  • Historical Background
    artist François Louis Bareaud was commissioned to plant and design the Gardens in the late 1840s From 1862 to 1922 Following the expulsion of Otto in 1862 the Palace housed the new king George Ι He arrived in Athens on October 17 1863 After his marriage to Olga of Russia in 1867 several additions and modifications were made the most important of which were the alteration of the east wing staircase and the construction of an orthodox chapel on the second floor consecrated to Saint George The palace was now occupied by a large family and the need to provide hospitality to many foreign royals necessitated several changes The foremost reason though for changes to the initial design was two damaging fires one in 1884 which ravaged the second floor of the northern wing and one in 1909 which fully destroyed the central wing and partly the adjoining parts of the eastern and western wings and forced the royal family to move to the summer palace in Tatoi The king moved back to the palace in 1912 but few repairs had taken place by then Nor could further changes or restorations take place in the years around World War I political events taking centre stage At that time little could be done with Greece been involved in one war after another and consequently funds being in scarcity The Balkan Wars the World War I and the Greek Turkish War of 1919 1922 were more pressing matters than the renovation of the building Furthermore after the assassination of king George I in 1913 the Crown Prince Constantine I as the new king went on using his own residence the Mansion on Herodou Atticou Street which today is the official residence of the President of the Republic Queen mother Olga and several other members of the royal family stayed intermittently in the Old Palace until 1922 Transitional Period 1922 marks a watershed for the building That year it was permanently abandoned by the royal family while Greece was undergoing a regime change from monarchy to republic The building proved versatile enough to accommodate this emblematic change in Greek politics Immediately after 1922 public bodies private charities and international organisations responsible for administering the aftermath of the Asia Minor Disaster especially the mass influx of millions of refugees into Greece were all housed in the building alongside several newly formed governmental departments So among the list of occupants during this period were several departments of the Ministry for Agriculture and the Defence and Health Ministries but also the International Bureau for Immigrants the Urban Police Hq the Christian Youth Union the Greek Red Cross and the International Union of Women A medical care centre for infants student housing the Benaki Laboratories and the Near East Relief hospital and orphanage were also housed inside the building The chambers of George I and the chapel on the ground floor were used for storing the former king s property The Museum of Memorabilia of George I
