THE ONLY ‘REAL’ QUEEN SURVIVED
Although her youth years, when she was remembered as one of the most beautiful women in the world, have long been left behind by calendar calculations, the youth in her soul is still in place. Moreover, after a tragic event, she has a new title: the world’s only living ‘real’ queen. In other words, ‘the world’s only surviving ‘born’ queen.”
CELEBRATING 50TH ANNIVERSARY OVER THE DEATH OF THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND
The person we are talking about is Queen Margrethe II, who has been on the throne of Denmark for 50 years. If Queen Elizabeth II had not passed away last week, perhaps she would have made the headlines of the world press. Although eclipsed by the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who is celebrating her 70th year on the throne, Margrethe celebrated half a century of reign as her distant cousin breathed his last.
NOW IN SECOND RANK: By the way, let us remind you that with the death of Elizabeth II, the title of the longest reigning monarch was taken over by the Brunei Sultan Bolkiah, and the Danish Queen Margrethe the 2nd placed second after her.
HE RECEIVED THE THROW FROM HIS FATHER, NOT THROUGH MARRIAGE
There are many women in the world who marry a crown prince or king and take the title of queen. But 82-year-old Margrethe is not one of them. Because his title comes from his blood ties, that is, his family. Let’s take a closer look at Margrethe, who is known as ‘the only real living queen of the world’.
THIRD DEGREE RELATIVE
The only thing Margrethe has in common with Queen Elizabeth II isn’t that they’re both the longest-serving female monarchs. The great-great-grandmother of both is Queen Victoria. So both queens are third cousins. Queen Margrethe had stated that Elizabeth always inspired her and saw her as an older sister.
‘I DIDN’T WANT TO COME TO THE THROUGHOUT AT ANY AGE AS HE IS’
Margrethe also spoke about Queen Elizabeth in an interview with ITV News. Margrethe also said in that interview that Elizabeth devoted her life to her work and was aware of what that meant. Like Elizabeth, Margrethe did not ascend to the throne at the age of 26, she was 31 when her father passed away and took over the throne.
LILIBET AND DAISY: Two distant cousins called each other by nicknames, Queen Margrethe told me. So, according to them, one was Lilibet and the other was Daisy.
SOME PROGRAMS CANCELED
Queen of Denmark 2nd Margrethe celebrated the 50th anniversary of her accession to the throne last week. Golden JubileeGala dinner was held at the royal palace in Copenhagen. In other words, while England was mourning the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Denmark was celebrating the 50th anniversary of its queen’s accession to the throne. In addition to Margrethe’s family, royal families from Norway, Greece and Sweden were also guests of this celebration. However, some celebration programs were canceled due to the death of the Queen of England.
SHARE THE SAME FATE IN SOME MATTERS
In fact, Margrethe and her distant cousin Elizabeth had to deal with similar familial problems. Elizabeth’s tensions with her grandchildren William and Harry, Margrethe also experienced because of her two sons, Frederik and Joachim, and their wives, Mary and Marie. Even his youngest son Joachim went to his hometown of France with his wife for a while. Moreover, allegedly, the source of this tension is the two brides of Queen Margrethe. In other words, behind the closed doors of the palace in Copenhagen, a real “war of the hands” took place. The truth is, that notebook wasn’t completely closed either.
THE FRENCH BRIDE WAS AT A TIME WITH HIS FAMILY AND GOES TO HIS COUNTRY
Born to an aristocratic family in France, Marie married Queen Margrethe’s younger son Joachim and entered the family as a bride. By the way, let us remind you that Marie is Joachim’s second wife. The couple has two children, a girl and a boy. Crown Prince Frederik’s wife, Mary, is Australian.
FUTURE HOLDERS OF THE DENMARK THROUGH
The exact cause of tension between the Danish court’s Australian bride Princess Mary (above) and the French bride Princess Marie is unknown, but there are speculations. The reason for this tension, which can be experienced “in every palace and in every period of history”, is actually the power struggle between the two couples. The elder Prince Frederik is poised to take the throne soon after his mother, Queen Margrethe II. Naturally, his wife, Mary, will also become queen.
Dominant MARY DISTURBED: However, Prince Joachim and his wife Princess Marie do not have such a claim to the throne. But Princess Mary’s greater influence in the family also bothers Joachim and his wife, Marie. In fact, it is said that this tension is not only between the two elders, Mary and Marie, but also that his wives Frederik and Joachim have a share in the rise of tension.
HE HAS BEEN HEROED BY THE LAW OF 1953
Having thus recalled this tension, let’s take a brief look at the throne story of Queen Margrethe II. Queen Margrethe was born in 1940. She was the eldest child of King Frederick IX of Denmark and Ingrid, a Swedish princess. One of the sisters of Anne Marie, the last queen of Greece. His other sister is Princess Benedikte of Denmark. Margrethe, her father’s eldest child, became crown princess thanks to the 1953 law that allowed girls to be heirs to the throne.
HIS HUSBAND TAKES THE TITLE OF THE CONSORT PRINCE
She ascended the throne as queen on January 14, 1972, following the death of her father. She made her mark in history as the first female ruler of Denmark after Margrethe I, who was the ruler of the Scandinavian Kingdoms. She married French Henri Marie Jean André de Laborde de Monpezat in 1967. His wife served the country as Consort Prince Henrik until 2018, when he died. The couple has two sons, Frederik and Joachim, from this marriage.
The Queen of Denmark, Margrethe II, holds the title of “the world’s only living queen” after the death of the Queen of England. The reason for this title is that the king ascends to the throne after his father, that is, it is clear that he will come to this task from birth. In addition, in many countries of the world, there are also those who marry crown princes and take this title. By the way, let’s remember them too.
FATHER CAN’T GO TO THE WEDDING
Today, everyone knows Máxima Zorreguieta Cerruti, who was born in Argentina, as Queen Maxima of the Netherlands. Maxima, the daughter of Jorge Zorreguita, one of the ministers of the military dictatorship period in Argentina, married the crown prince of the Netherlands, Willem-Alexander, in 2002. Willem-Alexander became king of his country after his mother abdicated. In this way, Maxima also received the title of queen. The couple has three daughters. Maxima’s father, on the other hand, was not invited to his daughter’s wedding on the grounds that he served in a putschist government and that this would harm the Netherlands.
OLD MESSENGER, NEW QUEEN
Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano is a former TV presenter and reporter. In 2004, she married the heir to the Spanish throne, Felipe. This was Letizia’s second marriage. When his father left the throne in 2014, Felipe, who was known as the Prince of Asturias until then, took the throne as the king. His wife Letizia also took the title of queen. The couple has three children.
COMING FROM A NOBLE FAMILY
Queen Mathilde of Belgium comes from a noble family. She also holds the distinction of being the first Belgian origin queen of She country. She married Philippe, who was a prince at the time, in 1999. After Philippe’s father abdicated due to health problems in 2013, the couple took the titles of king and queen.
THE HERO OF THE FATHER OF THE OLDEST Daughters
Another royal family, which is at least as prominent in the world as England, is in Sweden. Queen Slyvie is also a few steps ahead of her rivals in popularity. Queen of Sweden, named Silvia Renate Sommerlath GermanyHe was born in His father was German and his mother Brazilian. She met Carl Gustaf, the crown prince of the time, during the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. They got married in 1976. Carl Gustaf’s story is a little different. He inherited the throne from his grandfather, not from his father. Because the prince’s father died in a plane crash when he was only 9 months old. When his grandfather, King Gustav 6th Adolf, died, Carl Gustav became king and his wife Sylvia became queen. The couple has three children. The heir to the throne is their eldest daughter, Princess Victoria.
BEFORE HIDING THEIR RELATIONSHIP
Queen Sonja of Norway also got this title by marriage. Born Sonja Haraldsen in Oslo, the Queen was the daughter of a merchant. She met King Harald of Norway, who was a prince at that time, in 1959. The couple married in 1968. They also hid their relationship from the public at first, because Sonja did not come from a noble family. When the king died in 1991, his son took the throne, and Sonja became the consort queen, just as Camilla is today. The couple’s daughter, Martha Louise, left the palace and preferred an ordinary life. Their son, Haakon, who became crown prince, also married a commoner. Moreover, despite her second marriage to the crown prince, their bride Matte Merit soon won the love of the people. So when the throne passes to Haakon, Norway will have a queen who is not blue-blooded.
NOW MORE POPULAR THAN THE KING
Now let’s look at Jordan. Queen Rania, or Rania el Yasin, as she was before the bride-to-be, was born on August 31, 1970 in Kuwait, to a family of Palestinian origin. She was educated at an English school in the same country as she. During the First Gulf War, he moved to Egypt with his father and mother, who were doctors. Rania studied business administration at the American University in Cairo. She then continued her education in London and the USA. It is stated that the couple met at a party and decided to get married in six months. She, too, took the title of queen when her husband, Abdullah, ascended the throne after her father in 1999. Although she joined the family later, Rania has become more popular than her husband in recent years. She challenges her rivals in the world, especially with her clothing.
THE LAST TWO YEARS HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT
Although it is ruled by principality, not royalty, we can add Princess Charlene of Monaco to this list. Born in Zimbabwe, Charlene Lynette Wittstock actually comes from a background that has nothing to do with the monarchy. Charlene, a former Olympic swimmer, married Prince Alber 2 of Monaco in 2011. In this way, she received the title of Princess of Monaco. For the past year and a half, Charlene has been coming up with the ups and downs of her life. Claimed to be unhappy in her marriage, Charlene also struggled with unexplained health problems. Looks like the bad days are over now, she. (PHOTOS: AVALON, ALAMY, MEGA NEWS AGENCY)
