Origin
Amalia Greek costume, a Greek women's costume that originated with Queen Amalia of Oldenburg (who arrived in Greece during 1837), who actually created the costume by drawing on romantic folksy court dress inspired by Greek tradional dress and the Biedermeier style. It became a national Greek costume, and the dress became the usual attire worn by Christian Greek townswomen
