Title Prince

Prince Mikkos Ivanovich Cassadine[2][1] was a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital.

He was portrayed by John Colicos in 1981.

Background

Mikkos Cassadine was a Greco-Russian aristocrat. The Cassadine family are descendants of the Russian aristocracy, with connections to the royal Romanov family. They existed for hundreds of years in Russia until the Bolshevik Revolution forced them to flee to Greece. After that period, they built a large economic empire of power and wealth.

Mikkos and wife Helena Cassadine had two children, Stefan and Stavros. He also had an affair with Kristin Bergman, an opera singer, and had two daughters, Natasha and Kristina. Kristin was murdered in front of her daughter Alexis by a jealous Helena. In 2009, Helena revealed that Mikkos had another illegitimate son named Valentin, who was disowned.

In 1981, Mikkos made his only on screen appearances on General Hospital when he was the mastermind behind a plot to attain world domination by holding the world to ransom through the use of a weather machine that could create a severe snowstorm and he claimed it was for a utopia, a perfect world. He never allowed anyone to see his experiments. He fought with Luke and died in the freezer.

Nevertheless, the spectre of Mikkos still features prominently in storylines of General Hospital as his daughter, Alexis Davis, son Valentin Cassadine, grandchildren Sam McCall, Nikolas Cassadine, Kristina Corinthos-Davis, and Molly Lansing-Davis and great-grandchildren Spencer Cassadine and Danny Morgan are still a part of the show.
