This made me a bit curious: which great-grandson would this have been?
If I have done my homework properly, the King and Queen had only four great-grandchildren in 1892, and only two of them were boys: Prince Georgios of Greece (later King Georgios II of the Hellenes) and Grand Duke Dmitry Pavlovich, the son of Princess Alexandra of Greece, who had died only a few days after the birth of her son.
(Just to include them, the two great-granddaughters born before 1892 were Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, Dmitry's elder sister (and later the mother of Lennart Bernadotte), and Lady Alexandra Duff, later Princess Alexandra, Duchess of Fife.)
So, the great-grandson who was lifted up by the King, does anyone know if that was Georgios or Dmitry? If I were to venture a guess, I would assume that Crown Prince Konstantinos and Crown Princess Sophia of Greece being present with their little son would be rather more likely than the already widowed Grand Duke Pavel Aleksandrovich and his children being present at the celebrations in honour of his late wife's grandparents. Does anybody know?
