King Christian I of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway (1426-81) is said to be a descendant of King Abel of Denmark. His mother Helvig of Schaumberg ()1398-1436) was the daughter of Count Gerhard VI of Holstein-Rendsburg Duke of Schelswig (k. 1404) and Katherine Elizabeth of Brunswick-Luneburg (d. 1417-22), daughter of Duke Magnus II "Torquatus" of Brunswick-Luneburg (1328?-killed 1373) THURINGIAN NOBILITY, and his wife Katherina of Anhalt (d. 1390), daughter of Prince Bernhard III of Anhalt (d. 1438). But obviously Duke Magnus II "Torquatus" of Brunswick-Luneburg's son Frederick (killed 1400) had a superior claim to be the heir of King Abel of Denmark than his sister Katherine Elizabeth of Brunswick-Luneburg the wife of Gerhard VI and grandmother of KIng Christian I of Denmark, Norway and Sweden did.

1. King Frederick I of Denmark and Norway. (1471-1533). Father of:

3. King Frederick II of Denmark and Norway. (1534-1588). Father of:

5. King Frederick III of Denmark and Norway. (1609-1670). Father of:

6. King Christian V of Denmark and Norway. (1646-1699). Father of:

7. King Frederick IV of Denmark and Norway. (1671-1730). Father of:

8. King Christian VI of Denmark and Norway. (1699-1746). Father of:

9. King Frederick V of Denmark and Norway. (1723-1766). Father of:

10. King Christian VII of Denmark and Norway. (1749-1808). Father of:

12. King Frederick VI of Denmark and Norway. (1768-1839). Lost Norway in 1814. First king without a a son to succeed in 10 generations. Succeeded by his cousin. Father of:

13. Caroline (1793-1881), only surviving child. Married her cousin Frederick Ferdinand Prince of Denmark (1792-1863). Childless. Sister of:

14. Wilhelmine (1808-91) Sister. Married first future King Frederick VII of Denmark (1808-1863). No Children. Married Second Karl Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg. No children. Cousin of:

15. Ernest Gunther, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein (1863-1921) , son of Duke Frederick VIII of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg (1829-80), son of Duke Christian August II of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg (1798-1869), son of Duke Fredrick Christian of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg (1765-1814) and Louisa Augusta of Denmark (1771-1843) daughter of number 10. King Christian VII. Ernest Gunther was childless. Brother of:

16. Augusta Victoria (1858-1921) Married German Emperor Wilhelm II (1859-1941) Mother of:

17. Crown Prince Wilhelm (1881-1951) Father of:

18. Prince Wilhelm of Prussia (1906-40) renounced his rights to throne when he made an unequal marriage. Father of:

20. Hubertus Christoph Joachim Friedrich von der Osten born 1964).

But if it is desired for the succession of Denmark to pass according to the dynastic laws of the Hohenzollerns, the heirs of # 17 Crown Prince Wilhelm are:

19. Louis Ferdinand, Prince of Prussia (1907-94) Grandfather of:

20. George Frederick Prince of Prussia (b. 1976) son of Louis Ferdinand (1944-77). Father of:

Prince Carl Friedrich (b. 2013).

But the childless number 15. Ernest Gunther adopted two of his cousins:

15. Johann George (1911-41) Childless. Brother of:

16. Marie Louisa (1908-69) Married first Baron Rudolf-Carl von Stengel and had children.

But there were doubts whether Louisa Augusta of Denmark (1771-1843) daughter of number 10. King Christian VII, really was his daughter. So perhaps the heir should be chosen from the next closest Danish relative whose paternity is not suspected. Then the heirs would be:

15. Alexander Frederick, Landgrave of Hesse-Cassel (1863-1945), son of Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Hesse-Cassel (1820-84), son of Wilhelm I, Landgrave of Hesse-Cassel-Rumpenheim (1787-1867) and his wife Princess Louise Charlotte of Denmark (1789-1864), daughter of Hereditary Prince of Denmark and Norway Frederick (1753-1805), son of number 9 King Frederick V. Made an unequal marriage, not stated if there were children. Brother of:

16. Frederick Landgrave of Hesse (1868-1914). Briefly King of Finland in 1918. Father of:

17. Philip, Landgrave of Hesse (1896-1980) Father of:

18. Moritz, Landgrave of Hesse (1926-2013) Father of:

19. Landgrave Heinrich Donatus Philipp Umberto of Hesse (b.1966) Married & has 2 sons and a daughter.

Of course the Danish succession law was agnatic (male only) so the heir of King Frederick VI in 1839 was:

13. King Christian VIII of Denmark (1786-1848) son of Hereditary Prince of Denmark and Norway Frederick (1753-1805), son of number 9 King Frederick V. H was briefly King Christian Frederick of Norway in 1814. Father of:

14. King Fredrick VII (1808-1863). Only child of his father. No children. And then the succession by agnatic (male only) primogeniture passed to distant cousins which will be covered in another post.

21. Christoph Duke of Schleswig-Holstein (born 1949).

King Christian IX (1818-1906) of Denmark was selected to be the heir while having two older brothers and some senior cousins alive, so he was not the Genealogical agnatic heir of the House of Oldenburg.

But KIng Haakon b probaly renounced his rights to the Danish throne when becoming King of Norway. So the next inline after him would be Count Philip Oluf Axel Ulrich of Rosenborg (b. 1986) son of count Oluf of Rosenborg (123-1990) who lost his rights s to the throne when he made and unequal marriage, son of Prince Harald of Denmark (1876-1949 younger brother of King Christian X. But since Count Oluf of Rosenborg renounced his rights to the throne, the next heir would be Adnthe only other agnatic descendants of King Christian IX are the Royal family of Greece and the descendants of QueeenElizabeth Ii of the UK.

Meanwhile King Frederick IX was succeeded by his daughter:

Crown Prince Frederick (b. 1968) older son. Father of:

Prince Christian (b. 2005) older son.

In 1990 the succession was changed to absolute primogeniture, so that the oldest child inherits whether boy or girl, but But both Crown Prince Frederick and Prince Christian are the oldest children of their parents and are unaffected by the new rule..

The lineage of King Frederick I of Denmark and Norway starts out with a simple sequence of father to son successions,and then gets messed up with complicated relationships and different possible rules of succession and results in about seven different possible heirs.

The present dynasty of Denmark is descended from King Christian IX (reigned 1863-1906) of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderberg-Glucksburg, a branch of the House of Oldenburg. The heirs of King Christian IX are traced in the second part of post number 13 on page 2 of this thread.

The heirs of the previous branch of the House of Oldenburg to rule Denmark, descended from King Frederick I who usurped the throne in 1523, are traced in posts 12 and 13 on page 2 of this thread.

The previous monarchs of Denmark were the last three kings of the Union of Kalmar from 1448-1523, Christian I, John, and Christian II. There doesn't seem to be a post about their heirs on this thread.

The monarchs of Denmark before them were the first three monarchs of the Union of Kalmar from 1387-1448, Margaret I, Erik of Pomerania, and Christopher III. They are covered in posts # 5, 6, & 7 of this thread. Posts 6 & 7 correct post # 5.

Post # 1 on page 1 traces the heirs of Kings Erik V, Erik VI, Christopher II, Waldemar IV & Olaf II of Denmark ruling from 1259 to 1387. It started out as a list of the heirs of King Waldemar IV, but I thought I should make a list of the heirs of his father King Christopher II just in case there were no descendants of Waldemar IV, and it turned out that I had to go a generation farther back to King Erik V to trace the heirs of those kings. Note that King Erik V of Denmark was the only surviving son of King Christopher I of Denmark, and that Christopher I was a brother of King Erik IV and King Abel, sons of King Waldemar II. Post # 1 is now obsolete and needs to be replaced with another post tracing the correct descent.

King Erik V was the son and heir of King Christopher I of Denmark, as said above, and King Christopher I was the younger brother of King Abel (reigned 1250-1252). The heirs of king Abel were traced in post # 11 on page 2 of this thread.

King Erik IV "Plow Penny" was the oldest son of King Waldemar II and oldest surviving brother of King Abel and King Christopher I. His heirs are traced on post # 10 on page 1.

The heirs of King Waldemar I the Great (reigned 1154-1182) are traced through King Canute, King Waldemar II, and King Erik IV King Erik IV "Plow Penny", as well as King Waldemar of Sweden, in posts 8 & 9 on page 1 of this thread. So posts 8, 9 & 11 cover the Kings of Denmark from 1154 to 1250.

And before King Waldemar I the Great there was a rather chaotic period with a lot of usurpation by members of different branches of the Danish royal family, so there are a number of posts more to make before King Gorm the Old, the first fully historical king, is reached, to say nothing of legendary monarchs like Ragnar Lothbrok.

Heirs of the last three monarchs of the Union of Kalmar, who ruled over Denmark from 1448 to 1523.

Erick of Pomerania, King of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, was overthrown in 1440-41 by discontented nobles who couldn't wait for the old king to die and made his nephew Christopher (1416-48) king in Erik's place. But King Christopher died young and childless in 1448. The nobles didn't recall Erik to the throne, but searched for another heir, which wasn't easy because all of Erik's close relatives descended from the royal families of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, had died off making Erik the only survivor. Count Christian XIX of Oldenburg (1426-1481), who had some descents from previous Scandinavian kings, was selected as the new heir and became King of Norway and Denmark in 1448 and King of Sweden in 1457.

Since the claim to be the heirs of the last three monarchs of the Union of Kalmar, who ruled over Denmark from 1448 to 1523, passed by male preference primogeniture to the house of Habsburg-Lorraine it should be inherited from Franz Joseph that way. But the heirs by agnatic (male only) primogeniture, of the claim of Emperor Franz Joseph to be the heir of the last three kings of the Union of Kalmar are:

Heirs of Kings Niels, Magnus and Canute V of Denmark.

Swend II Estridsen (c. 1020?-1074) became king of Denmark in 1047, founding the Dynasty of Estridsen. He had about 20 illegitimate sons, and Niels was the fifth and last of them to become king of Denmark in 1104. He was forced by Emperor Lothar to do homage and pay a fine. He was murdered in Schleswig on 25 June 1134.

5. Neils Magnussen (d. 1158?) No recorded children. Either Canute V or Neils Magnussen was the last legitimate descendant of King Niels. However, King Niels became king despite being illegitimate, so illegitimate descents from him could count.

This line of heir seems fairly solid and so Count Friedrich Magnus VI of Solms-Wildenfels is probably the heir of kings Niels, Magnus, and Canute V of Denmark, if a daughter of King Canute V of Denmark actually was the wife of Heinrich/Henry (1170?-1251/52) Count of Anhalt.

Heirs of Kings Niels, Magnus and Canute V of Denmark. Part Two.

In post number 16 on page 2 of this tread I said that Archbishop Valdemer, the last certain descendant of Danish kings Niels, Magnus and Canute V, die din 1236, but some sources claim that King Canute V had four illegitimate daughters who married.

In post number 16 I traced the heirs of the marriage of one such alleged daughter of Canute V with Duke Bernhard of Saxony down to the present. Of course there are some problems with this, starting in the first generation with my uncertainty whether the children of Duke Bernhard of Saxony actually had a daughter of King Canute V of Saxony as their mother. And there is a little uncertainty whether Anna of Anhalt (d.1492) daughter of George Prince of Anhalt Zerbst (d. 1474) and his wife Mechtild of Anhalt Bernberg (d. before 1434) was the mother of the children of her husband Johann I Count of Honstein Heldrungen. I have not found any recorded descendants of Christine Dorothea (1699-1752). the oldest daughter of Heinrich XIII Count of Reuss Untergreiz (d. 1733) and her husband Konrad Ernest Maximilian Count of Hochberg(1682-1742), but if there are descendants their claim to be heirs of Kings Niels, Magnus and Canute V of Denmark would be senior to that of the present heir in post number 16 Count Friedrich Magnus VI of Solms-Wildenfels (born 1927).

So here I trace the heirs of another alleged daughter of Canute V, Hildegard, who married Jaromor of Rugen. Canute V of Denmark - Wikipedia - Jaromar I, Prince of Rügen - Wikipedia

1. HIldegarde possible daughter of Canute V and possible wife of Prince Jaromor of Rugen (d. 1217/18). Canute V of Denmark - Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaromar_I,_Prince_of_R%C3%BCge
Some co sources suggest Jaromor's wife was a daughter of Duke Bogislaw I of Pomerania instead. POMERANIA Posssible mother of:

2. Barnuta (d.1236/37) Possibly older son. Father of:

3. Dobislaw (d. 1247?) Lord of Gristow. Father of:

4. Johann Lord of Gristow (d. 1289/90) POMERANIA Father of:

5. Johann II Lord of Gristow (d. 1345) POMERANIA Father of:

6. Bertram I No recorded children. Brother of:

7. Werner I. Father of:

8-11 four sons who seem to have died by 1362 without children. Grand nephews of:

Ida, daughter of Johann I, married Johann Dotenberg (d. before 1344) and might have descendants. Another line of descent from Prince Jaromar of Rugen is:

2. Wizlaw I Prince of Rugen (d. 1250/56) Possibly older son of Number 1. POMERANIA Father of:

3. Jaromar II Prince of Rugen (killed 1260) father of:

4. Wizlaw II Prince of Rugen (d. 1302) POMERANIA Father of:

5. Wizlaw III Prince of Rugen (d. 1325) Father of:

6. Agnes of Rugen (d. 1337) POMERANIA Married Albrecht II Count of Anhalt (d. 1360/62. No children. Cousin of:

7. Bogislaw V Duke of Pomerania (1318?-73) Son of Wartislaw I Duke of Pomerania (1291-1326), son of Bogislaw IV Duke of Pomerania (before 1258-1309) and his second wife Margareta of Rugen, daughter of # 4 Prince Wizlaw II. POMERANIA Married Elizabeth of Poland, daughter of King Kasimir III. Father of:

8. Duke Kasimir IV of Pomerania,(1351?-77) Childless. Brother of:

7. Elizabeth of Pomerania (1347-1393) Married Emperor Charles IV, King of Bohemia (1316-78. POMERANIA Mother of:

8. Sigismund (1368-1437) Margrave of Brandenburg 1378-95, King of Hungary, King of Bohemia 1420, king of the Romans 1411, Emperor 1433. BOHEMIA Father of:

11. Anna (1432-62) Older sister Married Wilhelm II Landgrave of Thuringia (1425-82) Mother of:

12. Margareta (1449-1501) older daughter. AUSTRIA Married Johann Cicero of Brandeburg (1455-1499. Mother of:

13. Elector Joachim Nestor of Brandenburg (1484-1535) BRANDENBURG Father of:

14. Elector Joachim II of Brandenburg (1505-71) Hohenzollern Part 2 Faterh of:

16. Elector Joachim Friedrich of Brandenburg (1546-1608) Hohenzollern Part 3 Father of:

17. Elector Johann Sigismund of Brandenburg (1572-1620) Father of:

18. Elector Georg Wilhelm of Brandenburg (1595-1640) Father of:

19. Elector Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg (1620-1688) Father of:

20. Friedrich I King in Prussia (1657-1713) Hohenzollern Part 3 - Prussia Father of:

21. Friedrich Wilhelm I King in Prussia (1678-1740) Father of:

22. Friedrich II King of Prussia (1712-86) Childless. Uncle of:

23. Friedrich Wilhelm II King of Prussia (1744-97) son of Prince August Wilhelm (1722-58) Father of:

24. Friedrich Wilhelm III King of Prussia (1770-1840) Father of:

26. Wilhelm I German Emperor (1797-1888) Father of:

27. Friedrich III German Emperor (1831-88) Father of:

28. Wilhelm II German Emperor (1859-1941) Father of:

29. Wilhelm Crown Prince of Germany (1882-1951) Grandfather of:

30. Princess Felicitas of Prussia (1934-2009) daughter of Prince Wilhelm of Prussia (1906-40) Married first Dinnies von der Osten (b. 1929) Prussia Mother of:

31. Hubertas Christoph Joachim Friedrich von der Osten (b. 1964). Princess Felicitas of Prussia - Wikipedia

This line of succession seems more solid than that in post number 16, with the main uncertainty being whether the wife of Prince Jaromar of Rugen was a daughter of King Canute V of Denmark.

Heirs of King Erik I Evergood of Denmark Part One.

Therese are the heirs of King Erik I Evergood through King Erik II, King Svend III, and King Erik III Lamb, of Denmark.

King Erik II (d. 1137) was an illegitimate son of King Erik I (d. 1103).

1. King Erik II (d. 1137) King of Denmark 1134-37, DENMARK KINGS Father of:

2. King Swend III Eriksen (killed 1157) illegitimate son. King of Denmark 1152-57 Father of:

3. Liutgard married 1180? Berthold II Margrave of Istria and Count of Andechs (d. 1188). DENMARK KINGS Mother of:

4. Poppo (d. 1245. Bishop of Bamburg 1239. Brother of:

5. Berta. Abbess of Gebstedt bei Eisleben 1190. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/CARINTHIA.htm#BernhardIIAndechsdied1188B

And that seems to be the end of the descendants of King Erik II and King Svend III of Denmark.

King Erik I of Denmark (d. 1103) had an illegitimate daughter Ragnhild who married a Jarl named Haakon Sunnivasson, son of a unnamed man and Sunniva daughter of Haakon Ivarsson and Ragnhild daughter of King Magnus I of Norway. NORWAY NOBILITY Ragnhild and Haakon had a son, King Erik III Lamb.

1. King Erik III Lamb of Denmark (d. 1146) DENMARK KINGS King of Denmark 1137-46. Only Danish ruler to abdicate. Father of:

2. Magnus Eriksen Illegitimate son. Mentioned 1138, imprisoned 1178. No recorded children. DENMARK KINGS

And that seems to be the end of the descendants of King Erik III.

So King Erik I has no present day descendants through Kings Erik II, Svend III, or Erik III. Fortunately for King Erik I there are descendants of at least two of his other children.

Byran Vahram John Blundell-Hollinshead-Blundell (born 2005) son.

Since the claim to be heirs of King Valdemar I passed by male preference primogeniture to the house of Habsburg-Lorraine I assume it should be inherited from Franz Joseph that way. The heirs by agnatic (male only) primogeniture ,of the claim of Emperor Franz Joseph to be the heirs of King Erik I are:

33. Maximilian, Duke of Hohenberg (1902-1962) the older son of Archduke Franz Ferdinand (1863-1914), who was the older son of Archduke Karl Ludwig (1833-1896), a brother of number 31 Emperor Franz Joseph. http://www.angelfire.com/realm/gotha/gotha/austria.html Father of:

35. George Duke of Hohenberg (born 1929). Father of:

Prince Nikolaus of Hohenberg (born 1961). father of:
