Prince Dimitri Romanoff was born in 1926 in Antibes, France, where he spent his early childhood. He was educated in Italy and settled in 1961 in Denmark, where he and his Danish born wife Jeanne live at Rungsted, north of Copenhagen. The author's grandfather, Grand Duke Peter Nicholaievitch of Russia, was a first cousin of Grand Duchess Olga Constantinovna or Russia, who, at the age of sixteen, married King George I of the Hellens.
Compiled on similar lines to his earlier works, "The Orders, Medals and History of Greece" provides at last the essential information dealing with Greek decorations and their historical background and offers brilliant photographic documentation of all the Nation's awards.
