  King Constantine II - Phantis
Constantine Karamanlis who had just won a resounding victory (54% of the vote in a general election) had formally declared his neutrality in the referendum, although he was rumoured to be against the monarchy.
Constantine's personality, the way he had first sworn in the junta government, in 1967, before organising an entirely unscuccesful and somewhat comical counter-coup against them later in that year, and his reluctance to sever all ties with the junta once in exile, did not help the monarchy either.
Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie live in exile in London, England, where the exiled monarch is a close friend of The Prince of Wales and a godfather to Prince William of Wales.

 Constantine Karamanlis Summary
Karamanlis was succeeded by Panagiotis Kanellopoulos as the ERE leader.
The elections were soon followed by the 1974 plebiscite on the abolition of the monarchy and the establishment of the Hellenic Republic, the televised 1975 trials of the former dictators (who received death sentences for high treason and mutiny that were later commuted to life incarceration) and the writing of the 1975 constitution.
Karamanlis has been praised for presiding over an early period of fast economic growth for Greece (1957-61) and for masterminding the sucessful Greek bid for membership into the emerging economic community of European nations, which eventually became the European Union.

Constantine is the favorite former king of Europe's reigning royals- his sister is the Queen of Spain, his sister-in-law is the Queen of Denmark, Prince Philip is his cousin, and he is a godfather of Prince William- and perhaps the most determined to reign again.
Constantine, guided by Burson-Marsteller, the powerful public-relations firm he has employed since 1974, responded with a barrage of interviews in which he likened the Greek government's actions to those of Hitler and Stalin, and vowed to press his case all the way to the European Court of Human Rights.
Constantine had one more chance to show his mettle, in 1974, when the military regime disintegrated during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus and former prime minister Karamanlis was asked back to form a government.

When in 1997 the former King reiterated Sulzberger's allegations, Karamanlis stated that he "will not deal with the former king's statements because both their content and attitude are unworthy of comment." The deposed King's adoption of Sulzberger's claims against Karamanlis was castigated by left-leaning media, typically critical of Karamanlis, as "shameless" and "brazen".
Following his signing of the Accession Treaty with the European Economic Community (now the European Union) in 1979, Karamanlis relinquished the Premiership and was elected President of the Republic in 1980 by the Parliament, and in 1981 he oversaw Greece's formal entry into the European Economic Community as its tenth member.

 I Stand Alone -- Monday, Mar. 05, 1956 -- Page 1 -- TIME
For six weeks six-footer Karamanlis had tramped and traveled from snow-choked passes in Macedonia to sun-washed villages in the Peloponnesus to defend his pro-Western policy against the coalition formed against him by three disgruntled ex-Premiers in league with the remnant of the outlawed Communist Party.
The opposition centered its fire on Greece's "humiliation" over Cyprus, needled Karamanlis unmercifully for "giving in to the British," for his "servility" to the U.S. Pointing to the Democratic Union's higher popular vote, Communist propagandists from Moscow to Budapest crowed that a majority of Greeks had "repudiated" Karamanlis' pro-Western government.
