King of Denmark 20 April 1947 - 13 January 1972
Re: The question is still...
Don't you think that the 2009 change to Absolute Primogeniture would have changed Agnatic to Cognatic primogeniture all at the same time?
Would the 2009 change have limited succession to the descendants of King Christian X and Queen Alexandrine as it did in 1953?
...If Ingolf hadn't sired any male heirs and the Act of Succession hadn't been altered in 1953, who would have been Ingolf's heir? The Norwegians or the Greeks?
But would King Christian XI have denied his son the right to marry who he loved after their Norwegian Cousins had paved the way?
Well, both Ingolf and Christian got married while Frederik IX was still alive - but we can't of course know how long they would have waited to marry if they had been required to find royal/noble/foreign brides.
Exactly. And I am sure that the Thronefollower, Prince Knud would have had quite a say in this since Frederik would know that this was the new line.
Was't Frederik's decicison not to approve the marriages a forward thinking way of limiting the number of "distant" princes and princesses not very close to the Royal House? Much what we are seeing to house.
