Prince Valdemar (1858 - 1939), Princess Marie and family
 
I thought it would be good to start a thread that talked about the Danish Royals from the past.

Does anyone have any info on Prince Aage? Please go to the following link to see a photo of Prince Aage:

Can anyone tell me what type of uniform he is wearing? I have never seen that type of hat before on anyone. This prince was handsome. This photo is on an old postcard that I bought for my Royalty postcard collection. I would like any info on this royal. Thank you!

Layla1971 10-29-2005 07:21 PM

You're right Jil, he was very handsome. Do you know who his parents were? That would help in my search for info.

Layla1971 10-29-2005 07:24 PM

I just found this info, but it probably isn't what you're looking for.


Prince Aage Christian Alexander Robert of Denmark, Greve af Rosenborg (1887-1940), eldest son of Prince Valdemar of Denmark, grandson of Christian IX, King of Denmark (1818-1906), was married to Mathilde Emile Francesca Marie Calvi dei Conti di Bergolo (1885-1949).

And this is a picture of the man I'm referring to.
He is standing third from the left.

Thanks Layla for the info and photo. Who are the other people in the photo you posted? Is the uniform that Prince Aage is wearing in my photo that of the Foreign Legion?

The photo was taken at the coronation of King Vajiravudh (Rama VI) of Thailand at Dusit Palace, December 1911.

The European Monarchs sent represenatives to the coronation of King Rama VI. The king made many friends when he studied in England, and in having to represent his father, King Rama V, on many royal occassions in Europe. Another significant occassion when many European Royals gathered in Thailand was for the 200th-year celebration of Bangkok, in 1982.

The people in the photo, from left to right standing are,
1) Prince Axel Christian Georg of Denmark (1888-), second son of Prince Valdemar of Denmark, grandson of Christian IX, King of Denmark (1818-1906), was married to Princess Margaretha Sofia Lovisa Ingeborg of Sweden (1899-1977).

2) Prince Fushimi-no-Miya of Japan (Prince Fushimi Sadanaru, 22nd Prince Fushimi-no-Miya) (1858-1923). The Fushimi-no-Miya is one of the four branch houses of the imperial dynasty entitled to provide a successor to the throne.



3) Prince Aage Christian Alexander Robert of Denmark, Greve af Rosenborg (1887-1940), eldest son of Prince Valdemar of Denmark, grandson of Christian IX, King of Denmark (1818-1906), was married to Mathilde Emile Francesca Marie Calvi dei Conti di Bergolo (1885-1949).



4) Prince Erik Frederik Christian Alexander of Denmark (1890- ), third son of Prince Valdemar of Denmark, grandson of Christian IX, King of Denmark (1818-1906), was married to Loïs Frances Booth (1897-1941) in Ottawa, Ontario, in 1924, divorced in 1937.

And seated left to right,

5) Prince Alexander of Teck (Alexander Cambridge, 1st Earl of Athlone) (1874-1957), son of Francis, Duke of Teck and his wife, Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge, and youngest brother of Queen Mary, consort of King George V of Great Britain, married to Princess Alice of Albany.

6) Grand Duke Boris Vladimirovich of Russia (1877-1943), son of Grand Duke Vladimir ROMANOV and Grand Duchess Marie PAVLOVNA, and grandson of Tsar Alexander II of Russia, married to Zenaida RASHEVSKA. 7) Princess Maries of Sweden (Grand Duchess Marie Pavlovna of Russia) (1890-1958), daughter of Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich of Russia and Princess Alexandra of Greece and Denmark, and grand daughter of Tsar of Russia Alexander II Nicholaievitch, was married to Prince Vilhelm of Sweden.8) Princess Alexander of Teck (Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone) (1883-1981), daughter of Prince Leopold of Great Britain and Ireland and Princess Helene zu Waldeck und Pyrmont, and granddaughter of Queen Victoria, married to Prince Alexander of Teck.



9) Prince Valdemar of Denmark (1858-1939), son of Christian IX, King of Denmark (1818-1906) and Luise, Princess of Hesse-Cassel (1817-1898), youngest brother of Frederik VIII, King of Denmark (1843-1912), was married to Princess Marie Amélie Françoise Hélène d'Orléans (1865-1909).



10) Prince Vilhelm of Sweden (1884-1965), son of King Gustaf V Adolf of Sweden and Princess Victoria von Baden, was married to Grand Duchess Marie Pavlovna of Russia (ended in divorce). They had one son, Count Lennart Bernadotte af Wisborg.

I wrote in my previous post that Prince Aage was satanding on the far left, he is actually standing third from the left, sorry I didn't say it right the first time, and I'll correct my earlier post.

Layla1971 10-29-2005 08:08 PM

As for the uniform, I'm not sure, I've never seen a foreign legion uniform before, but I can find a picture somewhere.

Royal Fan 10-30-2005 02:03 PM

How Do you pronounce his name this is a great idea for a thread :)

If you say 'I owe you something' you take the word 'owe' and stretch the o a little bit before the w and then pronounce the e as an open 'eh' (as it isn't pronounced at all when you say 'owe'), then you got Aage, (or Åge as it's written these days.)

ooweh

It's a great idea this thread, I've been wondering why we know so little about Queen Alexandrine since she isn't that far back in history, only one generation before Queen Ingrid.

Scroll down this list to Frederik 8 and you will find the picture looks pretty much like 'Roi de Danemark' as it's shown above. He was quite a traveller, in fact he died in Hamburg, Germany.

Father: King Christian IX of Denmark (1818-1906)

Mother: Princess Louise of Hesse-Kassel (1817-1898)

Siblings: King Frederik VIII of Denmark, Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom, King George I of Greece, Empress Maria Feodorovna of Russia, Crown Princess Thyra of Hanover.

Children:
Prince Aage (June 1887-February 1940)

Trivia: Princess Margrethe was the mother of Queen Anna of Romania.


Now that I have all that, does anyone know if Valdemar had any other names, and if so, what were they? It seems odd to see him with just the one name when all his siblings had a string of names...

Countess Ruth of Rosenborg died on 25 July, aged 85. She was the widow of the late Count Flemming of Rosenborg, born Prince Flemming of Denmark (son of Prince Axel, himself son of Prince Waldemar and Princess Marie, and his wife Princess Margaretha).

Prince Valdemar was a convivial sailor prince who turned down a few offers of thrones in other countries (Bulgaria was one I believe). He was very close to his nephew Prince George of Greece (Greek Georgie I think). I would not mention this but have gotten some very sinister undertones from those who talk about the relationship of these two, in the sense that their relationship may have been somewhat romantic. I am going from what I read in the bio of Greek Georgie's wife Marie Bonaparte and other reading and documentaries.

Theirs was a strange relationship! I'm not sure whether there is any 'proof' so to speak! However if you get the impression that something unusual was going on nobody who's familiar with DRF history will blame you!. - Even Queen Margrethe once hinted in a documentary that 'they were very, very close friends'.

We may think about this whatever we like; I have decided to ragard it as one of the oddities of life!

It was known to everyone that they had a "romantic" relationship. Even Maria Bonaparte, Princess George understood it! She often wrote that when Prince George was with Uncle Valdemar, they both seem radiant! and when they had to separate (Prince George should go back to Greece), it was every year dramatical!

Personally I found disgusting! When they started Prince George was 16y old and Valdemar's nephew!! Valdemar was 11 years older. Consequently it was an incestious, and pedophilic action! between an man and a young boy!

They obviously had a long-term, loving relationship which was supported by Prince George's wife Marie Bonaparte financially as well as emotionally.
If she - a fascinating and highly intelligent woman whose biography is worth exploring - didn't judge otherwise, why should anyone else.

Because some acts inside the royal families and the high power people at this time were accepted in a different way than they would be judged today. At this time this story was "normal" for now NOT!

A Diana-Charles-Camilla story, if happened 100 years ago, would never have provoked any reaction of the then "Diana" and the story would have continued for years without never becoming public.

And do you think than the Dominique-Strauss Khan of 100 years ago would have been accused by the maid... Never!

On the other hand, if you know the story of the Lost Prince John of England, it is a very sad story, which would not happen now!

Consequentrly I judge this story with my mind of today and my own opinion.
