Kirsten Munk (* 6. Juli 1598; † 19. April 1658 in Boller), daughter of Ludwig Munk and Ellen Marsvin.
In 1615 she became 'Gräfin von Schleswig-Holstein' and the second wife of the Danish king Christian IV. The King divorced her in 1629 after the birth of her last child. The King hadn't slept with her for over a year and this child was probably the child of her lover, Otto Ludwig Rheingraf zu Salm. She had became his lover in about 1626. In 1629 Christian IV took a new mistress: Vibeke Kruse. Vibeke was presented to the King by his former mother-in-law Ellen Marsvin. Ellen wanted to keep her influence over the king.
Most sources say she had 12 children with the Christian IV. I can only find 10. Who knows the other two children wo were probably stillborn?
