Which law are you referring to? Princess Yriny became Diadoch in March 1964 because Constantine was unmarried and had no issue at the time. He married Anne-Marie 6 months later and Alexia was born in mid-1965 at which point, she became the Heir, until the birth of Paul.

In the video is two proclamations, not a single "proclamations" , the first proclamation of Constantine as King and the second, Princess Irene like heir , all that was accepted by government decree, it is given preference to the offspring closer to the last king regardless of whether it is male or female, . and thus exclude the preference of men in absolute terms which excluded women from Reign,novelty is that it has written decree, which is law. This delimitation of the succession law, establishing preference to the descendants of the last king, regardless of whether they were men or women,was happening in other countries in Europe. Princess Irene was a woman, she for one year and four months was heir to the throne of Greece.

Not only for violists...the award is about young artists who live away from the urban cities, in the country, and is about all kind of artists, pianists, etc.

These are wonderful pictures, thank you for posting them, Beltraneja! They must have really enjoyed themselves, the place is wonderful and I'm sure they enjoy each other's company, being the "intellectual" ones of the family ;-)

Yes, Michel is the historian of the family, and knows Greece better than anyone. He didn't left Greece after the 1967 coup, but only after the 1974 referendum. But even after that, he was the only member of the GRF that was visiting Greece during the 70's, 80's and 90's, and also has a house in Patmos Island:-)

She speaks fluent Spanish, she has a voice very similar to Princess Alexia, but fluent in Spanish, I've seen on television in Spain , when the Prince Philip married. The journalists asked to her, and she spoke very good Spanish.

Did HRH Princess Irene ever marry? Does she have any children? Does she live in Spain or elsewhere? Also, exactly how is Prince Michael related to Constantine, Sofia, and Irene? Is he a prince of Greece or of another country? Any other information on Prince Michael or Princess Irene would be appreciated. Just curious - I only realized these two people existed after reading GRF and Spain's royal family's forums on this website.

Irene never married and never had any children. She mostly lives in Spain. I think Prince Michael of Greece is a first cousin to the three siblings.

Irene and her siblings are first cousins once removed of Prince Michael; their grandfather King Constantine I and Michael's father were brothers.

Prince Michael is the son of Prince Christopher who was the son of the first king of the dynasty, King George and Queen Olga. Christopher and King Constantine I were brothers,King Paul and Prince Michael of Greece were first cousins, . Miguel is a second cousin of Princess Irene.
