PostNord Golden Wedding Anniversary Stamps
PostNord celebrates the Golden Wedding Anniversary of Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik who married fifty years ago on 10 June 1967 in the Holmens Kirke (the Naval Church), followed by a reception held at Fredensborg Palace.
King Richard I’s Heart
Forensic experts have analysed the remains of King Richard I’s heart who died after he was hit by a crossbow bolt during a siege.
He was known as Richard the Lionheart due to his reputation as a courageous military leader, especially during the Third Crusade. However, he spent about six months in England during his 10-year reign.
