That about covers it, IMO, however on a forum like this a lively exchange is always better than going through an old, dusty thread!

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #52, 2013.

Where a B.I. Bering would like to know whether Frederik IX really was a talented conductor.

Jon Bloch Skipper replies that he was. In fact he was very good!
He received lessons from early on by the musical director of the Royal Theatre, Georg Høberg, who said about his pupil: “If the King hadn’t been born for his high office, he would have become one of the best conductors in Denmark. Of that I’ve never had a moments doubt”.
Frederik IX mostly conducted private concert but also went public a couple of times. QMII said about her father conducting: “When he stood on his rostrum and it went well, we in the family always said: You can tell from dad’s back that he’s happy”.
Frederik IX was indeed very fond of music. No less than 92 protections were related to music.

After completing his basic education, Frederik entered the Royal Danish Naval Academy.
By the time he became the King of Denmark, he had several senior commands on active service.
Frederik had attained the rank of Rear Admiral.

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #20, 2016.

Where Jonna Carlsen would like to know whether it is true that Frederik IX was actively helped to die. (*)

Jon Bloch Skipper responds that this may originate in an article written by in a DK very well known GP, who answered questions from readers and wrote about illnesses in a way ordinary people could understand.
With typical morbid humor the staff at Rigshospitalet where Frederik IX was committed towards the end called his room Finderup Barn (**)
The doctor, Erik Münster wrote some twenty years ago:
But that is not to be seen as an indication that Frederik IX didn't receive the right treatment. But that they allowed the King to find peace, since the treatment wouldn't be able to keep him alive much longer. - It was in full accordance with the ethical rules of the time.
- Frederik IX's health was poor. Too much tobacco (and alcohol) had weakened his heart, he had smoker's lungs, chronical inflammation in his windpipe and at the end also a blod-cloth.

(*) Don't know the expression in the various languages but here in DK it's called actively assisted help to die. I.e. being given an overdose or something similar.

(**) The place of the undoubtedly most well-known assassination of a Danish king, back in 1286 - and there have been quite a few!
The story is still endlessly fascinating because it is to this day still not clear who was behind the assassination. And how the assassination was planned and carried out is literally worth a thriller!
I've often wondered about writing about it here on TRF, but I doubt if would interest more than three readers.

One of our famous composers, Peter Heise, wrote an opera about it: The King and the (Lord) Marshal. Or in Danish: Drot og Marsk.

It is called euthanasia in English. It is derived from a Greek expression meaning "good death".

Thanks, Blog Real.

A series worth watching.

And some of you may flip through the footage here in there and see why (or indeed if) M&F are so often compared to Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid.

I'm actually watching an episode of the portrait series of Frederik IX and QMII has just told a wonderful anecdote from the late 40's.

An early morning when Frederik IX (then CP, and acting very much as a full-time Regent due to Christian X being in poor health) couldn't sleep he opened the bedroom window and looked down in the garden, where two guardsmen were sitting on the edge of the sandbox. (At the time there were also sentries in the gardens at Amalienborg). There came an "ahem" from Frederik IX and two red-faced guardsmen jumped to attention!
He asked for their names and numbers and the two guardsmen were more or less melting. Because negligence of guard-duty could mean prison.

Later that day they were called by their duty officer to appear before Frederik IX at his office... - It must have been a long walk for the two of them...
At the office Frederik IX told them that since they were so fond of that sandbox they could go down in the garden and play with Princess Margrethe for half an hour. And added: "And then we'll talk no more of this. but You are not doing it again"!

- A typical navy-solution.
King Christian X, who was very much an army man, would have ripped their heads off!
