George II 1890–1947, king of the Hellenes (1922–23, 1935–47), successor and eldest son of King Constantine I.
Hostility to the dynasty was such, however, that George was compelled to leave Greece in 1923; a plebiscite shortly afterward established a republic.
When Greece was liberated (1944) the question of the king's return was a major issue in the Greek civil war that began in Dec., 1944.

 The Earthquake of September 7, 1999 in Athens, Greece - by Dr. George Pararas-Carayannis
The long-term seismicity of central Greece is clearly different from that of neighboring Anatolia to the east, in that no earthquakes of magnitude greater than 7.0 occur - or at least nothing that large is known to have occurred in the last 500 years.
Was the earthquake of September 7, 1999 in Greece a consequence of the August 17 earthquake in Turkey?

 Guardian | Little George takes on Greece's barons of sleaze
As foreign minister, George Papandreou presided over a quiet revolution in Greece's Balkan policies, backing Slobodan Milosevic's democratic opponents, a sea change in relations with Ankara and the sponsorship of UN peace plan that could see Turkish and Greek Cypriots reunited after more than 30 years.
We could be sitting in California or Sweden, anywhere but Levantine Greece, where everything is a plot, usually an American one, where national newspapers gleefully record Mr Papandreou's grammatical mistakes and Orthodox priests get on television to denounce the man with an American mother.
Greece, one of the fastest growing economies in the EU, is rapidly becoming one of its most expensive countries to live in.

 The George Cross - Rediff Personal Homepages
If at this moment King George could not guarantee to his subjects a better furture, he could at least formally recognize their gallantry in the present, but he was exercised in his mind as to what form this recognition should take.
There existed many decorations and medals instituted by his predecessors for the reward of gallantry and meritorious conduct, but these, by their terms of reference, were restricted in the main to members of the armed forces and only one of them, the Victoria Cross, was open to award of all ranks.
The planning of the George Cross and Medal was therefore of particular pleasure and interest to him, and the final design was almost entirely his own work, for he had sketched out an original device and had studied and amended with meticulous care the subsequent drafts presented to him.
