: compliments of H.M. Dronningen!How fitting
: for the 'king'!
: BTW I didn't realize there were Burger
: King's in Denmark.
: I still can't fathom how someone of Henrik's
: position, per his wife, can demand or expect
: to be elevated to a title and style late in
: his wife's reign. If ever this was to go in
: effect, i.e., 'king consort' concept, it
: should have been addressed prior to his
: wife's accession that her husband would be
: styled the same, H.M., with the title of
: 'king consort'. However, this subject, ad
: nauseum, has been discussed that owing to
: conventions established in other monarchies
: that the consort/spouse of a queen regnant
: is of lower rank, e.g., prince/duke, than
: she. I can only guess that this particular
: convention was established to emphasize the
: authority of the female sovereign because of
: the traditional aspects of authority the
: title 'king' entails.
