Kmerov, I was reading the wonderful bio about Minnie writted by Coryne Hall the last days and I am certain that the danish royal family tried to be a real support to the Dowager Empress. I think that Erik Scavenius, the Foreign Minister of Danish Government, and his cousin Harald Scavenius, who was the Denmark´s Minister to Petrograd since 1912, worked very hard in this rough times to ensure the safety of Minnie. Members of the Danish Red Cross delegation as Dr Carl Kreb made a great effort to help Minnie, and the same did employees of the danish Transatlantic Company. Ingeborg Larsen, sister of one employee of TC, arrived at Harax one time with letters from the Danish Royal Family hidden into her clothes.
So, my impression is that King Christian X was really concerned about his aunt Minnie and really wanted to take her away from the Crimea, where things easily could go from bad to worse. But later, when Minnie was in the danish court, he could not be patient with the old lady...and it is a pity. I think Queen Alexandrine suffered a lot, due the behaviour of her husband to the old auntie exiled from a lost empire.
