Description

Modern Greece emerged from the Ottoman Empire in the early 19th century. Seeking protection from Europe they looked around for a well connected yet weak European royal for patronage and alliances. They picked a Bavarian prince. The monarchs were mediocre, and have been thrown out by republican revolutions twice in the the 20th century.
