So just for anyone not playing along,

Knud (for his four-year reign) --> Christian XI
Ingolf (would now be) --> Frederik X

If Knud would not have had Christian as a middle name, could he still have selected Christian as his regnal name?

I suppose so.
A simple administrative change in the Public Register.

Some examples:

HIS SONS
Christian Carl Frederik Albert Alexander Vilhelm (king Christian X)
Christian Frederik Carl Georg Valdemar Axel (king Haakon VII of Norway)
Harald Christian Frederik
Christian Frederik Vilhelm Valdemar Gustav

Gorm Christian Frederik Hans Harald (elder son of Harald - at the time of his birth 4th in line to the throne after his cousins Frederik and Knud and his father Harald - so not unrealistic to think that he had a small chance to end up at the throne, i.e., if both Frederik and Knud didn't have sons)
Oluf Christian Carl Axel (younger son of Harald: no Frederik!)

YOUNGER SON OF CHRISTIAN X and sons
Knud Christian Frederik Michael
Ingolf Christian Frederik Knud Harald Gorm Gustav Viggo Valdemar Aage
Christian Frederik Franz Knud Harald Carl Oluf Gustav Georg Erik

ELDER SON OF CHRISTIAN X and male descendants
Christian Frederik Franz Michael Carl Valdemar Georg (previous king)
Frederik André Henrik Christian (current crown prince)

It seems the crown prince was the last one to have both names: the younger princes have only one of the two - except for prince Henrik who has neither (but the chances of him succeeding to the throne are extremely slim)!
- Joachim Holger Waldemar Christian
- Nikolai William Alexander Frederik
- Felix Henrik Valdemar Christian
- Christian Valdemar Henri John
- Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander
- Henrik Carl Joachim Alain

Don't forget Olav V of Norway, the nephew born down the Danish line of succession — Alexander Edward Christian Frederik.

At the time of Prince Alexander's birth it was not anticipated that his father would become a reigning sovereign of Norway. Alexander's middle names of Christian Frederik are a fine significance of his Danish heritage.

As he was born a Prince of Denmark, so much so that his grandmother Alexandra nicknamed him "Hamlet" for being her Danish grandchild, that would be much the point.

Aside from his father, Olav is probably the only one on the list who had to rebrand and change names, dropping 'Christian Frederik' included.

Edit: Actually I will never understand this about Frederik and Lovisa. Yes, your first two children are boys, yes, there are a few names from a limited pool that need to be applied and re-applied, and no, you're not planning to call the younger one anything but Carl....so why does his first name have to be Christian, too? Was something wrong with "Frederik Christian Carl"? Or "Carl Christian Frederik"? (And it's not just poor Carl. They apparently had a brief spurt of creativity with Harald before doing the exact same thing to Gustav. It's almost as bad as the "Oscar"s in Sweden.)

I call him King "Call-Me-Whatever" half-seriously, but small wonder he ended up preferring "Charles". And/or Haakon.

I've always thought Alexandrine looked quite small in that picture with Christian, but now I think she must have either been standing on a box there or been a lot taller than her delicate appearance seemed, because Christian was taller than Felipe.

And given he was 6'7"/201cm, she doesn't look small enough.

All right, I think it's hard to tell whether Alexandrine was really small or it's just Christian being huge, but it seems like a tossup. https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...amling/r/11061

And this is adorable. https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...amling/r/42518

Christian X was close to 2 meters in height.

And perhaps he wasn't always such a grumpy ramrod. Not when goofing around with his wife at least.

Over, apparently (2.01, or as I found out today, "the tallest man in the Danish army". In the old days they would have made him king for that alone).

Nah, it's adorable.

Given he and his kid brother Carl were apparently BFFs, I'm starting to believe they were more similar than it seems, even if Carl's way of dealing with stuff was hesitation and nerves and Christian's was being a giant authoritarian grump.

It really does run in the family. https://antique-royals.tumblr.com/po...maud-of-norway

(It's also quite something that all of F8's and Lovisa's children who married seem to have been pretty happy, even though their parents were not.)

Okay, and speaking of the lillebror who was still Carl then, I'm putting this here because Christian is in the background, it's in Denmark, and there's more of a chance Muhler will see it than if I put this in Norway.

https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...amling/r/42777

Military + DRF question: why is a navy man wearing the hussar uniform to a birthday party where everyone else is in civvies?

Also fun with how hi-res these are: https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...amling/r/42781

Eventually I figured out what young Prince Knud was playing with... it's Maud's lorgnette/glasses... (Still no idea what F8 has though.)

Eeh, I can imagine of couple of reasons, depending on circumstances, but alas, I can't see the photos.

I suggest you open the photo and link directly, that worked for me.

Do you know, I couldn't see the ones you posted on the other page, but I suspect it might have something to do with already having a copy of the archive open? If you close the other open windows, it seems to work.

I had no problems now.

Anyway, the first thought that comes to my mind is very simple: He has been riding. What would be more natural than wearing a cavalry uniform? Especially if he is seen be people and wish to appear royal.
