Blog Real, Thank you for including Empress Matilda (Queen Maud) in the list. King Henry I had designated her as his successor.

How do the Danes refer to the House of Glucksbourg. Both QM and The Duke of Edinburgh are male line descendants of Elimar, Count of Oldenburg.

I'm not sure if I understood the question, but the Danish version of Glucksbourg is Glücksborg.

I don't think "ü" exists in Danish spelling. Since it is a German name, wouldn't it make more sense to write"Glücksburg" (as in German) instead of mixing German and Danish as in "Glücksborg" ?

That's an interesting point. The Norwegians do use the German spelling. Considering the Norwegian royal house was founded by a Danish prince and the similarity of the languages, I wonder what caused the difference.

The name of the Royal House is Glücksborg in the same way as the name of the previous main line is Oldenborg. While the Danish name of the town of Glücksburg is Lyksborg I'm certain that the nationalistic fervour whipped up during the Wars of Schleswig-Holstein made it imperative for the new King Christian IX to seem as Danish as possible and at the same time retain the name of his house.

Interesting. I may have misunderstood your explanation, but given that Lyksborg sounds more Danish than Glücksborg why was "House of Lyksborg" not an option?

Harold II held the crown of England for just ten months in 1066. There is no record of Harold's reign in the Domesday Book. Why? Is it because the Normans did not recognize the reign of Harold II?

I have always had a difficult time understanding why the line went from Queen Ann of the royal house of Stuart to King George of Hanover.
From Stuart to Hanover rather than from Stuart to Plantagenants for instance.
