King of Greece Pávlos (1939)


King of Greece from 1947 until his death.

Pávlos (Paul) was the third son of King Constantine I of Greece and his wife, Princess Sophia of Prussia. He trained as an army officer at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst and later at the Hellenic Military Academy in Kypseli, Athens. Paul was an army officer cadet in the Coldstream Guards and Lieutenant with the Evzones.

From 1917 to 1920, Paul lived in exile with his father, Constantine I. From 1923 to 1935, he lived in exile again in England, this time with his brother, George II. He worked briefly in an aircraft factory under an alias, and through Viscount Tredegar met and befriended notorious literary muse Denham Fouts, who later alleged an affair. As Fout's life is clouded by myth, the truth of this is uncertain.

On 9 January 1938, Paul married Princess Frederica of Hanover, his first cousin once removed (a great-niece of Paul's mother Sophia), at Athens. They had three children.

He died on 6 March 1964, aged 62, in Athens.

Die Kronprinzessin, die Schwester des Kaisers Wilhelm, wurde heute nachmittag von einem Prinzen entbunden." (Athens, December 14th. The Crown Princess, the sister of Emperor Wilhelm, was delivered this afternoon of a prince). A time of 3pm is speculative.
