Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark (born 1 October 1969) is the second son and third child of King Constantine II of Greece and Anne-Marie of Denmark.

Early lifeEdit

He was born in Rome, Italy, due to the coup which ousted the monarchy from Greece and caused the royal family to flee to Italy in December 1967. His father was deposed in 1973 and the monarchy was officially abolished in 1974.

Prince Nikolaos has an older sister Princess Alexia, an older brother Crown Prince Pavlos, a younger sister Princess Theodora and a younger brother, Prince Philippos.


Like his brothers and sisters, he was educated in the Hellenic College of London, founded by his parents in 1980.

In 1993, he graduated from Brown University with an A.B. in International Relations.


He has worked for NatWest Markets in London and is currently working in his father's private office since 1998. He is a member of board of the Anna-Maria Foundation, designed to help victims of natural disasters like floods and earthquakes in Greece.

Slip InnEdit

Prince Nikolaos was one of a group of European royals at the Slip Inn in Sydney, Australia, during the 2000 Summer Olympics. He was there with his cousins the Crown Prince of Denmark, Prince Joachim of Denmark, and Princess Märtha Louise of Norway. It was at the Slip Inn that Frederik met his future wife Mary Donaldson.
