Chapter 56: Closing Ceremony of the 1897 Olympics
“This Olympics, which took place more than two thousand years later, was held by the conviction that we want to revive the traditional culture of Greece, which had been shining brightly in the past, and to help peacefully relieve the ever-increasing tension in the world… … .”
‘It’s a throaty one.’
Even in the 19th century, where there was no sound system, the voice of Prince Constantinos, the successor of Greece, who was conducting the closing ceremony of the Olympics, was heard even where I was sitting.
Even though it is small, it should be said that it is like a Greek that speaks loud enough that it cannot be confused with any country.
The prince, who speaks as if he thinks about peace more than anyone right now, was also obsessed with anti-Greekism (Megali Idea) and attacked Turkey after he ascended to the throne. The words he was saying at the closing ceremony were flawless.
“We, Europeans, have to look back on the value of the word peace in these times of turmoil. Although this Olympic Games was originally scheduled to be held last year, it could not be held in 1896, it is worth looking into the background of 1897 and even this year. Not long ago, Europeans, including myself, had to fall in fear of war. Had it not been for the sudden emergence of peace guardians, we might have had to witness fears turning into reality. I would like to express my gratitude to the Russian Tsar, Nikolai II, who took this opportunity to attend the closing ceremony today and honored the event.”
“The Mediator of European Peace!”
In fact, there were good reasons for Prince Constantinos to express my gratitude so openly.
After the London Commune, when it became uncertain whether or not to hold the Olympics due to the African crisis that occurred last year, it was because I first announced my intention to hold the Olympics even if the Olympics were delayed for a year.
However, not everyone showed a friendly appearance to me like Prince Constantine or the Greek audience.
“You like the guardians of peace in Europe. In my whole life, I haven’t just heard word combinations that are as ridiculous as words!”
“In the past, it was like a bear that only believed in the power that came out of the bulk, but when did you become equipped with such cunning? … I’m worried about the future.”
The truth that I cannot be loved by everyone was no exception, just because I was.
Because of the aftereffects of the turmoil in various parts of Europe that caused the last war to be prevented, there were two assassination attempts until I came to this stadium today.
‘Is it a good thing to say that the revolutionaries are still inexperienced?’
To answer the call of the Prince of Greece, he got up and looked around and waved his hand, but he had to worry about whether someone in the crowd suddenly put his hand in his arms.
Even though I knew that I had undergone intense body scouring in order to enter here today.
‘Probably the same thing that I walked the streets of Sevastopol last time to meet Trotsky will never be able to do it again.’
I was prepared to some extent, but I couldn’t help but feel bitter.
Because to be praised by someone was the same as to hate and curse on the other side.
Probably, to the populists, the nation is the object of hatred, which will be chewy.
Still, I wasn’t in a bad mood because there were things I got from this Olympics.
This was because the evaluation of the handicrafts sold near or inside the stadium, including the accommodations built in the traditional Russian style provided for the players, was not bad.
It seemed that if we went this way, we would be able to sell Russian products smoothly at the upcoming Paris Fair.
It may be a little less fresh because it was shown in advance at the Olympics, but based on this experience, I learned about the regrets I received from customers and the areas that can be supplemented.
“… … We also hope that the Olympics will not end as a single event, but will be a place for world peace that is held regularly. This is because I think that if the stage where players from all over the world can compete confidently and equitably with each other’s skills is uninterrupted and continues, that alone can take one step closer to world peace.”
Even so, before the closing ceremony, I was told how to hold the next Olympics in Russia at a meeting where he and Kubaartin, who is called the father of the modern Olympics, were met together, but there is no beginning.
At this point, when it is clear that the cost of hosting the Olympics will be far greater than the profits that can be earned, it is clear that we will only lose money for hosting the Olympics.
‘If it was originally, it would have been held together with the Paris Universal Exposition to be held in 1900, but I am wondering if it will continue the same after a year. Hmm.’
Well, even so, the Olympics were now out of my hands.
As long as I got everything I could get, the future of the upcoming Olympics was not my business.
“Hmm, hmm. The appreciation that Prince Constantinos has to His Majesty is quite big. Even in a place called the closing ceremony, it is enough to express gratitude in public.”
“It’s just a sign of undeserved gratitude for what I did. I haven’t done much, but I think my face will get hot with such a pitiful treatment.”
It was Prince Ferdinand, who became the successor of the Au-Hung Empire, who spoke to me, who was thinking about the future Olympics.
Even after I was invited to the Sergiev complex, a handicraft complex, the relationship between him and I, which has continued through empty meetings, was the result of attending the closing ceremony of the Olympics he would not have attended.
Even if this time I used all the resources I could use to stop the war for a while, it was an inevitable prophecy that a world war would come to the continent of Europe.
For me, knowing that a great war will occur in the near future, it was better for me to have a relationship with him.
No matter how close friendships between monarchs are alone, it is said that the time has come to prevent war.
“You didn’t do much. Isn’t it true that the negative public opinion about opening the Olympics has changed since your Majesty’s remark? Even the athletes who hesitated to participate by saying that they would provide lodging for the athletes, if the person who made them to participate in the Olympics said that he did not do much, what would be the person who showed his face at the closing ceremony like me? haha.”
“It is true that you say so. In fact, when I shared my share of the successful hosting of this Olympics, I was thinking that I would fall within at least three fingers. I was going to show you a humble figure, but when you come out like this, I can’t be wearing a mask.”
“Look at it. How regrettable are you to be honest.”
In that sense, meeting Ferdinand at this Olympics could be said to be an unexpected income.
Although it was under the assumption that he would not be ‘Sarajevo’.
“So, isn’t your Majesty one of the victims of the last African crisis?”
“Yes? Am I a victim? What do you mean by that.”
Huh? Have I ever been harmed by the last incident? No matter how much I think about it, it seems that I have only gained.
What happened without my knowledge?
When I showed an attitude that I didn’t know what I was talking about, Ferdinand made a face that I didn’t know why I couldn’t understand what I was saying.
No, I don’t know what I don’t know even with such a face.
When I saw his questionable face, I rolled my head to see what kind of damage it was, but the answer was the same.
After a moment of uncomfortable silence, Ferdinand was the one who opened his mouth first.
“The conversation going on with the Duke of Friedrichs. His Majesty said it would be a little unreasonable to get married now, when the continent of Europe could be engulfed in flames. Didn’t you say that it would be better to postpone the envy? At that time, it was said that Princess Isabella was incredibly disappointed. Fortunately, the wedding is scheduled to take place this fall, but your Majesty is also one of the victims whose marriage was delayed due to the last incident.”
Oh, and it turns out that, as he said, I was one of the people who suffered damage from this incident.
To improve relations with the Au-Hung Empire, I offered to marry the first daughter of the Friedrich family, but the very marriage that was struck by a question of what I had overlooked.
“Ah… … Ahaha, that’s right. That’s why I put more effort into fixing this case. I was entangled, so I had to pay attention. Still, thanks to the well-rounded case, we are fortunate to not harm the Friedrich family or others. Ha… … haha… … .”
“I knew it would. Isn’t it your Majesty’s marriage other than anyone else? I want to congratulate you in advance. I hope this combination will fill a little bit of the emotional gap between Russia and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.”
Fortunately, Ferdinand seemed to be convinced of what I was talking about.
It was a fortunate moment to consider that it would not seem fine that the married party had forgotten the marriage scheduled for months in the future.
As it was a marriage that had a lot of meaning from her mother, it seemed that she had avoided the situation from a new beginning.
“But this is purely my personal curiosity, but if it’s okay, can I just ask a question?”
While secretly exhaling a sigh of relief, Ferdinand seemed to have more of what he wanted to say to me.
“of course. As much as possible. What do you want to ask me?”
Filled with the thought that I had overcome the crisis, I answered with confidence.
Well, at best, it was because I thought you would ask me how much I was feeling as a senior about to get married.
“That, me, that’s what… … .”
Seeing Ferdinand, who was hesitating even though I said that I was okay, a mysterious sense of crisis came up.
However, it was strange to say that I would not be asked any questions, so I waited for him.
He hesitated after that, sighing as if he had finally made up his mind, closing and opening his eyes, and then opened his mouth in a tone of still hesitation.
“Is your Majesty your preference to be younger than older or same age? It’s a younger girl who is quite different in age.”
“… … .”
“Oh, no. I’m not saying it’s bad. I just asked because of my pure curiosity, but if you are offended, I apologize. You don’t have to worry about what I just said. In fact, are conditions important to marriage? The feeling of love is the most important. Wouldn’t it be? Like Your Majesty… … .”
Seeing I was silent, Ferdinand began to gibberish in order to mend, but his words didn’t get into my ears.
It seemed like an added image of myself that people who hate me in Europe could use.
