And Christian VIII. His dark skin and robust figure was different from the pale and skinny Oldenburgs.

No, I don't know how they were connected.  :-/
Frederik von Blüchers parents emigrated from Germany to Denmark. Thats all I know about his family.

I don't have any good portraits at the moment, but I will look for them, when I have time...
A b/w of Sophie frederikke.


And a family portrait. Sophie Frederikke was said to have the most beautiful brown eyes.

No pictures but she was godmother to the 1st 3 of her Schleswig-Holstein-S-Glucksborg nephews & neices, Frederik (later King Frederik VIII of Denmark), Alexandra (later Queen Alexandra of Great Britain) & Wilhelm (later King Georg I of the Hellenes).
Everyone is where they want to be!

Two portraits of the coronation in 1841. This was the last coronation of a Danish King.

Wonderful portraits  :) I am just wondering was at that time IN to hold your right hand under your uniform or there is another reason for that?

No, at first she was sent to live in Horsens, a small Danish town. She moved into a mansion that once was the home of the siblings of Emperor Ivan VI.
She lived there for I think about 20 years, before moving to Rome. She never saw her son after the divorce.


Actually, they did met once. When Frederik VII was king, he went to Rome to see her. They both had many high thoughts and illusions about each other, so when they finally met, they were both a little bit disappointed. After that, they never saw each other again. But when she died, Frederik made sure to give her a tomb fit for a queen.

My original post seems to have disappeared in the transition!
But I'm quit sure that Charlotte Frederikke didn't see her son after the divorce. She died in 1840, eight years before Frederik became king, but he did give her a grand tomb once he was king.
Charlotte Frederikke met her ex-husband once after the divorce, but not her son.
