was a very likeable, loving person. Wasn't she also the favorite sister in law of Alexandra, Dagmar and Thyra?

Yes, after the tragic sudden death of King Alexander, Queen Olga was made Regent until King Constantine I could come home from his exile in Switzerland.  The Greek government had a lot of respect for Olga.
