1905-2005, January biography: Maud

On November 26th, 1869, the Princess of Wales gave birth to a girl. On Christmas Eve the same year the girl was christened and received the names Maud Charlotte Mary Victoria. She would be known as Maud.

Maud had four older brothers and sisters, Albert Victor, born in 1864, George Frederick Ernest Albert, born in 1865, Louise, born in 1867 and Victoria, born in 1868.

Her young life was spent at Sandringham with her brothers and sisters. They travelled to Balmoral, and Denmark in the summers. But their time was mostly spent at home.

She was tutored at home, in everything a proper young royal girl was expected to know, including reception of important persons.

Her life was calm, and she was particularly interested in painting, woodwork, and animals. She was also interested in sports, and she rode nearly every day. She also played tennis, participated in cricket and hunting. Maud was nicknamed Harry by her family, after her father’s friend, Admiral Harry Keppel, who was renowned for his courage.

The British people had their own nickname for her: Her Royal Shyness, because of her shyness and modesty in public.

There is a rumour that she has written a play under the pseudonym Graham Irving. King Olav said that while he had never had it confirmed or denied, he doubted it. But his mother enjoyed the speculation around it. “They can never be sure if I’ve written it, or not,” she said.

In 1893 Maud made her first visit to Norway. With her mother and her sister Victoria, they were visiting the Norwegian nature, but also had time to visit the capital Christiania. When in Christiania, they visited the Royal Palace briefly, and Maud and her sister spontaneously began to dance in the ballroom.

At the time it was the goal for every young princess to marry well. Maud held off so long that her relatives began to think that it would never happen. Though Queen Victoria thought differently, and as with all Royals, there were plenty of rumours. Prince Christian of Denmark, the older brother of Prince Carl, was rumoured to be a suitor, as was Prince Nicholas of Greece. The latter admitted to the fact after Maud and Carl were suitably tied together… but we get ahead of ourselves. :)

Carl and Maud met in Denmark. More precisely, they met at Fredensborg Castle where their grandparents gathered all the relatives for the summer, but the friendship didn’t develop to something else until the summer of 1892. But their parents wanted them to wait, to be certain that their feelings were real, before they did anything permanent about it.

It was also a mystery to some people why a British princess, who was the granddaughter of the most powerful queen in the world, would “settle” for a second lieutenant in one of the smallest navies in the world. Strategically, it was not viewed as a brilliant move. Prince Carl was the second son of the Crown Prince. His chances of ever becoming a King were limited, as were his funds.

But Maud and Carl persevered, and were engaged in 1895. First unofficially on September 22nd, then later the official engagement came on October 25th.

The wedding took place at Buckingham Palace on the 22nd of July. They received a house on the land surrounding Sandringham as a wedding-present from her parents; it was called Appleton House. The newly-wed spent most of the fall in Britain before they journeyed to Copenhagen just before Christmas.

They settled in an apartment owned by the Greek King in Bredgate 48.

Maud did not like Copenhagen. Her health did not agree with the climate, and Carl was away most of the time with the navy. She never quite found her place with Carl’s family, and missed her own. In the years that followed she would spend more and more time in Britain, for health reasons.

But in 1903 something happened that ensured that she wouldn’t be alone when her husband was out with the navy: she gave birth to her only child.

They named him Alexander Edward, after his maternal grandmother and grandfather, and Christian Frederik, as it is customary that all princes in line to the Danish throne have at least one of these names.

The little family was complete.

Two years later their lives would be altered dramatically, and forever as Carl was approached about the Norwegian throne.

Maud liked Norway. The climate was better for her health than the Danish had been, although she still spent parts of the falls in Britain, she spent less time there. She also liked the Norwegian nature, and attitude towards life. The Royal family set out from the beginning to be as Norwegian as possible.

Skis were a large part of that, and the royal family often tried out their skis. Olav remembered a dog he had, who spent his time jumping on the back of people’s skis. Unfortunately for Queen Maud, the dog was heavier than her, and she couldn’t get anywhere when it was on. But she would continue to ski until she was well past sixty.

She once told Olav when they were looking at the jumpers in Holmenkollen: “You’re not really Norwegian until you’ve tried this.” Maud wanted her son to be just almost like the other Norwegian children, and he did jump there, eventually.

Maud’s hobbies later in life included gardening, dancing, painting, art, photography, and she was an avid writer of letters. She also enjoyed children, to the point that she held parties in the Palace for them, even after her son had grown too old. She was thrilled upon getting grandchildren to spoil, and she would host their birthday parties at Bygdųy.

A sore point was her grandson’s name. Maud did not like the name Harald. It had been one of the options in 1905 for her son, and she had not chosen it then. When she carried her grandson to his christening she had threatened King Haakon before she left the royal apartments: she would answer Magnus when the Bishop asked the name of the child. King Haakon is said to have worried all through the ceremony, and he most likely breathed out in relief when his wife said Harald.

Unfortunately she did not get to spend much time with them. She had cancer, and died on November 20th, 1938. She was brought back to Norway, and buried in Oslo.

The only flower arrangement on her coffin was a simple arrangement made of light red carnations. They were from King Haakon.

Thank you very much for this profile of Queen Maud, norwegianne and Mandy! I really learned a lot -- not having known much about the Norwegian royal family.

Queen Maud seems to have possessed some hidden spunk even if she was a very shy individual. The spontanous dancing in the palace ballroom during that first visit to Norway with her mother and sister and the incident quoted below over the name of her grandson.

Out of curiosity, what was it about the name Harald that Maud did not care for? (I myself agree with the Queen and prefer Magnus.)

Honestly Alexandria, I don't know why she didn't like it. I read about it in a few of the biographies. Harald was also the name of her husband's younger brother. It might be some other reason completely. It's hard to know when you only have second-hand accounts of it all.

Yes, they were first cousins... Maud was the daughter of Alexandra of Denmark. Carl was the son of Frederik of Denmark, Alexandra's older brother.

There was an article in today's paper edition of either Dagbladet or VG, that compared Queen Sonja and Queen Maud. Apparently the two of them seem to be roughly the same height, though Queen Sonja thought she was a centimeter or two taller.

It's hard to tell how much Queen Maud weighed, but King Olav once told about a ski-trip with his mother. His dog liked to sit on people's skis, and jumped on back on the Queen's. It made her irritated, because with the dog at the back of the skis, she was unable to move. Olav also said that he wasn't very old before he was bigger than his mother, though what he meant by very old, I don't know.

Thanks, I am glad you liked the pics.

I, actually, scouted around for the pics, therefore I am not too sure of the source. But, some of them were taken from Corbis.
