Well he is (was) Greek royalty but only because they imported a bunch of North European royalty sometime back in the 19th C. ("Buy one get one free at Curaaazy Bob's royalty store!")
So he's got more Danish ancestry than anything else and his first language was German*! ... This did not deter him from spending WW2 blowing Nazis away with enormous naval cannon.

/*Apparently his German is incredibly old fashioned upper class and sounds quite odd to modern Germans.
