Princess Tatiana of Greece and Denmark (née Tatiana Ellinka Blatnik; born 28 August 1980) is the wife of Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark, son of King Constantine II of Greece, Prince of Denmark and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, Princess of Denmark.

In Denmark or by courtesy elsewhere, Tatiana became styled Her Royal Highness Princess Tatiana of Greece and Denmark upon her marriage on 25 August 2010.

Early lifeEdit

Tatiana Blatnik was born in Caracas, Venezuela. When she was three years old, she and her family moved to Switzerland.[1] Tatiana and her brother, Boris Blatnik (born on 21 February 1978), are the natural children of Ladislav Vladimir Blatnik, born in Slovenia, and Marie Blanche Bierlein (born in Munichen 10 December 1954).

Her father died when she was 6 and she was raised by her mother. Her stepfather Attilio Brillembourg is the owner of a New York area financial services company. Her maternal grandparents are Ernst Bierlein, born in Munich on 26 February 1920, and wife (married in Munich on 21 February 1945) Countess Ellinka von Einsiedel, born in Würmegg on 26 July 1922, this last by whom she is a descendant of the Prince Elector William II of Hesse.


Tatiana studied at a private boarding school Aiglon College in Switzerland.[2] Later she studied at Georgetown University graduating in 2003 with a degree in sociology. Afterwards she returned to Switzerland where she studied communicology.[1]


Until July 2010, when she resigned to concentrate on her wedding plans, Tatiana had worked in the publicity department as an event planner for fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg.[3][4]

A Taste of Greece Edit

In July 2016, A Taste of Greece was published internationally by TeNeues Media. The illustrated cookbook was coordinated by Princess Tatiana and edited by the food writer Diana Farr Louis. It is a non-profit publication whose sales benefit the Greek charity Boroume ("we can!"), supporting food supplies both to refugees in Greece and to Greeks suffering poverty due to the country's economic crisis.

Personal lifeEdit

Engagement Edit

Prince Nikolaos's engagement to Tatiana Blatnik, with whom he has been in a long term relationship, was announced on 28 December 2009, by the office of King Constantine in London.[5]

The couple married in Spetses, Greece on 25 August 2010. The marriage was widely reported in the Greek media. The entire Danish Royal Family, with the exception of Crown Prince Frederik, travelled to attend the marriage along with others.

Princess Nikolaos' former employer Diane von Fürstenberg did not attend the ceremony or design the bride's dress (as had been widely expected). The gown was instead designed by Angel Sanchez.[6]
