Today is the 20th anniversary of the death of Queen Ingrid of Denmark.





Ingrid was born to the future King Carl Gustav VI Adolf of Sweden and his wife Margaret of Connaught March 28, 1910. She was her parents' third child of five. Her full name was Ingrid Victoria Sofia Louise Margareta. She had 12 godparents including her living grandparents, and her great-grandmother Sophie of Nassau. Her middle names paid homage to her grandmothers/godmothers Victoria of Baden, Louise of Prussia and Sophie of Nassau. And of course her own mother.

She married Crown Prince Frederick of Denmark in 1935.



Her husband died in 1972.

When Ingrid died she was surrounded by her three daughters and her ten grandchildren. She was buried with her husband in Roskilde Cathedral November 14, 2000.

She now has 3 daughters (Margarethe II, Anne Marie of Greece and Benedikte), 10 grandchildren (2 from Margarethe, 5 from Anne Marie and 3 from Benedikte) and 21 great grandchildren (8 from Margaretha, 4 from Benedikte and 9 from Anne Marie). And one living son in law, Constantine.

She was also the Aunt of King Carl Gustaf and his sisters, the children of her eldest brother.

November 30, 1699 birth of Christian VI

Christian was the son of Frederick IV. His father had come to the throne only months before his birth, in August after his grandfather Christian V died from a hunting accident. His mother was Frederick's first wife Louise of Mecklenberg-Gustrow. Her parents had two children who survived infancy, Christian and his sister Charlotte Amalie who never married. He was the second born, but his elder brother died in infancy. His mother died in 1721. His father had a son Frederick with Elisabeth von Vieregg who he entered a bigamous relationship with during Louise's life (Elisabeth died in 1704). In 1721 after the death of Louise he legally married Anne Sophie Reventlow who he had been in a second bigamous relationship with for years. They had six children, though the first three died in infancy before their parents were legally married.

Christian was well educated, especially compared to his father and grandfather. Though he knew Danish he spoke and wrote every day in German.


His father allowed him the freedom to seek his own wife. During a tour of Europe his choice fell on Sophie Magdalene of Brandenburg-Kulmbach. Sophie was a lady in waiting to the Polish queen at the time, having been raised at the court. She was not a match in rank to the Danish Crown Prince, her family's holdings small and highly in debt, with 13 siblings.


But Christian's father granted permission for his son to marry Sophie. They were married August 7, 1721 in Saxony. She was 21, and he nearing 22.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie...-Magdalene.jpg


His father died in 1730 after injuries from a cannon explosion. Before his death his father asked him to respect his stepmother Anne Sophie and protect her. But Christian resented the woman, the bigamous relationship his father had carried on, which had caused his mother Louise great pain. Christian stripped her of her estates, and denied her the title Queen dowager. He granted her an allowance but she spent the rest of her life in basic house arrest. He did relent when she died to allow for proper mourning and to be buried at Roskilde. But not enough to allow her or her children to be buried with his father. He purchased a chapel in the cathedral for her and her children to be buried in.



He was crowned June 6, 1731.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ..._VI,_1731..JPG


He and his wife were known for many of their building projects during his reign. Of course the best known of these is Christianborg palace. The original palace was mainly destroyed in 1794 but some of the original buildings that survived were incorporated into the second, and now the third palace of the name (the palace was destroyed twice by fire).


The current palace (where some remains are still from the original)

The one they built stands in full to this day is the Hermitage Hunting Lodge

Christian was never in the best of health ever since childhood. Sadly he died August 6, 1746, the day before his silver wedding anniversary. He was buried in Roskilde Cathedral. His monument was not installed until 1777.

His widow would live until 1770. She lived to see their grandson Christian VII come to the throne. She played a more prominant role in the reign of her grandson then in her son's reign as she didn't have a great relationship with her children. But she was quite close to her grandchildren.


Christian and Sophie had three children, though only 2 made it from infancy.

-Frederick: succeeded his father as Frederick V. Married twice, first to Louise of Great Britain (daughter of George II) with whom he had four children to reach adulthood, including one son Christian VII (his first born son died in infancy). His second marriage was to Juliana Maria of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel who bore him one son Frederick.

-Louise: died at six months old.

-Louise: (born 2 years after the death of her older sister of that name). She married Ernest Frederick III, Duke of Saxe-Hildburghausen. She was only married for a year before she died, and had one daughter who died a month after birth. She may have had a child from a scandalous affair with a servant before her marriage.

The queen was buried firstly at the Gråbrødre Klosterkirke in Odense but in 1805 that church was demolished and her remains were reinterred at Odense Cathedral.

December 12, 1995 death of Princess Caroline Mathilde of Denmark. If Danish law of succession was not changed, she would have been Queen Consort.

https://i2.wp.com/www.unofficialroya...e-mathilde.jpg


Caroline was born a Princess of Denmark. Her father Prince Harald was a son of Frederick VIII. Her father was the younger brother of Christian X (her future father in law) and Haakon VII of Norway. Her mother was Princess Helena Adelaide of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg. On her mother's side she was the cousin of Princess Sibylla of Sweden (Carl Gustaf's mother). She was the second of their five children, with two sisters and two brothers.

Caroline-Mathilde was born April 27, 1912 in Jægersborghus, the house her parents bought in 1907. She was named for her maternal grandmother.

September 8, 1933 she was married to her cousin Knud, Hereditary Prince of Denmark. The bride was 21 and her groom and first cousin was 33. Knud was the second son of Christian X who was on the throne at the time. They lived at Sorgenfri Palace.

https://royalwatcherblog.com/2019/09...line-mathilde/


Her father in law and Uncle died in April 1947. Her brother in law became Frederick IX. Frederick and his wife Ingrid of Sweden had three daughters so Knud was heir presumptive. In 1953 the law of succession was changed to allow a female to inherit. Knud found himself replaced as heir to the throne by his 13 year old niece Margrethe. Her husband resented the change in succession and caused a lot of family tension for years.


Her husband died in 1976 and was buried in Roskilde cathedral. She would out live her husband by 19 years. She died at their home and was buried next to her husband.





The couple had three children:

-Princess Elisabeth: she never married. She did live for years with her partner though Clause Hermansen until his death in 1997. She lived at her parents palace and was often at royal events. She was a diplomat with the foreign service. She sadly died in 2018.

-Prince Ignolf: he lost his title and place in succession when he chose to marry in 1968 without royal permission. His Uncle wouldn't grant it, despite Knud trying to convince his brother, as his wife was a commoner. He has been married twice, his first wife dying but he has no children from either wife. He has been Count Ignolf of Rosenborg. He and his wife attend events like royal weddings. Unlike his sister who remained in line for succession, and his brother, he receives an allowance.

-Prince Christian: Like his brother he lost his right to succession and is Count Christian of Rosenborg. His wife Countess Anne and he had Caroline-Mathilde's only grandchildren, three daughters. Like his brother he did attend events like Fred and Mary's wedding. He died in 2013 and his wife in 2014.

December 24, 1879 birth of Alexandrine of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Queen consort of Christian X.

https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/ne...mbed_Pinterest

She was born in the city of Schwerin. Her father was Frederick Francis III, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Her mother was Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia. Her mother was a granddaughter of Tsar Nicholas I by his youngest child Michael (4th son and 7th child). She was the eldest of three children of her parents. Her brother would succeed their father as Frederick Francis IV. Her sister Cecilie married Wilhelm, German Crown Prince of Prussia (eldest son of Wilhelm II). She was likely named after her father's paternal grandmother Princess Alexandrine of Prussia.

She was first cousins with Queen Juliana of the Netherlands as Juliana's father Prince Henry was the younger half-brother of Frederick Francis (their father was married three times, Frederick was the first child by the first marriage, Henry was the youngest child of the third marriage). She was also first cousins with Princess Elena, Princess Nicholas of Greece and Denmark (mother of Princess Marina of Kent) on her father's side as well.

She met her future husband when she was in Cannes. Due to her father's ill health the family often spent their time in the Riviera for the climate. Her mother had a bed reputation for her attitude, her lifestyle. Her father died in 1897 and her mother had a love child with Vladimir Alexandrovich Paltov after his death. Despite concern their mother's reputatiin may hurt their chances at good matches, both her daughters made impressive marriages.


Her husband was then Prince Christian of Denmark, eldest son and heir of Frederick VIII of Denmark. His younger siblings included the future Haakon VII of Norway and Ingeborg (mother of Queen Astrid of Belgium and CP Martha of Norway).They were married in Cannes April 26, 1898. The bride was 18 and the groom 29. Theirs was reportedly a very happy loving marriage, one where they were devoted to one another until her husband died.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-AYMiFZC_VT...+wedding-2.jpg


The couple were given Marselisborg Palace as a gift from the people though not complete until 1902. Christian VIII's palace was their base in Copenhagen but they also made frequent use of Sorgenfri palace. They traveled extensively, often visiting Cannes where they had fallen in love.

She was shy and not big on the ceremony and public events. She was an avid gardener and a passionate patron of the arts. She shared her love for the arts with her son Frederick.

At the time of their marriage her father in law was only Crown Prince of Denmark. He ascended the throne in 1906 on the death of his father Christian IX. The couple then became Crown prince and princess of Denmark. Her husband would succeed the throne as Christian X on the death of his own father in 1912. His father had been on his way home from Nice with his wife and several of his children when he died in Hamburg.

During WWII Alexandrine proved her loyalty to her adopted country and not that of her birth. She dedicated her time to several relief organizations. She managed to save the Danish royal jewels by hiding them in churches and farms from the Nazis and their looting. Her and husband were both lauded for their devotion to their people during the war.

Her husband sadly died in 1947. Unlike queens before her, she didn't use the title Queen Dowager, she was simply Queen Alexandrine. Her son Frederick succeeded the throne as Frederick IX.


Alexandrine died five years later in 1952, 4 days after her 73rd birthday. She had undergone intestinal surgery less then two weeks before her death. She was buried next to her husband.

Alexandrine and her husband had two sons.

-Frederick: succeeded his father as Frederick IX of Denmark. He married Princess Ingrid of Sweden. They had three children. Thanks to a change in succession laws he was succeeded by his daughter Margrethe II.

-Knud: married his cousin Caroline-Mathilde of Denmark. They had three children, one daughter and two sons.


The couple lived to see the birth of all their grandchildren. A photo of the royal couple with their six grandchidlren.

December 25, 1461 birth of Christina of Saxony, Queen of Denmark.

Christina was born in Torgau Saxony. Her father was Ernst, Elector of Saxony. Her mother was Elizabeth of Bavaria. Christina was the eldest of their seven children, six of whom reached adulthood (their youngest died young). She had four brothers and one sister.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ...hoto_2009).jpg

Christina was engaged at the age of 16 to 22 year old John of Denmark. John was the eldest son and heir of Christian I of Denmark. In 1478 she was escorted to Copenhagen. They married September 6, 1478 in the cathedral. The couple became king and queen in 1481 with the death of his father in law.

The couple preferred to spend their time away from the capital, Nykoping castle being a favorite of the queen.


In 1499 they were crowned king and queen of Sweden. During the Dano-Swedish war her husband left Sweden in 1501. He left Christina behind in Sweden as she was ill. When she eventually surrendered to Sten Sture the agreement was that she would be transferred to a convent where she would remain until she could be returned to Denmark. Unfortunately when John sent a ship to retrieve his wife the Swedes betrayed their agreement and sent Christina Vadstenna abbey as a form of imprisonment. It wasnt until October 1503 that Sten finally kept his word and he escorted her to the Danish border himself where she was met by her son Christian.

In 1504 after a visit to her daughter in Brandenberg, on her return home she founded several convents of the Poor Clares.

After her return from Sweden, Christina lived apart from her husband, having her own small court. She lived in her dower lands in Odense with her son Frans. Though her court was lively with visitors, her husband almost never visited.

In 1513 she was widowed when her husband died after being thrown from his horse. He was succeeded by their son Christian II.

She died December 8, 1521 at the age of 59 weeks short of her 60th birthday.

They had five children (perhaps 6 but one is disputed). The eldest 2 died young.

-Hans: died young

-Ernst died young


-Christian: succeeded his father as Christian II.Married Isabella of Austria. They had three children who survived infancy and two who reached adulthood. He was exiled and replaced on the throne by his Uncle Frederick I.

-Elizabeth: married Joachim I Nestor, Elector of Brandenburg. She bore her husband five children who all reached adulthood.

-Francis: died at the age of 14.
