Description

Greece, Otto I (1832-1862), Queen Amalia, Bronze Medal, undated, unsigned (possibly Konrad Lange). Diademed and draped bust of the Queen right, legend surrounds. Rev, three palm trees, legend surrounds (Witt. 2907. Wurzb. -. Wietek -). About Uncirculated with hints of lustre to peripheries, RRRR.

Queen Amalia was initially loved widely by the Greeks due to her patriotic love for the country and her beauty. During her tenure as queen, she was dedicated to social improvement and the founding of many gardens in Athens. After she became more politically involved, however, she became the target of harsh attacks—and her image suffered further as she proved unable to provide an heir to the throne. She and her husband were expelled from Greece in 1862, after an uprising.
