Category:George I of Greece

George I, King of the Hellenes (Greek: Γεώργιος A', Βασιλεύς των Ελλήνων) (December 24, 1845 – March 18, 1913) was King of the Hellenes (Greece) from 1863 to 1913. As the first monarch of the new Greek dynasty, his 50-year reign (the longest in modern Greek history) was characterized by territorial gain and political coming-of-age as Greece established her place in pre-war Europe.
