147. Au Contraire!
The Duke of Edinburgh WAS a prince of Denmark and Greece, but he isn't Greek per se. His father Prince Andrew, was the grandson of King Christian IX of Denmark, and his mother was the Princess Alice of Battenberg,and was the daughter of Prince Louis of Battenberg (Germany, but she has English blood in her, too). He was Greek in name only, as his family was manipulated onto the Greek throne to further British foreign policy.
