KIng Crhistian X.When Prince Christian (10th) was born, his grandfather had been King of Denmark for almost seven years. However, it would be 35 years before he became Crown Prince, and from there another six years until he himself could ascend the Danish throne as the third regent of the Glücksborg line. With the slogan “My God, my Country, my Glory” he ruled Denmark from 1912 until 1947. The king’s reign was thus framed by the two world wars. Photo: © Amalienborg Museum, Kongernes Samling
