Christian V
Birth: Apr. 15, 1646
Death: Aug. 25, 1699

Danish-Norwegian Monarch. He reigned as King of Denmark and Norway from 1670 to 1699. His parents were King Frederik III and Queen Sophie Amalie von Braunschweig-Lüneburg. As Crown Prince, he went on a European tour that brought him to England and France. He spent time at the court of Louis XIV of France, whom he later tried to emulate as King. The 1st King to inherit the throne as an absolute monarch, Charles V was extremely kind and obliging, and thus he was a very popular ruler. He did not tolerate any attempts to diminish his absolute power, however. An eager and skilled hunter and sportsman, he was very courageous, and he was the last King that personally led his troops into battle. Unfortunately, he was a mediocre field commander, and he lost the 1675 to 1679 war with Sweden, where he tried to reclaim his fathers lost provinces of Scania, Halland and Blekinge. In 1667 he was married to princess Charlotte Amalie von Hessen-Kassel, with whom he had 7 children. The King died of his wounds after a hunting-accident. (bio by: Benny Chordt Hansen)
