interesting facts:
When it turned out that King Frederick IX and Queen Ingrid would not live to see a male heir, the Parliament was asked to amend the Constitution in such a way that also each of the three daughters of the king had the right to the throne of Denmark. The change was approved in both houses of parliament and a referendum and in 1953 the oldest daughter - Ingrid Margrethe Alexandrine Þórhildur became heir to the throne. King Frederick died on January 14, 1972. The same day Queen Margrethe II sat on the throne of Denmark- the first queen of Denmark, from the death of Queen Margaret I in 1412.
