Frederik VIII of Denmark
Birth: Jun. 3, 1843
Kobenhavns Kommune
Hovedstaden, Denmark
Death: May 14, 1912
Hamburg, Germany

Danish Monarch. He reigned as King of Denmark from 1906 to 1912. Born to King Christian IX and Queen Louise of Denmark, he was 63 years when he himself became king, having been Crown Prince for 43 years. His father kept him away from official duties due to his liberal political views. In 1869 he was married to Princess Lovisa of Sweden-Norway, with whom he had 8 children. Their eldest son became King Christian X, and the younger son Carl was in 1905 elected king of Norway under the name of Haakon VII. In 1912 King Frederik secretly left his hotel, and went for a walk, and died in the streets of Hamburg from a stroke. He was unaccompanied and without indetification. He was brought to the city-morgue as an unknown individual, and only later in the morning it was revealed, that he was the King of Denmark. (bio by: Benny Chordt Hansen)
