Denmark, Norway, Greece, United Kingdom… Charles III’s extended family

From the 19th century, the Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg dynasty multiplied crowns as the European royal panorama blossomed. Christian IX became King of Denmark in 1863, his son William, King of Greece, the same year, and his grandson Charles, King of Norway, in 1905. This great ancestor and some others have a great-grandson of Christian IX. , Charles III, now King of the United Kingdom, is relative of all sovereigns.

Of course, the Windsors reign across the Channel, and since 1917, Charles III’s grandfather, King George V, decreed that his dynasty would bear no other name. Indeed, since the accession in 1901, Edward VII, son of Queen Victoria, Hanoverian and Prince Albert, Saxe-Coburg-Gothas, has occupied the throne of the United Kingdom in the patriarchal line.

This general name of the “House of Windsor,” if it is topical, conceals a new change of dynasty across the Channel, where, if we use, not a fancy in the last centuries, the Prince of Schleswig-Holstein-Sanderborg—now enthroned Glucksburg. Charles III was the son of Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, who was chosen as a Briton to be called Mountbatten, the anglicized name of his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg.
