Queen Margarethe II & Prince Henrik
« on: April 02, 2005, 11:42:19 PM »
Queen Margrethe seems to be my favorite female monarch in Europe, does anyone have any information on her early childhood, where she went to school as a child, how was it like growing up being an heir, and how was her relationship with her parents and sisters?

Margrethe was born one week after Germany had occupied Denmark, and was naturally seen as the first little hope in a dark time.
Her parents would walk the streets of Copenhagen with her to show their support and sympathy with the population.
She did attend a private school in her first years, Zahles skole, but was also eduacated at home.

Isn't Margrethe II not actually a legitimate Queen, but a crowned regent?  I know that doesn't really make sense, but i read (during all the CP Mary media hype in Australia) that while her father took steps to allow her to constitutionally become Denmarks head of state she isn't as 'complete' as a King would be.

I'm not sure about this, Im definate about the reporting of her being a regent though, and it was in The Age, which is a very reliable newspaper.

Queen Margrethe is the head of state, with the title Queen of Denmark. She is just as "complete"  as a king would be, since she is a female "king", or reigning Queen. The constitution dosnt seperate between a man or a woman.
It wasnt her father who took the steps to change the succession law, but the parlament.
I think that the paper might have been confused, since the Queen can be referred to as regent, but she is a legitimate reigning Queen, and has that title.
The Crown Prince has the title regent when his mother is out of the country and he reigns for her.

Not Maggie but Daisy!  ;D Margrethe  - Marguerita - Daisy.

A. Michelsen designed the enamelled Daisy brooch in 1940 for the honour of the newborn princess (I think she wasn't a crown princess when born).

This brooch is today manufactured by George Jensen, a famous Danish jewellery company, and you can buy it in a variety of colours. Also the Queen is often seen wearing the brooch and matching earrings.

Queen Margrethe II's nickname is "Daisy",her father called her that,and so does all the family.

I add a family-tree,click on the pics for names and birthdays,
http://www1.jp.dk/indland/kronprins/stamtrae.html

HM Margrethe Alexandrine Thorhildur Ingrid,born april 16th 1940,was called to the Throne upon the death
of her father King Frederik IX,january 14th 1972.

HM is also an accomplished artist/designer/writer and her work(paintings) is found on exhibition sometimes.
She also designed many costumes for theatre plays and/or ballets and complete sets,and,on special occasions,
designs vestments for the clergy of the Lutheran church.

In keeping with the tradition of her parents,the entire/extended family spends part of the summer holidays at Graasten Palace,so HM's sisters and husbands & children,grandchildren are taking part as well.

After that HM and Prince Henrik spend most of the summer in Caix,France,at their estate/winery Chateau de Caix.

During her absense her son Crown Prince Frederik acts as Regent,and in case he's abroad as well,
the Queens sister Princess Benedikte is Regent.
