Re: New DR series: "Hvorfor er Ludwig ikke konge"
Thank you, Torkel. It sounds like a far-fetched fluff piece-
Danish newspaper BT has an article: https://www.bt.dk/royale/19-aarige-ludvig-kunne-vaere-blevet-danmarks-konge-nu-taler-han-om-det-tabte
There appears to be nothing new. They refer to interviews by Count Ingolf where he says something about his father being unhappy about the decision but not bitter.
The idea that Ludwig af Rosenborg could be a future king rests on the premise that the law was not changed to permit female succession, yet he would only have succeeded through his mother.
My impression is that young Ludwig, an aspiring dancer, is happy about the attention this programme give, yet he does not actually make any claims himself.
As I am unable to access this series, I am asking those who do what it is about. Is it just some silliness or does it actually reveal something that was not known before?
It seems odd that this series should commence right when Count Ingolf celebrates his 80th birthday, or is this coincidental.
