Paul Oldenburg, I
Birth: Dec. 14, 1901
Death: Mar. 6, 1964

King of the Hellenes from 1947 to 1964. He succeeded his elder brother, George II, on 1 April, 1947. George II, who had no children, died of a sudden heart attack after a short illness. King Paul I had suffered many of the hardships undergone by the Greek royal family during the Second World War - with their exile in Egypt, South Africa and London, and their escape from German attacks on Crete. George II and Crown Prince Paul (with his wife, Crown Princess Frederica) had returned to Greece on 28 September, 1946. King Paul I became the last Orthodox sovereign in the world after the abdication of his cousin King Michael of Rumania in December 1947.  (bio by: Jelena)
