Just an amazing story about the Danish Royal Family in the time of King Christian IX (from "Secrets of the Gotha")

--"...each week, at the Opera, in order to give the public the impression that they were holding
lively conversation during the intervals, the princes and princesses had acquired the habit of counting up to hundred and then starting all over again:
1,2,3,4,5,6, - said the Prince Royal
7,8,9,10, - replied the Princess Royal
12,13,14, - Princess Ingeborg would interpolate with determination
15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22, -replied Princess Thyra, who was a chatterbox.
"How gay our princes and princesses are this evening!", the public would think with delight."--

Very funny and surprisingly - didn't they really have a lot of subjects for conversation except counting to 100?  ;D

They were training their children to be properly Royal in public and playing games with the children at the same time ;) ;)!  

Also, having a good laugh when they read the news papers the next morning ::) ::)!

Svetabel, thank you for this amusing story! I guess it could get pretty tedious at times. My cousins and I had a game we would play--who could spot the most celebrity "lookalikes" and write them down. It's surprisingly fun to play, and I find myself doing it even now, waiting at the doctors, on the bus, etc!

This book you mentioned "Secrets of the Gotha"...is it in English? Any more information about it would be greately appreciated! Thank you!

"Secrets of the Gotha" by Gislain de Diesbach, published in 1964 in English. The book is very interesting,one can find many amusing facts about Royalties of the past.
I don't have the book close at hand right now so I can't post ISBN. :(

Wow! Thank you so much! I hadn't even known that book existed. I'll have to track it down.

Congratulations on your winning your Baby Bee card!  :D

I had already ordered the book thru interlibrary loan. I am sure the people at my school are wondering waht kind of scholarly pursuits I'm into, as I order so many ;)

Anyways, the ISBN is 156619086X. Might help in tracking it down, especially if you are like me, ordering it thru ILLAID.

Plus with the advent of photography not occuring until the 1840s (and that was early for royals, mostly due to Prince Albert) I don't think there will be photos. Maybe sketches or portraits/miniatures of her somewhere.

I know that Queen Louise (wife of Christian IX) died in 1898, but who here knows what she died of. Also didn't Nicholas & Alexandra go to the funeral.

Nicholas did--Alexandra didn't. Perhaps she was expecting at the time? He wrote her almost daily (if not daily) with descriptions of what was going on.

She basically died of old age. I don't think that there was anything else to it. She was around 80 (1817-1898)).
Four of her children also died around that age, Alexandra (1844-1925), Dagmar (1847-1928)), Thyra (1853-1933) and Valdemar (1858-1939).
