Thank you for the information! I wasn't aware of the origins of the Order of the Elephant as well.

There is also the lesser Order of The Dannebrog.

Which is a beautiful piece of design. My favourite actor Viggo Mortensen was honoured w/it last year for services to Denmark in the Arts, I don't remember what level he he was awarded, but I do remember various fan sites had pictures of the Order Star and is where I saw it.

Yes, he got this one: http://www.brego.net/uploaded_images...rog-750107.jpg

It's the latest design, with QMII's monogram. It's the Knightscross of the Order of Danneborg, second grade. - The lowest grade.
If or when Viggo Mortensen get a new order it will be the Knightscross, first grade. And it will be in gold, rather than silver as now.

The Knightscross must be returned upon the death of the recipient.

That's interesting Muhler and something that I did not know.

I actually thought the Knightscross, first and second grade, belonged to the recipient, but no. The Historical Society of Orders say they must be returned.

I am fairly new and I am at times overwhelmed by an urge to comment and answer the threads that has long been cold.

The last 3 Danish monarchs (Christian X, Frederik IX & QMII) has awarded the OE to their children on the day of succession. Queen Ingrid was awarded her OE about a month after FIX' succession; Queen Alexandrine had to wait almost 4 months for her OE. This may have been custom at the time but there could be another more low praxtical explanation; The number of OE insignia is limited, so maybe they were simply waiting for insignia of late recipients to be returned. The last 2 consorts (Prince Henrik & CPM) got their on their wedding day.

The crown on top of her shield is also the heraldic crown of the heir to the throne. So I assume that this shield - and maybe all three - were not painted unil after this date.

I would be grateful if anyone can shed any further light onto this for us. [/I]
I think it is safe to say that the shields were painted later and the QMII's shield had 'Regni heres' added after '53. Some people tend to forget the fact the she was never CP - her title was (tronfølger) Heir to the throne. I sometimes see it translated to 'Heiress Presumptive' which I find quite odd because her status was confirmed by law so I don't get the presumption part.

I find the events leading up to the change in the Act of Succession in '53 most intruiging. I wonder what brought it on and if indeed we will ever know. Oh well, that may be material for a brand new thread.
