    Constantius II is a particularly difficult figure to judge properly due to the hostility of most sources toward him. A. H. M. Jones writes that Constantius "appears in the pages of Ammianus as a conscientious emperor but a vain and stupid man, an easy prey to flatterers. He was timid and suspicious, and interested persons could easily play on ...

    Con­stan­tine was born at the Psy­chiko Palace in Psy­chiko, a sub­urb of Athens. He was the nephew of King George II, and also the sec­ond child and only le­git­i­mate son of the king's brother and heir pre­sump­tive, Crown Prince Paul. His mother was Princess Fred­er­ica of Hanover. Con­stan­tine's older sis­ter, Queen Sofía of Spain, is the wife of the re­tired King Juan Car­los I of Spain, while his younger sis­ter, Princess Irene, has never been mar­ried. Con­stan­tine was just one year old when Fas­cist Italy and Nazi Ger­many in­vaded Greece, and he spent the next four years in exile in Egypt and Cape Town, South Africa, (where his sis­ter Irene was born) with his fam­ily. He re­turned to Greece with his fam­ily in 1946. King George died in 1947, and Con­stan­tine's fa­ther be­came the new king, mak­ing Con­stan­tine the crown prince. He was ed­u­cated at a prepara­tory school and later a board­ing school (Vic­to­ria Col­lege of Alexan­dria, Egypt, where his class­mates in­cl...

    In March 1964, King Paul died of can­cer, and the 23-year-old Con­stan­tine suc­ceeded him as king. Prior to this, Con­stan­tine had al­ready been ap­pointed as re­gentfor his ail­ing father. King Paul's long-time prime min­is­ter Kon­stan­ti­nos Kara­man­lis re­garded him partly re­spon­si­ble for his fall from lead­er­ship in 1963.[citation needed] How­ever, due to his youth, he was also per­ceived as a promise of change. The ac­ces­sion of Con­stan­tine co­in­cided with the re­cent elec­tion of Cen­trist George Pa­pan­dreou as prime min­is­ter in Feb­ru­ary 1964, which ended 11 years of right-wing rule by the Na­tional Rad­i­cal Union(ERE). Greece was still feel­ing the ef­fects of the Civil Warof 1944–49 be­tween com­mu­nists and monar­chists, and so­ci­ety was strongly po­larised be­tween the roy­al­ist/con­ser­v­a­tive right and the lib­eral/so­cial­ist left. It was hoped that the new young king and the new prime min­is­ter would be able to over­come past dis­sen­sions. Ini­ti...

    Elec­tions were sched­uled for 28 May 1967, with ex­pec­ta­tions of a wide Cen­trist vic­tory. Ac­cord­ing to United States diplo­mat John Day, the Amer­i­cans wor­ried that, due to the old age of George Pa­pan­dreou, An­dreas Pa­pan­dreouwould have a very pow­er­ful role in the next gov­ern­ment. Ac­cord­ing to the United States diplo­mats Robert Keely and John Owens, who were at­tached to the United States em­bassy in Greece at the time, Con­stan­tine asked United States Am­bas­sador Phillips Tal­bot what the at­ti­tude of the United States gov­ern­ment would be to an ex­tra-par­lia­men­tary so­lu­tion to this prob­lem. The em­bassy re­sponded neg­a­tively in prin­ci­ple, adding that "US re­ac­tion to such a move can­not be de­ter­mined in ad­vance but would de­pend on cir­cum­stances at time". To this day, Con­stan­tine de­nies all this. Ac­cord­ing to then-Am­bas­sador from the United States Phillips Tal­bot, after this com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Con­stan­tine met with the gen­er­als of...

    In July 1974, the events in Cyprus led to the down­fall of the mil­i­tary regime, and Kara­man­lis re­turned from exile to be­come prime min­is­ter. The 1973 re­pub­li­can con­sti­tu­tion was re­garded as il­le­git­i­mate, and the new ad­min­is­tra­tion is­sued a con­sti­tu­tional de­cree restor­ing the 1952 con­sti­tu­tion. Con­stan­tine con­fi­dently awaited an in­vi­ta­tion to return.On 24 July he de­clared his "deep sat­is­fac­tion with the ini­tia­tive of the armed forces in over­throw­ing the dic­ta­to­r­ial regime" and wel­comed the ad­vent of Kara­man­lis as prime min­is­ter. The for­mer king vis­ited both Buck­ing­ham Palace and 10 Down­ing Street and openly de­clared his hope to be shortly re­turn­ing to Greece. How­ever, the 1952 con­sti­tu­tion was not re­stored with the over­throw of the il­le­gal junta. Fol­low­ing Kara­man­lis' re­sound­ing vic­tory in the No­vem­ber 1974 par­lia­men­tary elec­tions (his New Democ­racy party won 54.4% of the vote), he called a ref­er­...

    Con­stan­tine re­mained in exile for al­most forty years after the vote in favour of the republic. He was strongly dis­cour­aged from re­turn­ing to Greece, and he did not re­turn until Feb­ru­ary 1981, when the gov­ern­ment only al­lowed him to re­turn for a few hours, to at­tend the fu­neral of his mother, Queen Fred­er­ica, in the fam­ily ceme­tery of the for­mer Royal Palace at Tatoi. There were also legal dis­putes with the Greek state. In 1992 he con­cluded an agree­ment with the con­ser­v­a­tive gov­ern­ment of Prime Min­is­ter Con­stan­tine Mit­so­takis, ced­ing most of his land in Greece to a non-profit foun­da­tion in ex­change for the for­mer palace of Tatoi, near Athens, and the right to ex­port a num­ber of mov­ables from Greece. The lat­ter re­port­edly in­cluded pri­vately owned art trea­sures from the royal palaces. As such, no for­mal ac­count of what was re­moved was ever given or needed to be given. In 1993, Con­stan­tine vis­ited Greece, but faced with gov­ern­me...

    Fol­low­ing the abo­li­tion of the monar­chy, Con­stan­tine has re­peat­edly stated that he rec­og­nizes the Re­pub­lic, the laws and the con­sti­tu­tion of Greece. He told Time, "If the Greek peo­ple de­cide that they want a re­pub­lic, they are en­ti­tled to have that and should be left in peace to enjoy it." Con­stan­tine and Anne-Marie for many years lived in Hamp­stead Gar­den Sub­urb, Lon­don, Con­stan­tine being a close friend of his sec­ond cousin Charles, Prince of Wales, and a god­fa­ther to Prince William, Duke of Cam­bridge, his sec­ond cousin once re­moved. He sold his house in Hamp­stead in 2013. Con­stan­tine is a pa­tron of Box Hill School, a pub­lic school in Dork­ing, in the south of Eng­land. In 2004, Con­stan­tine re­turned to Greece tem­porar­ily dur­ing the Athens Olympic Games as a mem­ber of the In­ter­na­tional Olympic Committee. On 24 De­cem­ber 2004, Con­stan­tine and Anne-Marie and mem­bers of the for­mer royal fam­ily vis­ited the Pres­i­den­tial Man­sio...

    On 18 Sep­tem­ber 1964, in a Greek Or­tho­dox cer­e­mony in the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Cathe­dral of Athens, he mar­ried Princess Anne-Marie of Den­mark. The chil­dren of Con­stan­tine and Anne-Marie are: 1. Princess Alexia, born on 10 July 1965 at Mon Repos in Corfu. She was married on 9 July 1999 in London to Carlos Morales Quintana. 2. Crown Prince Pavlos, born on 20 May 1967 at Tatoi Palace in Athens. He was married on 1 July 1995 in London to Marie-Chantal Miller. 3. Prince Nikolaos, born on 1 October 1969 at Villa Claudia Clinic in Rome. He was married on 25 August 2010 in Spetses to Tatiana Elinka Blatnik. 4. Princess Theodora, born on 9 June 1983 in St Mary's Hospital, London, who is pursuing an acting career. 5. Prince Philippos, born on 26 April 1986 in St Mary's Hospital, London. He works as a hedge fund analyst in New York. He married Nina Nastassja Flohr on 12 December 2020 in St. Moritzin a civil ceremony.

    Titles and styles

    Until 1994, Con­stan­tine's of­fi­cial Greek pass­port iden­ti­fied him as "Con­stan­tine, for­mer King of the Hel­lenes". A law passed in 1994 stripped him of his Greek cit­i­zen­ship, pass­port, and prop­erty. The law stated that Con­stan­tine could not be granted a Greek pass­port un­less he adopted a sur­name. Con­stan­tine has stated: "I don't have a name—my fam­ily doesn't have a name. The law that Mr Pa­pan­dreou passed ba­si­cally says that he con­sid­ers that I am not Greek and that...

    Early years

    Born in the purple at Constantinople, Alexios was the long-awaited son of Emperor Manuel I Komnenos (who gave him a name that began with the letter alpha as a fulfillment of the AIMA prophecy) and Maria of Antioch. In 1171 he was crowned co-emperor, and in 1175 he accompanied his father at Dorylaion in Asia Minor in order to have the city rebuilt. On 2 March 1180, at the age of eleven, he was married to Agnes of France aged 10, daughter of King Louis VII of France. She was thereafter known as...

    Regency of Maria and Alexios

    When Manuel I died in 1180, Alexios II succeeded him as emperor. At this time, however, he was an uneducated, barely-teenaged boy with only amusements in mind. The imperial regency was then undertaken by the dowager empress and the prōtosebastos Alexios Komnenos (a namesake cousin of Alexios II), who was popularly believed to be her lover.:64 The regents depleted the imperial treasury by granting privileges to Italian merchants and to the Byzantine aristocracy. When Béla III of Hungary and Ki...

    Regency of Andronikos and death

    On 16 May 1182 Andronikos, posing as Alexios' protector, officially restored him on the throne.:64 As for 1180, the young emperor was uninterested in ruling matters, and Andronikos effectively acted as the power behind the throne, not allowing Alexios any voice in public affairs. One after another, Andronikos suppressed most of Alexios' defenders and supporters: his half-sister Maria Komnene, the caesar John, his loyal generals Andronikos Doukas Angelos, Andronikos Kontostephanos and John Kom...

    Alexios is a character in the historical novel Agnes of France (1980) by Greek writer Kostas Kyriazis. The novel describes the events of the reigns of Manuel I, Alexios II, and Andronikos I through the eyes of Agnes.
