Christian VIII - engelsk udgave
Christian VIII ruled Denmark from 1839 to 1848 as the country’s last
absolute monarch; in 1814 he was also briefly Norway’s first constitutional
king, and he took the initiative to introduce the constitutions of
both Norway and Denmark. Christian VIII and Queen Caroline Amalie
lived during a time that was characterized by political unrest but also
by cultural richness, and their circle of acquaintances included Hans
Christian Andersen, N.F.S. Grundtvig, Bertel Thorvaldsen, C.W. Eckersberg,
Adam Oehlenschläger, and H.C. Ørsted.
This book is part of the Crown Series, a series of small books on the
Danish monarchy and related subjects published in cooperation with
the Royal Danish Collection.
