King Otto’s regalia on display at Greek parliament until 2073


The royal regalia of King Otto, discovered by the Ministry of Culture in 2023 at the former summer palace in Tatoi, are now on display in the Greek Parliament until 2073. These historical artifacts, including the king’s crown, scepter, and sword, can be viewed in the Hellenic Parliament’s Trophies Hall ‘Eleftherios Venizelos.’

According to, in a special ceremony, Minister of Culture Lina Mendoni presented the regalia to Parliament President Constantine Tassoulas.


“History passes through regimes, passes through political systems, and does what is most valuable: it teaches. That is why these unveilings here today are not only unveilings of emblematic memories but also unveilings of history teaching,” emphasized Tassoulas during the unveiling of the regalia.

He stressed that they are “three new exciting, historical, and aesthetic exhibits that enrich the precious arc of memory contained in the ‘Eleftherios Venizelos’ Hall and are related to historical phases of the modern Greek state.”
Mendoni provided an extensive description of the valuable regalia and their journey until they arrived in Greece after the fall of the dictatorship. “The royal distinctive emblems of Otto, beyond any doubt, constitute historical treasures of the Greek people and the Greek nation and they must be treated as such,”she stressed.
