King of Denmark 20 April 1947 - 13 January 1972
So far the episodes haven't showed anything about Denmark, just Sweden and how King Gustav V was more than happy to have Pss.Martha out of his country, pushing her to accept a regency in name of the boy king Olav.
My question is about Pss.Martha's eldest sister Pss.Margaretha.
Did the Axel's remain in Denmark during the German occupation ?
Were they particularly bullied by the germans (compared to the danish RF) due to their relation to the norwegian RF ?
If you scroll down the page to April 5th you can see that Pamela brought it up for discussion. I saw a couple of episodes only.
Yesterday, RTP 2 in Portugal, aired the first of 8 episodes of this series, that tells the story of the German invasion of Norway in WW2, the escape of Crown-Princess Martha to the USA and her friendship to President Roosevelt. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/shows/atlantic-crossing/
I wasn't aware of this series and have never heard any comments about it.
From what I watched yesterday, I was very well impressed, and looking forward for the next episodes.
I found particulary amazing the lookalikeness between Crown-Prince Olav and the actor Tobias Santelmann.
What's the general impression of other posters about this series ?
