I bought my 2 DVD disc set in Australia. It is really an excellent series. It was screened on SBS TV in Australia and is available through ABC - Australian Broadcasting Commission shops. The episode "Love and Revolution" is incredible and deals with the downfall of the Romanovs. There is also an accompanying book which is also brilliant.

Do you have the book as well, Dmitri?

Yes it is superb. What is even better is visiting Copenhagen. You can see the main portraits in the Amalienborg Palace Museum. They are so wonderful.

I'm sorry to be a bother, but I have looked everywhere for a copy (in English) of Christian IX by Hans Roger Madol.  Does anyone out there have one, and would they be generous enough to share a part of it with me?  I need the pages about Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Hesse-Kassel and Grand Duchess Alexandra Nikolaevna.  Thank you very, very much in advance.

Marie: A French Princess in Denmark by Inger-Lise Klausen and Ted Rosvall
« Reply #50 on: July 19, 2012, 08:45:57 PM »
Just received this book from Marlene--I bought it through the link on her blog. I've only had a chance to flip through it but it's really good. It's much thicker than I thought it would be (about 20-30 pages longer than the regular Rosvall books, I think) and has a good deal of text (in Danish and English both). The text was based on published information and also Marie's diaries. It is written on Danish on one page and then translated into English on the next so nothing is missed. There are tons of photos. Some of the Danish group ones are familiar but many are published in full or 3/4 page size. The photos of Marie and her family are mostly unknown, at least to me. I wish there had been more of her as a  young girl--they really start not long before her marriage--but there are so many of her individually, with her French family, her children and her extended family that one can't grumble! The style is the usual Rosvall layout--it's a horizontal shape, a little bit longer in width and shorter in height than other books. they stick out on bookcases so you can always spot them! LOL I was really looking forward to this book and it now goes towards my streak of consecutive 'so glad I got them' purchases along with The Four Graces, Dearest Missy and Dear Ellen. I feel like I'm really on a winning streak! Good royal books can be hard to find and I feel very fortunate that so many excellent ones are being published lately. Definitely worth the price.

Thank you very much, Grand Duchess Ella.  I will definitely look for this book!

I would also like to find more books about Princess Marie's sister-in-law, Crown Princess Mary.  We often call her
'Our Mary' here.  (I am Australian).

Hi Historylover,

FYI:-
This book is not about the present Princess Marie;  it is about Marie d'Orleans, the wife of Prince Waldemar, youngest son of Christian IX and Queen Louise.

I can see where one would make this slight mistake as the present Marie is French and married to a Danish prince.
I would also like to see a book on the two Danish princesses - Mary & Marie!!!

Cheers,
Larry

Oh, I didn't realize the current Princess Marie was French as well or I would've made the distinction. Yes, the book is one the Marie who was the daughter-in-law of Christian IX & Queen Louise. She was thus sister-in-law to Queen Alexandra of Great Britain, Empress Marie of Russia, King Frederick VIII of Denmark and King George I of Greece.

All deserved Ilana! If anyone tracks the back posts dealing with your book, they can see how long and anxiously we were all waiting for it. Very high expectations met and exceeded!

With your book, this one and the others mentioned, I feel very fortunate these last months. Royal book purchasing can be very hit & miss and I'm pretty wary because a lot of these books are pretty pricey. I've been more than pleased.

Hello Larry,

I am so sorry that it's taken so long to reply.  It's a bit disappointing that the book isn't about 'our Mary', but I'd also like
to read about Marie.

"It has long been a desire of The Amalienborg Museum to present the Glücksborg royal couples in a short form in answer to many requests. Now - in the centennial of the death of Frederik 8. – we are happy to be able to present the first three booklets in the series. Simultaneously we are publishing booklets about King Frederik VIII and Queen Lovisa, King Christian X and Queen Alexandrine, and one about the Palace Complex of Amalienborg and the surrounding part of the city.

The plan is that in 2013 – the 150th anniversary of the accession to the throne of the Glücksborg line -  several more publications will completes the series.

Initially the series is only available in Danish, but English translations will follow."

"APAPA" - King Christian IX of Denmark and His Descendants.....
« Reply #58 on: April 08, 2014, 10:20:08 AM »
Hello,

A major royalty book was just launched at RDQ Weekend at Ticehurst, England:

"APAPA" - King Christian IX of Denmark and His Descendants....
This 302 page book spotlights the King and his wife, Queen Louise, and all their family up to the present day.  It was written by Coryne Hall and Arturo Beeche and is full of pictures of everyone.  Many new and unseen photographs from their archives.

As you probably know, Christian IX was 'The Father-in-law of Europe' - his children and their children marrying into the major monarchies of Europe.
Therefore, this book is a major reference for all of us into the royal families, of which we're interested!!

It can be purchased through Eurohistory.com or Hoogstrattens from The Hague, Netherlands.
ISBN: 978-0-9854603-4-1

Lol, a thick book of more black-and-white photos of inbred royals seems a bit obscene when there doesn't seem to have been written a full biography of Christian IX since the 1950s (Madol). After all, Christian IX and Queen Louise weren't just the sugary parents-in-law of Europe, but also the regnal couple who headed and supported the decades-long constitutional deadlock with a government that governed through permanent provisional ordinances, against a firm parliamentary majority.
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.
