Hi, I am new in this forum and I am interested in Prince Michael's family.

Does anybody (maybe Iakynthi) know anything about Marina Karella's family?

1) What about her father Theodore (or Theodoros)? His surname is Karella or KarellaS?
I know he was an industrialist... but the founder of the fortune was his father who was a textile mill owner according to Wikipedia (that cites The New York Times, 8 February 1965, page 3). Does anybody know his name and his place of birth?

2) Is Elly Chalikiopoulos anyhow related to the (Italo-)Greek musician Nikolaos Chalikiopoulos Mantzaros (also spelled Nikolaos Halikiopoulos Mantzaros, Νικόλαος Χαλικιόπουλος Μάντζαρος or Niccoló Calichiopulo Manzaro, 1795-1872)?

Thank you

I've a question about the youth of Prince Michael: since his father died soon after his birth, and his mother died when he was 14, I wonder who did him take care of?

The Count and Countess de Paris, he was their nephew.

Yes, they are very close... and this raises the following question: why didn't either Prince Michael or Aimone and Olga attend the religious marriage of the Duke of Vendome? This is quite strange, if you consider that no one is more related to the House of Orléans than the above-mentioned couple!

And why nobody of the French relatives attended the wedding of Aimone and Olga?

Were they Orléans at Aymone's wedding ?
Since Madame la Comtesse de Paris's death we never see Prince Michel of Grece at any Orleans celebration, athough when he was young he was considered as the Comte and Comtesse de Paris 's 12 child .
I think I know the reason but I'm not sure , if Vincent is reading this thread I'm sure he will help us more.

Only Claude of Orléans attended his son's wedding. I heard that HRH Amedeo had a bad altercation with his father-in-law, the late Count of Paris about his difficult relation with Claude (which ended in divorce). Maybe this enlightens the detachment of the Orléans from the Savoy-Aosta, even if their blood is more than a half Orléans!

And so you think that the difficulties that Amedeo had with his ex father in law are still existent with the present members of Orleans Family?
It would be strange, since that several members of the Orleans Family had troubles with the relationship with the late Count of Paris...

If you look at Savoy-Aosta invitations and activities, you can see that they have good relations with the King of Romania (Amedeo's first cousin) and with the King and Queen of Spain (the latter is Amedeo's first cousin), and the King of Greece (Amedeo's first cousin). But you cannot find anything about the Orléans, even if Amedeo's grandmother, wife, aunt, and daughter-in-law's grandmother belong to the French Royal family. I recall even an interview in which Amedeo stated that France doesn't need Monarchy, because it already has a strong sense of the state (République).

But why isn't Prince Michael of Greece in contact with his maternal family? this is a mystery to me.

This is a mere conjecture... but I cannot find any other good reason!

In 1998 at the wedding of Alexandra in Venice, were present Beatriz of Orleans and her daughter Adelaida. Beatriz was not in wedding of Olga. This is unusual in Beatriz.

Imageshack - imagen004vzd.jpg

the picture is not good but in it is Queen Sofia , Adelaida and behind her is Beatriz, she does not see good.

it is the wedding in Venice.

Yes, he's indeed the son of Prince Christopher and his second wife Princess Françoise; and yes, he's indeed grandson of King George I.
About being closer to the Greek throne, he was the only son of the last son of the first King of Greece (of that House), so he has always been the last in the line of succession to the Throne; btw, he lost his rights by marrying a commoner, Marina Karella, in 1965.
As for your last question, he's a writer, and I think he lives with his own moneys (and I don't think it can be different, especially after the fall of the Greek Monarchy).
