Erik III is indeed the only Danish king to abdicate and that was because he after an accident or illness became lame to at least some extent. Certainly enough for him to be unable to perform his duties as king, which back then meant that he had to be mobile.
There was no capital in the (then much larger) Danish realm, so the king and as such the government and state administration was constantly on the move.

He certainly did not look anything like the person depicted in the official painting!

This mans hairstyle and beard was fashionable in the 1600's. The armor is at least from the late 1300's onwards.
