In the Royal Familyin 1933? I would say it is not unlikely. But I dont know.

Anyone know if there are some new plans for their estate Sogenfri? I know it was under renovation a few years ago but from what I understod that was only the outside?

First cousins, yes. Knud's father, Christian X and Caroline-Mathilde's father, Harald, were brothers.

I don't know if it was usual doing, but King Olav of Norway (whose father, Haakon, was also a brother to Christian X and Harald) married his cousin (whose mother was the sister to Christian X, Harald and Haakon.) So, it happened.

Their sons were also born princes of Denmark but they were created counts of Rosenborg due to marriages of commoners. Princess Elisabeth never married despite the fact that she lived with a man for many many years before he died. In Denmark it is said that she never married because she would then loose her title - the same situation princess Alexandra faces now... Because they were born princes count Christian and count Ingolf are knights of the Elephant and count Ingolf is still on the civil list... Princess Elisabeth worked for many years for the U.N. as she is fluent in many languages...

It was pointed out to me sometime that without the change in the constitution in 1953, you would currently have Ingolf on the throne - who is childless, and after him his brother, Christian, who has three girls (who wouldn't have had any right to the throne.) After them, the nearest male would be King Harald of Norway.

Of course, who Ingolf and Christian might've married may not have been the same if they'd been more directly in line at the time of marriage.

And since the constitution was changed in '53, and Margrethe's proven to be an excellent monarch, it's just contrafactual thinking...

I was, however, oddly reminded by this situation in Denmark - the king having only girls, when I read a few news-articles on the proposed changes in the Japanese succession rules a few months back. Knud had sons, and Frederik didn't. The Danish monarchy goes way back, like the Japanese, and still the Danes changed their constitutions, even as there were viable male heirs.

Princes Margrethe was more popular then Prins Knud and the change of the succesion was used to carry other constitutional changes through.

The constitution was not changed solely for that purpose, but the succession issue was used to drag people to the polls. It is extremely difficult to change the danish constitution. :)

It is not tru..the nearest male heir woud be CrownPrince Frederik because he is in direct line of King Christian10. and his wife Queen Alexandrine.
King Harald of Norway is way way out in the line of claim about the Crown her in Denmark that is the same thing for his children.

It says that King Harald and his children woud never be candidate for the crown of Denmark because the heir has to be in direct line from King Christian 10. and his wife Queen Alexandrine. The Law is from 1953 and in that time King Frederik9.,Queen Alexandrine,Prince Knud was alive and Count Ingolf and Christian was still princes of Denmark until their marriede their wifes and became Counts of Rosenborg.


Arverækkefølgen i kongehuset er bestemt i tronfølgeloven (lov nr. 170 af 27. marts 1953)
Tronen nedarves indenfor kong Christian X og dronning Alexandrines efterslægt. Ved en konges død overgår tronen til hans søn eller datter, således at søn går forud for datter, og hvis der er flere børn af samme køn, går den ældste forud for den yngre. Hvis kongen ikke har arveberettigede børn ved sin død, overgår tronen til hans søster eller broder med fortrin for broder. Således ser arverækkefølgen ud i dag:

1. Kronprins Frederik
2. Prins Joachim
3. Prins Nicolai
4. Prins Felix
5. Prinsesse Benedikte
6. Prinsesse Elisabeth

Når kronprins Frederik får børn, vil de automatisk træde ind før prins Joachim og hans børn. Kronprinsens kommende børn vil således komme øverst i tronfølger-rækkefølgen. Derudover kan det læses i tronfølgerloven, som findes nederst i dette dokument, at kronprinsens eventuelle sønner vil have forret til tronen i forhold til hans eventuelle døtre. Dvs. at hvis kronprinsen først får en datter, som efterfølgende får en lillebror, vil det være lillebroderen der bliver kronprins og ikke den ældste datter.

Udover prinsesse Benedikte har Dronning Margrethe en anden søster, prinsesse Anne-Marie. Hun gled dog ud af arvefølgen, da hun giftede sig med eks-kong Konstantin.

Tronfølgerloven:
Vi Frederik den Niende, af Guds Nåde Konge til Danmark, de Venders og Goters, Hertug til Slesvig, Holsten, Stormarn, Ditmarsken, Lauenborg og Oldenborg, Gør vitterligt: Rigsdagen har vedtaget og Vi ved Vort samtykke stadfæstet følgende lov:

§ 1. Tronen nedarves indenfor kong Christian X og dronning Alexandrines efterslægt.

§ 2. Ved en konges død overgår tronen til hans søn eller datter, således at søn går forud for datter, og i tilfælde af, at der er flere børn af samme køn, den ældre går forud for den yngre.

Er et af kongens børn afgået ved døden, træder vedkommendes afkom i dets sted efter linealfølgen og de i stk. 1 fastsatte regler.

§ 3. Dør en konge uden at efterlade sig til tronen arveberettiget afkom, overgår tronen til hans broder eller søster med fortrin for broder. Har kongen flere søskende af samme køn, eller er nogen af hans søskende afgået ved døden, finder reglerne i § 2 tilsvarende anvendelse.

§ 4. Er der ingen arveberettigede i henhold til bestemmelserne i §§ 2 og 3, overgår tronen til den derefter nærmeste sidelinie indenfor kong Christian X og dronning Alexandrines efterslægt efter linealfølgen og med tilsvarende fortrin for mænd fremfor kvinder og for ældre fremfor yngre som fastsat i §§ 2 og 3.

§ 5. Kun børn født i lovligt ægteskab har arveret til tronen.

Til kongens indgåelse af ægteskab udfordres rigsdagens samtykke.

Indgår en til tronen arveberettiget person ægteskab uden kongens i statsrådet givne samtykke, mister den pågældende arveretten til tronen for sig og de i ægteskabet fødte børn og disses afkom.

§ 6. Bestemmelserne i §§ 2-5 finder tilsvarende anvendelse i tilfælde af, at en konge frasiger sig tronen.

§ 7. Denne lov træder i kraft samtidig med Danmarks Riges Grundlov af 5. juni 1953.

Givet på Amalienborg, den 27. marts 1953.
Under Vor Kongelige Hånd og Segl.
Frederik R.
