Re: Official Protest by Prince Knud in 1953
I don't think there would be much doubt that the succession law would have been changed at a later stage, so that Josephine would have replaced her father, Christian af Rosenborg, as Throne Follower in 2013.
Prince Knud had two sons - Ingolf and Christian - and neither of them had male children. If the 1953 law had never been implemented to allow women to succeed, who would be King of Denmark in this future after "King Ingolf" passes?
I think that Dag can give a correct answer, but I know that several dynasts lost their successional rights because of the law of 1953. I don't know if Prince Carl (Haakon VII) renounced his successional rights when he was elected King of Norway. If not, I guess that King Harald would have been King of Denmark now. But if the Norwegians didn't have successional rights, the heirs to the throne should be found in the Greek Royal House. That would have made Constantine King of Denmark If a Greek-Orthodox Royal could be allowed to accede to the throne.
Prince Ingolf probably have married with consent if the law had not been changed. Probably his brother as well. Ingolf was not able to have children but presumably Prince Christian would have had children. There was also the change in the Succession Law in 2009 so there is a possibility the heir would be the eldest child of Prince Christian.
