In Munich, German Catholics and Greek Orthodox prayed "for the repose" of the soul of the King Otto (Othon) of the anniversary of his death on 26 July

I'd forgotten that Otto of Greece was Roman Catholic and wife was Lutheran.
Neither converted to Greek Orthodoxy.

An error in historical interpretation. They were King and Queen of Greece (at that time Greece was smaller, Athens, the Peloponnese...) and indeed, neither of them assumed the orthodox religion.
Thus they never reigned in Thessalonika, Ioannina..., and neither in Crete, nor in the Ionian Islands... Otto would not be King of current Greece, but of a much smaller territory, subject to a protectorate of the three great powers. He and Amalia were not orthodox
