Pictures of Christian IX and family, Part I
« on: December 18, 2004, 10:13:29 PM »
I read Christian IX didn't have many photos of his family done because of their financial situation. Does anyone have pics of him and his family? Especially Queen Luise when she was younger? All the pics I see of her, she seems so old!

Not really Angie, what this means is that when they were younger, before Christian IX ascended the Danish throne the family had access to reduced funds, but once he became King in 1863 there condition, never excessively affluent anyhow, improved.

Also do remember that Frederik VIII married one of the wealthiest royal brides (rich in silver gold emeralds rubies saphires diamonds and investments...poor in looks the poor dear), Princess Lovisa of Sweden, only child of King Carl XV.

Oh and furthermore, photography did not really take off until the 1850's really, by which time Louise and Christian were already in their mid-thirties.

I do not exactly know about the year of a photo below.
May be 1863? Queen Louise don`t look old.

Oh yes that is in Royal Cabinet Portraits by David Cripps, which I got for Christmas and absolutly adore. Perhaps if you got it out of that book than you caould also post the one of Thyra and Waldemar that is right next to it in the book? I would say this photo was actually taken in about 1864 or even 1865.

Based on Dagmar's dress and hair, could it have been part of the series taken around the time of her initial engagement to Tsarevich Nicholas? I think she was wearing that dress and the same hairdo with the bow in a group shot and of her and Nicholas.

Gosh, Thyra looks positively murderous! The photo as GDElla suggests, looks like it was taken in 1864 at the time of her engagement to Nikolai - the hair style is the same, band, bow and all.  There is a photo in 'The Camera and the Tsars' showing a group on the steps at Fredensborg and dated summer 1864; Dagmar is a bit out of focus but you can see that she has the same hairstyle.
Later photos at the time of her engagement to Sasha in 1866, show that she has changed the style of her hair to something a little more sophisticated.

 Really out of "Emperor Alexander III" by A.Bokhanov.

And Thyra looks so funny!
;)

Thanks you all !

They look as though they are listing to port a bit!  Its making me feel a bit queasy! LOL
I must admit that I am having a fight to the death with my scanner, and getting things straight seems to be eluding me.  My partner saw the image that I posted of Pcss Mary of Denmark and said that she looked drunk because the image wasn't straight.  He then asked me if I was drunk when I scanned it - the cheek, always so much to say and so slow to help!
I do love this photo, though as it illustrates perfectly the relatively humble circumstances of the family; they really could be any Victorian family in this picture...
