Biography

Margrethe was not born to be monarch, even though she was the eldest child of a Crown Prince, later King. At the time of her birth, only males could ascend the throne of Denmark, due to the changes in succession laws enacted in the 1850s when the Glücksburg branch was chosen to succeed. As she had no brothers it was assumed that her uncle Knud would one day assume the throne. Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (in Danish: Slesvig-Holsten-Sønderborg-Lyksborg (or Glücksborg)), from Glücksburg in northernmost Germany, is a line of the House of Oldenburg (Danish: Oldenborg), to which the royal houses of Denmark, Norway, and the former royal house of Greece belong. ...


The process of changing the constitution started in 1947, when it became clear that Queen Ingrid would have no more children. At this time Margrethe's uncle Prince Knud was the Heir Presumptive, but the popularity of Frederik and his daughters and the more prominent role of women in Danish life started the complicated process of altering the constitution. That proposal had to be passed by two parliaments in succession and then by a referendum, which was held on 27 March 1953. The new Act of Succession permitted female succession to the throne of Denmark, according to male-preference primogeniture, similar to that in use in the United Kingdom. Princess Margrethe therefore became the Heiress Presumptive. Hereditary Prince Knud of Denmark, (Knud Christian Frederik Michael) 27 July 1900 – 14 June 1976, was the second son and youngest child of King Christian X and Queen Alexandrine. ...

On 10 June 1967 Princess Margrethe of Denmark married a French diplomat, Henri de Laborde de Monpezat at the Naval Church.

Constitutional role

The Kingdom of Denmark is a constitutional monarchy, which means that the sovereign cannot perform political acts independently. Although the queen signs all acts of legislation before they can become law, these only come into effect when they have been countersigned by a cabinet minister. As the head of state, the queen participates in the formation of a new government. This does not cite any references or sources. ... A cabinet is a body of high-ranking members of government, typically representing the executive branch. ... A minister or a secretary is a politician who heads a government ministry or department (e. ...


After consultation with representatives of the political parties, the leader of the party which holds the largest number of seats in the Danish parliament is invited to form a new government. Once it has been formed, the monarch formally appoints it. Additionally, it is the queen who is the real head of the government and therefore presides over the Council of State, where the acts of legislation which have been passed by parliament are signed into law.


The prime minister of Denmark and the Danish foreign minister report regularly to the queen to notify and advise her on the latest political developments. Her Majesty hosts official visits by foreign heads of state and pays state visits abroad. The queen receives every ambassador from foreign countries represented in Denmark and also formally appoints and dismisses civil servants. This is a list over the heads of government in Denmark, from the establishment of a constitutional monarchy in 1849 until present. ...


The queen's main tasks are to represent the Kingdom abroad and to be a unifying figurehead at home. The queen performs the latter task by accepting invitations to open exhibitions, attending anniversaries, inaugurating bridges, etc. As an unelected public official, the queen takes no part in party politics and does not express any political opinions. In addition to her roles in her own country, the queen is also the Colonel-in-Chief of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (Queen's and Royal Hampshires), an infantry regiment of the British Army, following a tradition in her family. In the British and other Commonwealth armies, the Colonel-in-Chief of a regiment is its (usually Royal) patron. ...

The Queen is an accomplished and critically-acclaimed painter, and has held many art shows over the years. It is often said that were she not the Queen, she could easily make a living as a professional artist. Her illustrations—under the pseudonym Ingahild Grathmer—were used for the Danish edition of The Lord of the Rings published in 1977 and the re-issue in 2002. She is also an accomplished translator and is said to have participated in the Danish translation of "Lord of the Rings". She also designs some of her own clothes. Margrethe is a chain smoker, and she is famous for her tobacco habit. However, on November 23, 2006 the Danish newspaper B.T. reported an announcement from the Royal Court stating that the queen would never again be seen smoking in public. Still, the queen does continue to smoke but in the future she will do so only privately. The announcement is probably due to the fact that the Danish parliament recently has decided on strict rules concerning smoking.[1] Painting by Rembrandt self-portrait Detail from Las Meninas by Diego Velazquez, in which the painter portrayed himself at work For the computer graphics program, see Corel Painter. ...

A statement in a 2005 authorized biography about the queen (entitled Margrethe) focused on Islam: "We are being challenged by Islam these years. Globally as well as locally. There is something impressive about people for whom religion imbues their existence, from dusk to dawn, from cradle to grave. There are also Christians who feel this way. There is something endearing about people who give themselves up completely to their faith. But there is likewise something frightening about such a totality, which also is a feature of Islam. A counterbalance has to be found, and one has to, at times, run the risk of having unflattering labels placed on you. For there are some things for which one should display no tolerance. And when we are tolerant, we must know whether it is because of convenience or conviction." [2]


In her 1984 annual New Year's speech, the Queen of Denmark had cautioned the Danish people to remember to be kind and hospitable towards immigrants. The topics of tolerance, immigration and freedom of speech also featured in her 2006 speech.
