Constantine II and the Greek Financial Crisis

From an Australian think tank comes this thorough 2011 analysis of the history of the Greek monarchy and its relevance to recent events in both Greece and Australia. Writer Dr David Bennett refutes many of the republican calumnies against the Greek royal family. In particular he exhaustively demonstrates how unfair it is that the dynasty founded by George I has been smeared as tied to foreign interests when in fact they dedicated themselves completely to Greece and its interests, rather more so than many Greek politicians.
