anonymous asked:

hey! so i saw your danish right? and i was kinda curious, i'm from the u.s. virgin islands and we have a ton of danish tourists because like 100 years ago we used to belong to denmark and i was wondering if it's like something everyone knows abt or if it's just a history buff kinda thing??? like had you ever heard abt it?

I think i have heard of two towns in the us, which are like a parody of Denmark?? i mean they eat MIDISTERPØLSE(a sausages) and ÆBLESKIVER(tastes like pancakes looks like teriyaki) FOR BREAKFAST!?!? this is like eating a turkey with a chocolate Easter egg!??

can’t remember the names tho.. we just saw a documentary about them in class a long time ago???

i didn’t know we once owned an american island too?? but i guess that would make sense?? :S 


Finland tried to escape when he first joined the Nordics group because he thought he didn’t belong there. Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland already had some sort of family bond, so he thought that nobody would notice him if he just left.

But during that night, while he was trying to leave, Sweden followed him. Finland looked at him, kind of mad, kind of curious.

“Please don’t tell anybody about this. I don’t belong here. Nobody cares about me”. Finland asked him. He only grabbed a couple of stuff, some clothes and some food.

“I care” Sweden replied which surprised Finland because he had never heard him speak.

The swedish boy grabbed his hand, to try to make him understand that he didn’t want Finland to leave.

“Come on. You have your own family. I’m just a stranger.” Finland wanted to just go. He didn’t want to make a scene about it.

“You are my family” Sweden insisted.

What Finland probably ignored was that Sweden didn’t get along with Denmark and Norway, but he remained there because he didn’t want to be alone. It was Finland the one who actually make him feel better when he joined them. He didn’t feel an outsider.


Finland looked at him and took a deep breathe. He thought Sweden didn’t care at all, because of his silence.

“I don’t want to be alone again”

Finland didn’t know what to say. He wanted to go but when he looked at the sad expression of Sweden, he couldn’t do it. Finland hugged him, because he also felt that way.

“And you’ll never be” Finland promised.

So from that moment they started to become best friends.

Royal Tiara Challenge: Day 23 - Favorite Emerald Tiara

The Danish Emerald Parure

In total: 67 emeralds and 2,650 diamonds composing a parure of a tiara, necklace, earrings, and brooch. The brooch itself can disassemble into three smaller brooches, and can also serve as a pendant for the necklace. The largest 26 emeralds date from 1723, when they were a gift from King Christian VI to Queen Sophie Magdalene for giving birth to the future Frederik V. The rest of the emeralds belonged to Princess Charlotte of Denmark, and the diamonds used also previously belonged to the royal family. The whole thing was put together by C.M. Weisshaupt in time for Queen Caroline Amalie to wear while celebrating her silver wedding anniversary with King Christian VIII in 1840.


♕  My Favourite TiarasPrincess Dagmar’s Floral Tiara

This tiara belonged to Princess Dagmar of Denmark, the daughter of King Frederik VIII. The tiara returned to the main royal family at her death, because, despite the fact that she and her husband had children, she choose to leave the tiara to King Frederik IV, her nephew. King Frederik gave the tiara to his daughter, Margrethe. Queen Margrethe didn’t use it that much and she even loaned it, once, to her mother in law, Renee. In 2008, she loaned this piece to Marie Cavallier, the second wife of her son, Prince Joaquim. Marie wore the tiara, for the first time, on her wedding day and has used it since then. This piece it’s the only tiara from the royal family that Princess Marie has access to.

Denmark belongs to the Boreal Kingdom and can be subdivided into two ecoregions: the Atlantic mixed forests and Baltic mixed forests.Most of Denmark’s temperate forests have been substantially destroyed or fragmented, chiefly for agricultural uses over the last millennia. In all, 12.9% of                                            the land is forested.

Princess Thyra’s Sapphire Tiara

Set in gold and silver and dating from latter half of the 1800s, it includes small diamond designs between five large scrolling diamond elements, each with a sapphire at the center. The sapphires can be swapped out for turquoise stones. The tiara belonged to Princess Thyra of Denmark (1880-1945), who was the daughter of King Frederik VIII and Queen Louise. Thyra never married and had no children, and she left the tiara to her niece, Princess Caroline-Mathilde of Denmark (1912-1995).

Caroline-Mathilde was married to Knud, Hereditary Prince of Denmark, the second son of King Christian X and Queen Alexandrine. (Had history gone differently, Knud could have been the King of Denmark one day. He was next in line to his older brother, Frederik IX, who had only daughters at a time when women couldn’t inherit the throne. But the law was changed in 1953, and a young future Queen Margrethe and her sisters jumped ahead of him in line.) The couple had three children, and this tiara went to their only daughter, Princess Elisabeth. Princess Elisabeth is still in the line of succession for the Danish throne, and she sometimes attends official engagements. When a tiara is required, this is her constant favorite.
