It all starts with a question as to why we celebrate birthdays.

And, at least in DK, it's a relatively new phenomenon, introduced after the Reformation in 1536.
Before then name-days were celebrated, that was based on Catholic traditions. And on name-days you were send a knot-letter. Such a letter contained either a knot, which you had to untie or a riddle, and if you couldn't then yu had to invite the one who send you the letter to a little feast or give him/her a present.
But after the Reformation, such traditions were discarded as being Catholic, so instead a Prostestant German tradition about celebrating the annual day for your birth was adopted. - And it was in fact brought to Denmark by the DRF. The DRF picked most of their queens and princesses from Germany at that time.
It is known that the DRF celebrated birthdays at least as early as the 1600's.
Interesting that it was considered a Catholic tradition. Any idea why the Swedish RF (I don't know if others do so) celebrate nameday, in spite of being protestant?

Sorry, no.

Perhaps someone in the SRF-forums knows?

Here is a map of places in DK where the Danish king have been buried: http://videnskab.dk/sites/all/files/...ve_danmark.jpg

In recent centuries the majority of kings have been buried at Roskilde Cathedral and that is where QMII is to be buried or rather entombed as well.

There is one peculiarity regarding Danish kings though. If they died from natural causes they were shipped to whatever place they wished to be buried, however if the were killed, they were buried locally.
That is the case with say Erik Klipping, who was murdered and buried ner the town of Viborg. (That is no doubt the most famous assassination in Danish history and to this day still hotly debated) . That is also the case with Svend Grathe who was killed after a battle.

Here you go: Hvor er de danske konger begravet? | Videnskab.dk

And I saved the map to my own account, so it won't go missing again.

The Danish Royal tombs at Roskilde Cathedral,I have to say I do not like the space age sarcophagus for H.M.The Queen it looks so out of place in a historic cathedral.

I think it's ok. All sarcophagi are very different in style and represent their time.
