Alexander Oldenburg, I
Birth: Aug. 1, 1893
Death: Oct. 25, 1920

King of the Hellenes from 1917 to 1920. He was the second son of King Constantine I and Queen Sophie. On 27 September 1920., King Alexander, after repairing the engine of his car at Tatoi, was involved in a bizarre accident. His dog, Fritz, was involved in a fight with 2 pet monkeys (owned by the Manager of the estate). The King tried to separate them and was bitten on the leg by one of the monkeys. The wound turned septic and, after 4 weeks and 7 operations, the young King Alexander I died. He left his wife, Princess Aspasia. She gave birth to their child, Alexandra on 25 March 1921. The throne passed to Queen Olga, King Alexander's grandmother, as Regent. (bio by: Jelena)
