King of Denmark Frederik VIII (1910)


Danish royalty who reigned as King from 1906 to 1912.

Before his accession to the throne at age 62, he served as crown prince for 43 years. During the long reign of his father, King Christian IX, he was largely excluded from influence and political power.

Crown Prince Frederik married Louise of Sweden at the Royal Palace in Stockholm on 28 July 1869. The couple resided at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen, spending the summers at Charlottenlund Palace north of the city. They had four sons and four daughters. The marriage was not a happy one.

Frederik died on a park bench in Hamburg on the evening of 14 May 1912 while taking a walk. His cause of death was announced as a paralysis-attack.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Tak for dansen, Louise: det første glücksborgske kongepar og hele deres europæiske slægt (Lindhardt og Ringhof, 2003), p. 38: "Og pinselørdag, 3. juni 1843, kan kongen skrive i sin dagbog: “I dag kl. 1 fødte min niece Louise, Christian Glücksborgs gemalinde, en søn. Det skrev jeg om til min søn, kronprinsen.” Louise har født en søn før kronprinsesse Mariane."

Translation: On Pentecost Saturday, 3 June 1843, the king wrote in his diary: "Today at 1 (a.m.) my niece Louise, Christian Glücksborg's consort, gave birth to a son. That I wrote about my son, the crown prince." Louise gave birth to a son before Crown Princess Mariane.
