Boreanesia said somewhere that the Royal family of the SR is approximately that of Denmark *here*. So here is a list upon which to build, starting with the late 15th century.

House of Oldenburg

  • 1448-1481 : Christian I - born 1426
  • 1481-1513 : Hans - born 1455, son of Christian I
  • 1513-1523 : Christian II - born 1481, son of Hans
  • 1523-1533 : Frederik I - born 1471, son of Christian I, brother of Hans
  • 1534-1559 : Christian III - born 1503, son of Frederik I
  • 1559-1588 : Frederik II - born 1534, son of Christian III
  • 1588-1648 : Christian IV - born 1577, son of Frederik II
  • 1648-1670 : Frederik III - born 1609, son of Christian IV
  • 1670-1699 : Christian V - born 1646, son of Frederik III
  • 1699-1730 : Frederik IV - born 1671, son of Christian V
  • 1730-1746 : Christian VI - born 1699, son of Frederik IV. His youngest sister Dorotea married Lord Peter de la Pole, younger son of England's Earl of Suffolk. Their son, Albert, married Queen Victoria I of England and Scotland.
  • 1746-1766 : Frederik V - born 1723, son of Christian VI
  • 1766-1808 : Christian VII - born 1749, son Frederik V
  • 1808-1839 : Frederik VI - born 1768, son of Christian VII
  • 1839-1848 : Christian VIII - born 1786, grandson of Frederik V
  • 1848-1863 : Frederik VII - born 1808, son of Christian VIII

Here, the evident sterility of the beloved (if odd) Frederik VII resulted in a crisis of succession. Christian VIII's niece Louise of Hesse and his first cousin once removed, Christian IX, ascended the throne of Denmark, officially as Queen Consort and King Regnant

  • 1863-1906 : Christian IX - born 1818, son of Friedrich Wilhelm, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Gl├╝cksburg and Louise Caroline, Princess of Hesse. Through his mother, Christian was a great-grandson of Frederik V of Denmark. In 1842 he married Luise of Hesse-Kassel, a niece of Christian VIII. His daughter Alexandra married Albert I and was mother to James V. His other daughter Dagmar wed Tsar Alexander III of Russia.
  • 1906-1912 : Frederik VIII - born 1843, son of Christian IX
  • 1912-1947 : Christian X - born 1870, son of Frederik VIII
  • 1947-1972 : Frederik IX - born 1899, son of Christian X
  • Since 1972  : Margrethe II - born 1940, daughter of Frederik IX
