a Bavarian prince who became the first modern King of Greece in 1832 under the Convention of London. He reigned until he was deposed in 1862. The second son of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, Otto ascended the newly created throne of Greece while still a minor.

Upon reaching his majority, Otto removed the regents when they proved unpopular with the people and he ruled as an absolute monarch.
