The duc de Guise wrote a charming little book about his time in the Danish army, now available online: Sous le Danebrog : souvenirs de la vie militaire en Danemark 1894-1899. It paints Christian IX's Denmark as an idyll straight out of a Hans Christian Andersen tale.
Березы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

(Афанасий Фет: «Ивы и березы», 1843 / 1856)

Their mother, Princess Isabelle Duchess of Guise (1878-1961), left here photographed with her sister-in-law Marie d'Orléans, Princess Valdemar of Denmark :




A story circulating about Isabelle of France, that the old Emperor Franz Joseph, Sisi became a widower in 1898, thought a while, despite the age difference, to remarry with the lovely young Princess.

But the union did not take place and Isabelle married the same year her cousin Jean, Duke of Guise.
