The Monarch of Greece was the hereditary head of state of Greece from 1832 to 1924 and 1935 to 1973.

Constantine II, the last King of Greece



In 1832, Prince Otto of Bavaria was crowned King of Greece. He reigned for 30 years until he was deposed in 1862. An election was held to determine the next King and Prince George of Denmark was chosen by the Greek Assembly.

In 1924, the Greek population voted to become a republic. However, in 1935, the monarchy was reinstated in another vote.

In July 1973, the Greek military junta held a referendum, which abolished the monarchy once again. A year later, the democratically elected Konstantinos Karamanlis held another referendum, which confirmed the abolition of the monarchy.
