Prince Valdemar was offered two European thrones, those of Bulgaria and Norway. He declined them due to international pressures.
Which throne was Valdemar offered first: Bulgaria or Norway?

In 1896 Princess Marie wrote:

Ofcourse anything found on the internet should be taken with a grain of salt (including a lot on these forums ) but this might be an interesting read on the subject

Sorry for being picky but since when are the Battenbergs a morganatic branch of the House of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha?

It was interesting to learn that Prince Valdemar's father, Christian IX declined that Valdemar should accept the Bulgarian throne.

It's hardly surprising that Bulgaria was declined. It would have put Valdemar into direct conflict with his older brother – not favourable for any of the people involved. I actually recall reading in En kongelig familie (2004) that it was Valdemar himself who declined the throne, but I reckon it was a mutual decision between Christian IX and him.
