FRIDAY, JANUARY 21, 1938 BLYTHBV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS How Does He Look to White House Callers? PBBBB I Is He Fascist?! Wedding In Athens Por- 1 tends Ivvil For Relative Of Kaiser BY M1I.TON BHCVNIJK MTA Servii-i' StuiT C'ori'fsptinik'nl LONDON. Jim. 21. — Ominously gray skies ponrinu Icy rain am! ,' ::!a?hlng sleel upon Hie recent w«l {> k'lng in Athens of Prince Paul j mlr to the Creek throne, and Princess Frcderlkn I,ul«e of Brims- wlck Denied filled with dlro portent lo student:; n( royal genealogy. For the couple were wed in the | shadow of one of tlio:e dynastic f "CUITCS" lhat .sometime.'; hover over royal families nnd provide grist for historical romances. Theirs Is "the Kaiser Jinx." Both arc related lo the Ill-faiei) Prussian House of Hohenzollcrn. and from Ihe lime of this connection, there has been n curse • on both their houses. To go back: King Christian ot Denmark had sb: children and. by marrying ll:em off lo most of the reigning houses, won Ihe nickname "Fattier-in-law of Kurouc". Ills second son, George, was placed on the Greek throne as George I by the Great Powers. He married a Russian Archduchess, and their eldest child was Constantino, later the King of Greece, dubbed "Tino" by his familiars. So far all was well. ' * • * Marriage Brings Hooiloo , But as soon as I 'lino married, .,.- Lady Luck fled and the Jinx put 1 the finger on him nnd nil hi.s line. \ln 1889 he wed Princess Sophia, sister of Kaiser Wilhelm II, which is where the Hohenzollern strain enters the picture. Tino and Sophia were a devoted pair, but hard luck started to haunt them. : In a war with Turkey the Greek armies under Crown Prince Con- stantiiie got a licking, and Tino became so unpopular he had to leave the country. Vcnizelos. tlie Cretan .Warwick, later to be his enemy, brought him back hi 1910, The Balkan wars came along In 1912-13, and Tino, leading the Greeks to victory, won buck the favor of his people. So far, not so bad. But Lady Luck's smile was a false face, and the Hohenzollern hoodoo struck again. King George I. ' Constnntire's popular and blameless father, was assassinated at Salonika iii\:l913; ..Tirio- succeeded to the throiie and the Jinx, now I warmed up, ] started to pitch in \ iurnest. It dumped the World War in Tino's lap, and the upholstered arms of the throne became the sharp horns of n dilemma. The Kaiser was his brother-in-law, ami wanted Greece In on the German side. But George V of England nnd Nicholas II of Russia were blood nephews and plugged for Greece as one ot the Allies, icing Tino decided lo avoid a family fight, and look neutrality ns an out. This didn't suit pro-Ally Venl- «?!os. his sponsor, and they quarreled violently. The Cretan was n good hater, and in June. 1911, Jinx chalked up another strike when Tino was deposed. * * * Slill Out of Luck Poor Constantino again fell victim to Lady Luck's insincerity when, in 1920, she seemed !to smile an invitation to return from exile. J This time he was able to rule the r< Creek people just long enough to become involved in a war with Turkey and 1mve his armies collide disastrously with the rising star of Mustapha Kemal. He abdicated in 1922 and died in exile the next year. But the hoodoo hadn't been concentrating on Constantine. During Tino's first abdication in 1917, his younger brother Alexander was put on the throne by the Allies, George, the natural heir, being unacceptable to them. He lasted three years. He became a hoodoo victim In 1920 when his pet monkey bit him, causing his death. After Tino's final abdication, in 1922, ihe Crown Prince at last succeeded as the present King George II, only lo run Into the Jinx when the Greek people chased him out in 1923. He remained n disconsolate exile until 1935. As m j fJeorge II. has no children, his n. Brother, the bridegroom Prince Paul, is heir presumptive. * * • Brlile's Family Jinxcd Too Paul's bride, Princess Frederikn I.uise. is his second cousin. She Is of the once potent German House of Bnmwlck, which bloomed until blighted by the llolion- zollern curse. Tlie Brunswick line is ancient, and ruled for centuries ns Kings of Hanover. But the roj'al Hanoverians ceased to exist as a ruling dynasty when the up-and-coming House of Hohenzollern grabbed their country In 1856. This of course precipitated a bitter feud between • the Prussians and the Brunswicks, which was only healed when Fred- trika Liiise's father. Duke of Brnnswkk, married the Kaiser's only daughter, Princess Victoria 5-oiilse. C But the felicity accompanying the happy ending of the Teutonic Ilomeo and Juliet situation did not last long. The hoodoo flew In with the World War.
