This is clearly a very tragic event indeed: Muhler, our resident expert in all things Danish, please share the story of this young man so that we can know more about his very short life.

Well, I don't know that much about the person, Count Frederik Christian Moltke.

27 years old, when he died. Lived and worked in London, but planned to return to DK and take over running Bregentved Manor, which is the largest estate in DK, in terms of land.
He was educated at Herlufsholm and graduated as cand.oecon.agro from Copenhagen University.
Not married and no children.
He has two brothers, also counts.

By the few accounts I've heard about him, he was a likable person.

The Moltke family is a large and very influential German noble line from around 1220.
The Danish branch of the family is to this day very prominent and they were established in DK from around 1300.
The main seat of the family in Denmark is Bregentved Manor which dates from 1319.

http://static.panoramio.com/photos/o...l/22451426.jpg
The family took over the place in 1746.

Bregentved Manor is but one of several in DK well known places associated with or owned by the family.
The most prominent of these places is now known as Frederik VII's Mansion, at Amalienborg. That's the mansion used for representation, that's where the grand New Year Court is held. It was previously known as Moltke's Mansion, until the DRF took over the four mansions that constitute Amalienborg in 1794.

I don't know to what extent he knew M&F, but they would have mingled in the same greater circle of people and certainly several of his family members will also be in the wider circle of friends around the DRF.

------------------------

Thank you for your well wishes. We shall need them when we run out of breath...

I thought that my former history student brain recognised the surname Moltke - the late Count is part of the Danish side of the Moltke family whom Helmuth James von Moltke was a member of (Helmuth was involved in an anti-Nazi plot to assassinate Hitler and was a leading member of the Kreisau circle during WWII).

I see.

Ironically it was another Moltke (Helmut von Moltke) who was in charge of implementing the von Schlieffen Plan, the invasion of France in 1914.
The French in particular may thank their lucky star that he was not as competent as his great-uncle, Helmut Karl von Moltke, who is the one who formulated the modern strategic thinking and who was behind setting up the formidable German military general staff-school. (Joachim will be attending the french equivalent.)
His teachings are mandatory reading at military academies even today.
He was also responsible for the Second Schleswigan War having such a disastrous outcome for Denmark.

Interesting. Seems like the Moltke family have always been very involved in issues surrounding wartime.

According to BilledBladet, the Queen visited the CP couple's home today to celebrate Mary's birthday.
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...aa-amalienborg

"Queen Margrethe arrived in her crown car to the palace early on Tuesday night, and may the Queen be visiting to congratulate Crown Princess Mary on her birthday.

"Crown Prince Frederik was on Tuesday afternoon at work in the inner city, where he officially opened the green and sustainable showroom House of Green, but then he quickly returned to Mary and the children at Amalienborg, where there was a good family home evening."

Such a gorgeous photo of little Grace! Mary is a talented photographer. Seems like the weather is being good to the Danes as it is to us Brits too

Thanks, Eya. Just like the photo of Grace this has been taken at Copenhagen Citadel, a little kilometer north of Amalienborg.
Mary has been seen jogging there before, so why not walk the dog there as well?

More photos from Kastellet (The Citadel.)

What a fantastic coincidence for the photographer when he realised the subjects of his photos were the Crown Princess of Denmark and the Crown Prince of the Danish dog world! It's nice to get a glimpse into the "off-duty" life of the family. Perfectly normal like us regular folks.

Yes, it's good to see them being allowed to be themselves sin public. Long may that last.

The Crown Dog = Kronhunden is a very fitting title for Gracie.
Should Gracie live long enough to see M&F become the regent couple, she will jokingly be referred to as "Rigshunden" = The Dog of the Realm. But I think the best translation would be The First Dog.
Just as QMIIs dachshund is often referred to a Rigshunden.
