The royal emblems of King Otto (Othon, in Greece), which the Ministry of Culture found in 2023 at the former summer palace in Tatoi, were put on display at the Greek parliament on Friday. The display will continue until 2073.

The regalia, including the king's crown, sceptre, and sword, can be seen in the Hellenic Parliament's Trophies Hall, Eleftherios Venizelos.

As stated in a relevant parliamentary announcement, the historical artifacts were presented to the President of the Parliament, Constantine Tassoulas, by the Minister of Culture, Lina Mendoni, in a special ceremony.

"History passes through regimes, 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.
