GREECE














The members of this family bear the title Prince[ss] of Greece and Denmark, Royal Highness. They still bear the Danish title because King George I never renounced his rights to the Danish throne when he assumed the Greek one, though he did defer his succession rights and agreed that his younger brother's would supersede his. What view the Danish Court and government take of the Greeks' use of the Danish titles is not clear. The members of the Greek Royal Family are no longer in the line of succession to the Danish throne, however.

Note: Prince Otto of Bavaria reigned as King of Greece 1832-1862. He can be found in the article Bavaria.
