Ingrid
Original name:  Ingrid Victoria Sofia Louise Margareta of Sweden
Birth: Mar. 28, 1910
Death: Nov. 7, 2000

Queen of Denmark. She was born a Bernadotte princess of Sweden, and her parents were King Gustav VI Adolf and Crown Princess Margareta, an English princess (Wettin-Windsor Dynasty). As Princess of Sweden she devoted herself mainly to humanitarian and philanthropic endeavors, especially concerned with the blind and the deaf. Married in 1935 to Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, later King Frederik IX, she gave birth to 3 daughters: Queen Regnant Margrethe II of Denmark, Princess Benedikte of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Ex-Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, clearing the way for female succession to be introduced in Denmark. She brought her interest in social services with her there. During WW2, as Nazi Germany overran of their country, the Crown Prince and Princess, like her father-in-law the king, were widely respected for staying in the country and showing careful doses of contempt toward the unwelcome occupation forces. Her husband was exceedingly popular among the Danes and Queen Ingrid too was to become dearly beloved by the people of Denmark and  by her family.  (bio by: Benny Chordt Hansen)
