Kaiser plays matchmaker for Greek marriage

February 18, 1914

Crown Prince George of Greece will marry Princess Elizabeth of Romania at Athens on May 21, according to a Bucharest dispatch to the German newspaper, Neue Freie Press.

The dispatch states that Emperor Wilhelm II "arranged the match" and will be a witness to the marriage, along with Queen Elisabeth of Romania.

King Constantine has already presented to Princess Elisabeth a castle at Tatos  and has "bestowed the title Duchess of Sparta upon her."

[Tatos is probably Tatoi]
