From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In 1863, the 17-year-old Prince William of Denmark was elected as King of the Hellenes (Greece). King George I, as he came to be known, was the son of Louise of Hesse-Cassel and King Christian IX of Denmark, who himself had been elected heir to the throne upon the extinction of the main royal line. George I's wife Queen Olga was Russian; however, like most modern European monarchs, both monarchs were descended from Greek rulers of the Byzantine Empire.
