    George I of Greece From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    George I (December 24, 1845 - March 18, 1913) was king of G reece from 1863 to 1913

    He was born in Copenhagen, the second son of King Christia n IX of Denmark and the brother of Alexandra of Denmark (co nsort of King Edward VII of the United Kingdom). He began h is career in the Danish navy, and was elected King of Greec e on March 30, 1863 following the deposition of King Otto.

    The new king, now only 17 years old, quickly learned Gree k in addition to his native Danish. During a trip to Russi a to meet with his sister Dagmar (consort to Tsar Alexande r III) he met Grand Duchess Olga, cousin of the Tsar, and f ell in love. They married in 1867.

    Together they had eight children: 1. Constantine (1868-1923 ), future king 2. Alexandria (1870-1891) 3. George (1869-19 57) 4. Nicholas (1872-1938) 5. Mary (1876-1940) 6. Andrew ( 1882-1944) 7. Christopher (1888-1940) 8. Olga (died when th ree months old)

    When alone with his wife, he usually conversed in German. T heir children were taught English by their nannies, and whe n talking with his children he therefore spoke mainly Engli sh.

    He ruled Greece with some success, overseeing the consolida tion of Greek rule over Thessaly and Epirus and the puttin g down of rebellion in Crete. However, following the Balka n War which began in 1912, he was assassinated at Salonika.
