George I was born in 1845 in Copenhagen to Danish king Christian IX. As a young man he served in the Danish navy. In 1863 Wilhelm George was made King of Greece under the name George I. To commemorate this, Russian Emperor Alexander II awarded him the medal of  St Andrew. In 1867 George I married the niece of Alexander II - Grand Duchess Olga Konstantinova. Later on George's three children married members of the Russian Imperial House. No wonder that many works of Russian jewellers, including Fabergé's, could be found in the collection of George I.
