I didn't know that then Hereditary Grand Duke Peter of Oldenburg was Russia's candidate as heir to Frederik VII in the negociations during the early 1850s. But he was not acceptable to Denmark because he openly expressed pro-SH sympathies, so they rather agreed on Christian IX. Does anybody know how strong Peter's candidature was?

Short version.
Yes, then Hereditary Grand Duke Peter was the Russian candiate to the Danish throne, and thus he had the strongest candidature and was accepted as the coming heir. However, Peter and his families views and conduct in the time that followed became so anti-Danish that Nicholas I soon accepted Christian (IX) instead.

I also think Nicholas I personally liked Prince Christian since he met him with his son-in-law of Hesse who married his daughter Alexandra.

Yes, he liked Christian IX very much, and he met him on several occasions. But Nicholas I's first choice was Peter of Oldenburg. Nicholas dismissed another candidate to the Danish throne, his former son-in-law, Friedrich of Hesse-Cassel, whom he wanted to focus on the throne of Electorial Hesse.

Well...That helped. At least Nicholas I was not against the choice of Christian of Glucksborg, and that is why he named his eldest daughter Alexandra, after Nicholas's daughter who died young.

The family of King Christian photographed outdoors??  I found it with an on-line search.  I believe the poster, gogm1, is a member here. I do not recognize anyone though.  Perhaps the caption was incorrect?  Can anyone identify some of the people in this lovely photo?

Thanks so much everyone.  Sorry for the annoyance.  I'm just not good at getting photos to post properly.
