At the end of the 1800s, the Danish King, Christian IX and his wife, Queen Louise, married
their six children into the dominating European royal families and Christian IX became
known as 'Europe's Father-In-law'. Today, his descendants are to be found all over
These are their stories, stories of power, love, triumph, tragedy and honour, recounted
through interviews and never before published letters; photographs and home movie
footage, by over 30 members of the European royal family.
Anecdotes handed down through generations give insight into a Europe ruled by 'dynasty
politics' where arranged marriages created alliances between countries.
