Ancestry

Her paternal grandparents were King Paul of Greece and Frederika of Hanover. Her maternal grandparents are Frederick IX of Denmark and Ingrid of Sweden. As an agnatic descendant of Christian IX of Denmark Theodora is a Danish princess, and because King Christian's younger son, Prince William of Denmark, was elected "George I, King of the Hellenes" in 1863, her father (George's great-grandson) inherited the throne of Greece in 1964.

She is closely related to eight current or former reigning sovereigns of Europe: daughter of Constantine II of Greece, maternal niece of Margrethe II of Denmark, paternal first cousin of Felipe VI of Spain, matrilineal first cousin once removed of Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, second cousin once removed of Harald V of Norway, second cousin and third cousin once removed of Philippe of the Belgians and thus first cousin once removed and third cousin of Albert II of the Belgians, and, by two different ways, third cousin once removed of Elizabeth II, as well as a paternal first cousin twice removed of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

As a great-great-granddaughter of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught (son of Queen Victoria), Princess Theodora is also in the line of succession to the British throne pursuant to the Act of Settlement 1701.
