King of Greece Otto


Bavarian prince, the second son of King Ludwig I of Bavaria. While still a minor, he became the first modern King of Greece in 1832 under the Convention of London. He reigned until his deposition in 1862.

Otto married a beautiful and talented 17-year-old, Duchess Amalia (Amelie) of Oldenburg (21 December 1818 to 20 May 1875) in Oldenburg on 22 November 1836; the marriage did not produce an heir.

Otto died in exile in Bavaria, at Bamberg, on 26 July 1867, aged 52.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Das städtische Museum in Salzburg" [The Municipal Museum in Salzburg] by Maria Vinzenz Süss (Duyle, 1844), p. 115: "Am 1. Juni 1815, um 2 Uhr Nachmittags, in der hiesigen Sommerresidenz geboren, und am 2. Juni, um halb 2 Uhr Nachmittags, in der hiesigen Domkirche getauft." (Translation: Born on 1 June 1815 at 2 o'clock in the afternoon in the local summer residence, and on 2 June at 1:30 in the afternoon baptized in the local cathedral).

On 6 February 2017, Scholfield changed the time from 2pm to 1:30pm (and the rating from B to A), having forwarded news report from "Baierische National-Zeitung," 5 June 1815, p. 1: "München, den 4. Juni. Am verstoffenen Freitag erbielt Sr. Maj. der König die frohe Nachricht aus Salzburg, daß der Kronprinzessin Königl. Hoheit am 1. um halb 2 Uhr Nachmittags von einem Prinzen glücklich entbunden worden ist, welchem T?s darauf bei der heil. Taufe die Namen Otto Friedrich Ludwig beigelegt wurden." (Munich, 4 June. On Friday, His Majesty the King gave the glad news from Salzburg that the Crown Prince, On the 1st, at half-before-two [one-thirty] o'clock in the afternoon, was happily delivered of a prince, who was baptised with the names of Otto Friedrich Ludwig).
