I am doing my Ancestry and have come across Royalty. I'm finding Ruling Queens marring Princes or dukes or a titled person from another country. Then they list them as King of her country. Is this how it was back then, the man took over from his wife the queen or is it an error? Would he be King consort? Is there such a thing as King consorts?
If not what would they have been called?
Joachim I Nestor King consort of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Brandenburg, Elector of Germany 1484-1535
Elisabeth Queen of Denmark Sweden Norway 1485-1555
