Which prince is this "Prince Michael"? Please expand. YannisKollias 01:35, 26 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Have some technical issues here; the link for Olga goes to and Olga born 1903? Come on folks, don't make this site look like a cheap want-to-be genealogical site. [Technical Writing, Sharon&Sharon Fourth Edition]

It says Prince Michael was a "Third Lieutenant" in the Greek Army. Was there such a rank at one time? Now they have lokhagos (captain), upolokhagos (literally "sub-captain", i.e. "lieutenant") and anthupolokhagos (second lieutenant). Perhaps that system of terminology led to some confusion? --Jpbrenna 23:52, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

Morganatic marriage[edit]

If, as the article says, Prince MIchael's marriage to Marina was morganatic, how is it that their children have titles? Morganatic marriages prevent the transfer of a husband's rank and title to his spouse and children. Any ideas? ( 05:22, 17 April 2006 (UTC))

His daughters have titles, but not succession rights. Charles 15:00, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Michael or Michel?[edit]

In the copyright page for The White Night of St. Petersburg, the author's name is given as "Michel, Prince of Greece". Anyone have any idea why this spelling? Tualha (Talk) 15:31, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

I believe his name may have been incompletely translated from French, which I believe is the language the book was written in first. Charles 15:32, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
FYI: there should be some notation that "Prince Michael of Greece" is his legal name, ie his actual name, legally, per a legal decision in a court case initiated by him, not just per birth. I recall there being an interview with him and mention of this.Mowens35 17:13, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
