Prince Christopher of Greece and Denmark (10 August 1888 – 21 January 1940)
Christopher was born at Pavlovsk, Imperial Russia, son of King George I of Greece and Queen Olga, a Russian grand duchess by birth.
On 1 January 1920, Christopher married a very wealthy American widow, Nonnie May "Nancy" Stewart Worthington Leeds, at Vevey, Switzerland.
Shortly after their marriage, Princess Anastasia developed cancer, and died in London on 29 August 1923, leaving no children from this marriage. Prince Christopher did, however, have a stepson, William Bateman Leeds Jr (1902–1971), who had, in 1921, married Princess Xenia Georgievna of Russia.
Prince Christopher later remarried; his second wife was Princess Françoise of Orléans.
The couple were married in 1929 in Palermo, Italy; the civil ceremony was on 10 February, and the religious one on 11 February.
They were childless for a decade, then one child was born to Françoise: Prince Michael of Greece and Denmark was born in Rome in 1939, shortly before Prince Christopher's death.
Prince Christopher of Greece died in Athens on 21 January 1940, aged 51.
