    Default Can anyone identify this officer?

    Hello

    I have a print of a member of the Danish Royal Family wearing the uniform of the Royal Danish Life Guards.
    I think it might be King Christian 9th, but I am not sure.
    Can anyone identify this image, and say who the officer is?
    The print is described as " Danske Billeder Nr 314
    and appears to have been sold at the Danish National Museum in 1977.
    Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to the forum. I'd say he looks rather like Christian 10, see here.

    Maybe King Christian X





    Edit: someone else beat me to it

    Christian X used to ride around Nazi occupied Copenhagen among the citizens, alone on his horse, without any guards

    Thanks for that very useful reply - and the excellent images also!

    I think you are right - it is very similar to the pictures you have posted of Christian X.
    I have seen the photos of hime riding in Copenhagen, but he is shown wearing his day uniform. As my image shows the full dress, I was not sure it was the same King. But I now believe it is.

    Thanks very much.
