It sure is!
I suggest you do an image search on Google, using the Danish names listed on the Wikipedia.dk page. That should ensure more results.
I think you can say that from around 1550 and up, the portraits are pretty authentic. Albeit in line with the changing artistic conventions.
Most "portraits" of monarchs before 1550 were made during the 1600 and 1800 hundreds and they are pure imagination - sometimes even charmingly anachronistic.
