10 Christian X
Often described as a "dumb blonde," Anne of Denmark, who became the queen of Scotland, England, and Ireland, through her marriage to King James VI and I, was an art connoisseur known for attending extravagant masques. She probably also converted to Catholicism later, going against James’s anti-Catholic stance.
Guthrum was a 9th-century king of East Anglia. A Great Summer Army leader, his aim was to unite with the Danish Army and conquer the Anglo Saxon kingdoms. The combined army won a few battles but lost at Edington, following which Guthrum was baptised and ruled East Anglia as Æthelstan.
Frederick IX of Denmark reigned as the king of Denmark from 1947 until his death in 1972. Under his reign, the Danish society experienced a rapid change; the economy received a massive boost in the 1960s which allowed women to enter the labor market. In 1982, Frederick's statue was unveiled in Copenhagen, ten years after his death.
