What are you referring to here? I wonder if my understanding of the term "Asia Minor" is problematic. I understand to mean Anatolia, i.e., mainland Turkey. So it would seem to me that Greece "lost" Asia Minor a long, long time ago.

The Cyprus issue is of course the most shameful part of all of this with no end in sight.
I understand that there is an ongoing dispute over whether North Cyprus should be an independent ethnically Turkish state. Where does the "shame" lie, in your view?

Thankfuly... Greece is now a democratic country without a royal family
So you don't think that Greece would have been a successful constitutional monarchy, such as Britain, Spain, etc.?
