At the time of this union Frederick was Crown Prince of Denmark and also Regent and did not become king and queen until 1808.

The queen also acted as Regent from 1814–1815.

His widow Charlotte Amalie of Hesse-Kassel outlived him by 15 years and was greatly praised by her actions during the Swedish invasion Zealand in 1700.

Anna of Brandenburg was also the mother of the future Christian III of Denmark and Dorothea of Denmark (later Duchess of Prussia).

Her mother was Princess Louise Charlotte of Denmark (1789-1864) who herself was the daughter of Frederick the Hereditary Prince of Denmark and Norway and Sophia Frederica of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.
Princess Louise played a vital role in the Danish succession crisis of the mid 1850's.

The Palace has made a post today as well:

Quote:
On this day 350 years ago, 12 October 1671, the first award of the Order of the Dannebrog took place at Rosenborg Castle. It happened the day after a crown prince was born, the later Frederik IV, which was an important dynastic event in the then young hereditary monarchy. (..) On the occasion of the 350th anniversary, the National History Museum at Frederiksborg Castle opens the special exhibition "The Dannebrog Order 350 years", which can be experienced from Friday 15 October until 5 April 2022.

28th of October 1412 : Death of Margrete I (Valdemarsdatter) Queen of Denmark,Norway and Sweden.


Queen Margrete though never a Sovereign was the founder of the Kalmar Union which joined all 3 Scandinavian kingdoms together for over a century.
The Queen is buried beneath a splendid tomb effigy at Roskilde Cathedral, near Copenhagen. Masses were celebrated for her soul in accordance to her wishes right up until 1536 when they were forbidden following the reformation.

And a newspaper article as it might have read back in 1412, by the long dead historian Palle Lauring:

Mistress of the North and Queen, Margrethe, dead from plague.

Copenhagen, 2th of November 1412.
According to recent message the Mistress of the North and Queen, Margrethe, died a few days ago. According to the preliminary message the Queen has died from plague.

A short time ago Queen Margrethe sailed to Southern Jutland and she had put extraordinary emphasis on that journey and she expected big results from it.
It will be remembered that her father managed to gather all of Denmark (1) but he did not manage to have Southern Jutland incorporated into the realm, or make the position of that land made clear. (2) He died just as he was about to finally solve the problem. It is both odd and thought provoking that Queen Margrethe dies just as she has decided to deal with the same problem. (3) Her ship went into Flensborg Fjord and as far as it is understood the Queen has been brought ashore on one of the Oxen Islands (in the fjord) where she has died.
With Margrethe Northern Europe has lost one of its strongest women.
When the Queen came to Denmark from Norway with her little son by the hand (4) no one expected the very young girl should be able to handle the very difficult political situation. But everyone soon thought otherwise. She immediately revealed herself as her father’s daughter. Bright, authoritative, determined and strong. But instead of King Valdemar’s wild inflexibility and ruthless purposeful activity, she had an flexibility and endless patience, which she soon used, soon didn’t use, always calm always with an eye on the smallest details in every situation.
When her son (Oluf) died she was probably in her most difficult situation in her life. Because she herself had no right or claim on anything of the realms. (5)
She handled the situation to her advantage in a remarkably short time (6) and then adopted her sister’s nephew. She could not use his difficult Slavic name, so she renamed him Erik. One of the very few names used by kings in all the three Nordic kingdoms. (7)
With him by her side she has carried on the rules of the realms and the work of her life is the unification of the three Nordic realms.
The final document of the union is however not yet finished, it is believed that Margrethe wasn’t quite pleased with it. But the countries are one and the young Erik of Pommorania has already been crowned as their rightful lord and king. So the succession and handing over of power contains no problems.

Written in newspaper style by late historian Palle Lauring.

Erik of Pommorania did not match his mother and the Kalmar Union did not survive. That however is a different story.

(1) After yet a period of turmoil King Valdemar Atterdag (Atterdag = day again) got control over the entire Denmark after one of the worst crisis in its history. Magrethe was daughter of Valdemar Atterdag.

(2) Palle Lauring here used the nationalistic term for the then independent duchies Slesvig & Holsten (Danish spelling). The duke of these duchies was always the Danish king, but he was not their king. And Schleswig & Holstein (German spelling) didn’t considered themselves part of the Danish realm. That fact naturally caused a lot of problems during the Danish history.
Modern Southern Jutland consist of the northern half of Slesvig.

(3) Far from all Danish monarchs died of old age. It is however not known whether Queen Margrethe really was assassinated.

(4) In 1376. She was married to the Norwegian King Haakon, they had a son, Oluf, who at that time was five years old. As she was a daughter of a Danish king, Margrethe’s son was in line for the Danish throne.

(5) That was after the forming of the Kalmar Union, amalgamating the three Nordic Kingdoms under her son’s sceptre. I.e. her sceptre.

(6) – “I, am in charge, right”!?! – “Yes, certainly, of course, naturally”.
- “The death of my son is not that big an issue, right”!?! – “Nope, not at all. Just a minor detail, we can solve it. No problem”.
Of course she did not only use intimidation. Most realised that Margrethe was the best for the job and most in power did not wish to see the Kalmar Union dissolved.

(7) For political reasons she had to use an outsider. She could not use one who was in direct line for say the Danish throne, that would have been unacceptable for Swedish and Norwegian nobles. It had to be her own son or an outsider. Erik. Who came from Pommorania.

Though the queen died aged 59 and it was sudden death onboard her ship it was not expected and she had recently scored several major victories and imagine had the queen lived longer!
