Can you identify them? It seems to me that King George II might count as having once been deposed and once abdicated ... His brother Alexander, of course, was the one who died from the monkey bite.
And their grandfather, King George I, was the one who was assassinated.
I believe that King Constantine I abdicated, as opposed to be deposed. King Constantine II was deposed -- just like King Otto of the house of Wittelsbach -- but never abdicated.
Who was the other king who abdicated? What was the exact record with George II, who was recalled to the throne twice?
The Glücksburg monarchy was German-Danish in origin, imposed on Greece in the 1830s.
Wrong ! In the 1830s thr Greek throne was offered to Pr. Otto of Bavaria.
The Glucksburgs only arrived in 1863.
