Just scanned the Danish listing and I don't see another thread specifically for Queen Louise and King Christian, but if there is one, I apologize . . .
At any rate, I am so glad this particular thread was started, because whenever I've read about Alix or Minnie's early years, their parents have been treated as something of a footnote, and generally all that's been said is that they were loving but rather empty-headed, lacking responsibility, etc., etc. I've never quite understood where all this came from--especially considering that later on quite a lot of energy was expended in visits to "Amama" and "Apapa"--so perhaps posters with a better knowledge of the subject can enlighten us.
My guess is that one of the reasons Louise and Christian have been disparaged has something to do with one of their daughters becoming sexually active and subsequently conceiving a baby out of wedlock. Any thoughts on this?
