I believe they disliked Germany because of their war against Denmark over the territories of Schleswig, Holstein and Lauenberg.


I think Queen Louise was an amazing woman. The grandmother of Europe.

The first Christmas seal was sold in Denmark in 1904 and had the likeness of Queen Louise.

Could someone help me identifying who these persons exactly are?!

http://www.danculture.dk/wp-content/...0/IMG_3228.jpg

Is this Queen Louise with her grandchildren? Later King Haakon in naval suit in the back? Princess Maud of Wales?
Who is the boy reading and the smaller one watching?

I think the woman with the children is too young to be Queen Louise, grandmother. She may be her daughter in law Crown Princess Louise (who was a princess of Sweden) with some of the large family she had with the future King Frederik VIII of Denmark.

I agree that the older girl standing centre back has the look of one of the Wales princesses, but it's odd if she's paying a visit to Denmark that she was included in the family portrait and not any of her siblings. One of the other girls, in semi-profile has a nose like Louise of Sweden. The couple had eight children didn't they?
