You're right. I was just sure that I read that they met once somewhere, I must have mixed it up with something else. Even though Christian was very polite and goodhearted, he would'nt have given Frederik permission to go to Rome to visit Charlotte. Sorry about the misinfo.

Isn'it a bit odd that the younger sister Charlotte married the head of the family and the elder Juliana married a Prince from a minor branch ?
Can someone post a pic of Wilhelm of Hesse Cassel, father of Queen Louisa pls.

Or had she expressed her "ideas" about consuming marriage before  ::)?

It was an arranged marriage. I don't think that the family was very rich. Prince Wilhelm Hesse-Philippstal-Barchfeld was the only one of the family to live in Denmartk, the rest lived in Germany.

Prince Wilhelm of Hesse-Cassel wasn't the head of the family. The head of the family was the Elector of Hesse-Cassel, first his uncle then his cousin.

 On Wikipedia online they did a nice job covering King Christian VIII as they do in all the denmark kings. Question is at the bottom of page it has his Legacy on the second line it says quote " He had ten children outside of marriage. He carefully listed them and saw that they were treated well." Anyone know where this list might be if its carefully listed? I cant find a thing online about this. Is this true...must be its in the Encyclopedia.

It is true that he had children born outside of his marriages, and that he looked after them, but I don't know of a specific list. Christian had several affairs with women, resulting in numerous rumours about illegitimate children, such as Danish author, Hans Christian Andersen being one of them.

Another question for the board. This is going to be a tough question and I've looked all over online for the answer without any luck. Caroline Amelia was childless. Was there a medical problem that kept her from having children. Seems this might be the reason since she was married
early, ( child bearing age). King Christian VIII wanted an heir and I think he knew that his other son from his first marriage King Frederick VII was sterile very early on. The House of Oldenburg was daughtering out. They seemed happily married. No problems there. Anyone have any thoughts on this matter. Thanks

'королю мая'

Correction:  'майскому королю'

While Oslo's main street is named after Kristian Fredrik's antagonist and successor King Carl Johan (Bernadotte), with a huge statue of him on front of the Royal Palace at the top of the street, there has not been a proper memorial to Kristian Fredrik untill now.
