Did Christian VIII have any other children besides his son and heir Frederick? Not even stillborn babies perhaps?

Was Queen Caroline Amalie related to Prince Christian, husband of Helena, QV's daughter? Was she thus related to Empress Dona of Germany?

Caroline Amalia was Christian's paternal aunt. He was her younger brother Christian's second son, and since he was Dona's uncle(his brother Frederick was her father), Caroline Amalia was Dona's great-aunt. Hope it helps :)

Apparently not. This branch of the family seemed destined to "daughter out":

1. FREDERIK VII King of Denmark (1848-63), *Amalienborg 6.10.1808, +Glücksburg 15.11.1863; on his death he was succeeded by Pr Christian of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg; 1m: København 1.11.1828 (div 1837) Wilhelmine Marie of Denmark (*18.1.1808 +30.5.1891); 2m: Neustrelitz 10.6.1841 (div 1846) Caroline Charlotte Marianne of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (*Neustrelitz 10.1.1821, +Neustrelitz 1.6.1876); 3m: (morganatically) at København 7.8.1850 Lovisa Christina, cr Gfn Danner (*København 21.4.1815, +Cannes 6.3.1874)

Thanks for the pics Marc.  :D

The amount of intermarriages between the Danish, Schleswig-Holstein and Hesse-Cassel lines is really amazing . . .

Caroline Amalie must have been an excellent Godmother.  Four of her Godchildren used her as a Godmother for their own children.  She had to have been especially generous to Frederik of Denmark as she was chosen for five of his!
