  • Description

    Exiled King Constantine of Greece and his family celebrated his name-day at the Greek Orthodox Church in Rome on Monday (May 21) while the Greek Government celebrated it in Athens.

    The King has lived in Italy since he went into self-imposed exile in December 1976 -- after an abortive counter-coup against the military regime which took over government eight months earlier. He is still regarded as King in Greece, and Prime Minister George Papadopoulos rules as Regent.

    'Name-day' are celebrated to commemorate the day that a person's patron saint died. King Constantine's patron is Constantine the Great, who was the first Roman Emperor to become a Christian.
