I wanted to buy a copy too until I saw I could get it at the NYPL at midtown unfortunnalty it was a 'refrence book so I coundn't take it out but had to stay and read it at the table . It only took me less than 2 hours and I'm not a speed reader ! She dosen't really give any "meat n potato" information very fluffy cute antidotes liek the how she didn't know she was pregnant and how the crowd at Totoi started to call out "Sofia" (they had wanted her to be called Olga) I think part of the problem was that at the time the book was written they were problems with the new incoming greek goverment . She does go on about her husband (King Paul) and her kids, Sofia was the apple of her eye and they were a close family. She also mentiond Constantine's win on the sailing event ( I get the nagging suspicion it was fixed )it was a bit odd she said he practised with a boat he got as a 18th birthday gift from the greek Navy but had no one to sail agaist so he had no idea how good (or bad) he was until he came up against the italian (no name) and suddenly tra la la won ?! She also mentioned to him at a lunch at the yacht club that she didn't want this to be a dominant event in his life and he agreed but in interviews and when he was on Larry King"about a 1/12 ago it HAS become a Major achivement and he loves to remind anybody about it I won't be surprised when the Olympics opening ceremony he will wear his medal and a t-shirt with the slogan I won and I'm a King of Greece!

If you want something a bit heavier, try "No Ordinary Crown" (IIRC, that's the title). It's the biography on Fredericka's husband, Paul I.

Thank you, Lyonnaise for those pictures. The Greek royal family is also my favourite one.
There were three pictures I had not seen earlier, thanks for posting them.
I collect pictures of the little yonger generation as queen Friederike. That means pictures of the family of queen Anne Marie and king Konstantin.

Agamemnon cruise ,was the beggining of the Tourism Era for Greece.Right after ,the end of it Greece was enlisted in world tourstic map as an International Touristic Destination .In plain english- this means money from air,sea,sant,also a steady project wich lasted for years,made the islanders from poor peasants millioners!!That is a personal achievment and offer of their Majesties King Pavlos and Queen Frederike to the Greek People!!

I believe Queen Fredericka was hated due to her German heritage and her forceful personality. It help cost her son Constantine the crown of Greece, but then again, Greece was never a stable monarchial country. Fredericka's daughter became Queen of Spain, the present Queen Sofia.

I don't think Fredericka was a Nazi just because she was German. I am of German descent and I am sure as heck NOT A NAZI!!! My German grandfather fought for the United States in World War II and landed on the beach at Normandy on DDay. He received the Fleur de Lys from the French Government. He also helped liberate Auschwitz. A German man did all of that and he was my Grandfather and I loved him very much!!

I am constantly telling people that many, many Germans were not Nazis. It is a falsehood that created hatred to all Germans. Many Germans in Germany hid and helped Jews (as well as Polish) to escape persecution. This would be a wonderful world when we as the Human Race stop persecuting people because of their color and or nationality.

She died while having opthalmic surgery. I think she had a heart attack. Too sad for her family, age 64 is fairly young.

She and her older 2 children (Sofia and Constantine) fled Greece during the Nazi invasion. Later, they moved on to South Africa, where Princess Irene was born.

What I have listened at some time is that she died for some complication after an operation of cosmetic surgery. I believe that I listened to it in some program on the life of the Prince Felipe, because the death of his grandmother marked him enough, he was still small and had had to remain in Madrid studying while the family had gone away to some place, and was only when they gave to him the news.

It was some kind of eye surgery, actually.

I've always read that she was having the skin around her eyes tightened or something, but it's always been described as cosmetic.

I think that's Jan Smuts (the older gentleman) with the family. He was Irene's godfather since she was born in South Africa.

HM Queen Frederica

In many of Queen Frederica's photos, one finds her smiling or in a jovial mood. She must have been a happy character. She must have also been immensely generous, especially after reading about the thousands of orphaned and poor children she helped during the Greek Civil War and how, together with the King, worked tirelessly for Greece.
Bless her soul....
