Photographer's Note

Schloss Glücksburg - or Lyksborg Slot, in Danish - really deserves its nickname as a "cradle of Europe".

King Christian IX of Denmark did not only become progenitor of the present Glücksburg line on the Danish throne. He also became the "father-in-law of Europe".
His first daughter married King Edward VII of Great Britain, his second daughter Tsar Alexander III of Russia. His son Wilhelm was elected King of Greece, and his grandson Carl eventually was elected King of Norway.
The descendants of Christian IX can be found in the royal families of Belgium, England, Greece, Yougoslavia, Luxembourg, Monaco, Norway, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Germany and Austria.

If you look at the pleasant and cosy interior of this castle: only a logical consequence!
