New Book: Greek Princesses

A new book, which was sent to us by a subscriber in Greece, deals with the lives of several Greek princesses, daughters-in-law and granddaughters of King George I of the Hellenes.

I have a copy of the cover, the book is yet to arrive. I know it is only available in Greek, but am hoping that it at least has lovely photos inside.

The women of the Greek royal family have always been a fantastic group of people. As friend of many of the descendants of King George's Greek granddaughters, I have always wanted to write a group biography of these ladies: Queen Mother Helen of Romania, the Duchess of Aosta, Lady Katerine Brandram, Princess Eugenie of Greece, Princess Paul of Yugoslavia, Countess Elisabeth zu Toerring-Jettenbach, The Duchess of Kent, Fürstin Margarita zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg, Margravine Theodora of Baden, Hereditary Grand Duchess Cecilie of Hesse and by Rhine and Princess Sophie of Hannover.

Perhaps this new book can encourage me to get mine done!

  1. This makes me won't to learn how to read Greek. No mention of the Russian grand-daughters of King George I.
    Arturo, I have said it once before either you or Marlene need to do a book on all these women.
    Your family is growing by leaps & bounds, however will you find the time. :)
    I have faith in you, that you will pull off the untaking.
