Was he the one that did not get along with Marie Feodorovna of Russia? I know she stayed with one of the Christian's after the revolution, and they fought tooth and nail.

Maria Feodorovna would have been his aunt. It's possible. Can someone verify this?

I just saw one of the "A Royal Family: The Father In Law of Europe" episodes. I recall it said that she was extremely hard to get along with - one incident, something about saving electricity [Chris X] [?] Marie did the opposite and turned all the lights on in a palace [?]

Yes, Marie Feodorvna was the younger sister of Christian's father, King Frederik VIII. She had been christened Princess Dagmar in Denmark and had been betrothed to the Russian tsarevich, Nicholas, while a young girl. Nixa died and Dagmar married his younger brother, later to become Alexander III. She changed her name to Marie Feodorovna at that time.

It is one episode of their relationship, that is often brought into the light.

Marie/Dagmar was most likely used to the wealth/power she'd had in Russia. Denmark at the time, however, was not a wealthy country, and I've read, in the biography about Frederik IX, that the King even chose to get less money from the state than he'd done before - possibly as to not incite the people's ire.

The story goes something like this:

King Christian X, irritated at the Dowager Empress, send a messanger to tell her that if she was not going to be in every room of her suite if she would please turn off the lights. Seeing as the Dowager had company and was very much embarresed she sent her footman to "turn on every light in the wing" and he did. From the attic to the cellar.

Christian X made a speech in August of 1943 against the occupying forces which resulted in his imprisonment for the remainder of the war. Does anyone know here I can find a copy of this speech? Preferably in English but I can translate it if I have to. Thanks!

I think he was a wonderfully brave man for what he did. The story of the King and the Star of David is remarkable.

Alexandrine was more lucky than her sister Cecilia (Cecilienhof), her husband Christian became King of Danemark and the Crown-Prince Wilhelm of Prussia never became emperor.
I have 4 questions
1) Was Christian X faithful to his wife ?
2) Did Christian X know that the heir of Danemark would be Margareta and not
Ingolf , Prince Knuds'son ?
3) normally Frederic succeeds a Christian , like now .
Ingolf was not a heir's surname but Margarete well, the danes venerate their Queen Margarethe I, (Roskild church)
4) Did Ingrid and Frederic IX thought they should have only one child ??
Thanks for answer

Hi Maria-Olivia (:

1) I believe that Christian was faithful, I haven't heard any stories of Christian cheeting on his wife.
4) I don't think so, I believe that they were very disappointed not to get a boy ...
Hope that you could use the answers (:
