Re: THE QUESTION IS STILL...
Constantine of Greece, who is lacking a throne, would be ideal for that reason, and in adddition he is married to a Danish Princess. Furthermore his oldest son has a good number of sons too.
I recall having seen old copies of Billed-Bladet from the late 1940's with lists of Greek Princess who were in line to the throne after Knud and his sons.
It is quite possible that the Succession rules would have been changed later, but the question was what would have happened if it hadn't been changed and everything else had been the same. Would King Olav V of Norway have been the heir? Or did Haakon VII renounce his successional rights to the Danish throne when he became King of Norway?
that means neither the Norwegians nor the Greeks are ruled out by the Danish constitution.
From the Norwegian Constitution: "The King may not accept any other crown or government without the consent of the Storting, for which two thirds of the votes are required."
