My great-grandmother told me that our she descends from a woman who was a prostitute in Denmark who fled to America after having a child with Christian IX.
I have no idea if any of this is true, but just another story to share.

A new subject:

I have read recently that King Edward VII's consort HM Queen Alexandra, née HRH Princess Alexandra of Denmark, had assuredly inherited the condition 'otosclerosis' from her mum, née Princess Louise of Hesse-Cassel. Otosclerosis is the sclerosis, or the hardening, of the tympanic membranes/eardrums in each ear.
Has ever read/heard of any other descendants of either HM Queen Alexandra, or her mum, HM Queen Louise of Denmark, having this condition?
The current Duke of Edinburgh's mom, HRH Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark, née Princess Alice of Battenburg, was born almost totally hearing-impaired. I do believe HRH Princess Alice/Andrew was descendant of HM Queen Alexandra.
Bad royal genes on the lurk (again)?

Queen Alexandra was a third cousin of Alice's great-grandfather Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (Queen Victoria's husband); so they were rather distantly related, and I don't think that their deafness was genetic.

So to make this confusing, if her HM Queen Alexandra, HM King Edward VII's, consort, was HRH Prince Albert's,Queen Victoria's consort, third cousin, then QA was a cousin to her spouse, KE. Well anyway, to make it easy, which of QV's and PA's offspring was Princess Alice/Andrew descended?

Queen Victoria > Princess Alice > Princess Victoria of Battenberg née Hesse > Princess Andrew of Greece née Alice of Battenberg

Only giving attention to the fact that HM/HRH Queen/Princess Alexandra of GB/Denmark's mother was, Princess Louise of Hesse-Cassel, and HRH Princess Alice/Andrew's mother was also a princess of Hesse, HRH Princess Victoria of Battenburg, née Hesse.

The Battenbergs were an offshoot of Hesse-Darmstadt, aka the now-extinct Grand Ducal line of Hesse and by Rhine.
Hesse-Cassel is the Landgravate or Electoral branch of the House of Hesse, a separate line to that of Hesse-Darmstadt.

There was virtually nil marital contact between the two branches.

This tree has also one nice bonus: it shows portraits if you touch with mouse the screen. Unfortunately it's not updated regularly_ there's only 2 children for Mary and the Christian's photo is very old (from baptism).
But still it's really worth to be seen.

Is there anywhere a genealogical list of Princess Marie (wife of Prince Joachim)?

The advanced tree shows only the regents and their spouses, the heirs and their spouses. So therefor you don´t see neither Joachim and his children or the three younger children of the CPC

No, she can't. None of Cnut the Greats sons had children. And his daughter had a daughter, who became a nun.

Not a direct line to Cnut, but to his sister Estrid Svensdatter, mother of king Sweyn II Estridson, the dynasty ruling Denmark between 1047 and 1412 was named after her, the house of Estridsen.
