french in denmark

no hetalia characters or pairings are straight bc none of them are human so gender doesnt exist, and unless they identify as agender they are trans because they’re embodiments of landmasses and unless you’re french, the ground you are standing on right now does not have a gender.

It's maybe stupid, but what is the difference between tiaras and crowns?

Definitions like this are hard because there are always going to be pieces that don’t neatly fit into one of the categories but I’ll try my best.  So a crown is a jewelled headpiece that is worn by a monarch, consort, or sometimes heir that forms a complete circle around the head.  A crown typically features a velvet cap, arches, and heraldic symbols.  The British are the only ones that really still use their crowns since most European monarchies have stopped having coronations but some countries still bring them out and display them for special occasions even if they aren’t worn.  By contrast a tiara is a semi-circular jewelled head ornament that can be worn by anyone not just royalty.  For me I often think about what it’s purpose is, crowns are used for coronations and official state ceremonies like the opening of parliament whereas tiaras can be worn whenever the dress code calls for them.  But like I said earlier there are always going to be pieces that fall somewhere between like the British queens’ regal circlets which go all the way around the head and feature heraldic symbols but are used in a more general way like a tiara.  Here are a few crowns…

Crown of King Christian V of Denmark

Crown of Louis XV of France

Crown of King Willem II of the Netherlands

Crown of Carl III Johan of Norway

Crown of Eric XIV of Sweden

Imperial State Crown of King George VI of the United Kingdom

And a tiara is basically everything else featured on this blog.  I’ll queue up some of the British regal circlets so you know what I’m talking about with those.

I’m a very creative and crafty girl from the cold North. I’ve been doing various creative stuff all my life and i think my family might be growing tired of receiving all my crafty things, so i would love to share my interest for craftsy stuff with another creative soul. 3 quick facts about me: 1) i’ve been dancing and doing stage performances for as long as i can remember. 2) i will begin studying psykology in Aarhus University this summer. 3) my top 3 musical artists are: James Blake, Bon Iver and Mumford and sons, but my broad interest in music takes me on adventures in ALL sorts of genres.

Preferences: I am looking for someone between 20-30 of age, who would like to exchange really creative and pretty letters. Im fluent in english, but i would LOVE to keep my french skills at bay, so having a penpal whos from france or is french speaking would be awesome.

April 7th, 2017 || Yesterday, HRH Princess Marie was awarded the highest French honor at the French Embassy in Copenhagen by French Ambassador to Denmark, Francois Zimeray. Marie was made a Grand Officer of the Order of the Legion of Honour, the second highest rank of the order. She joins the ranks of her mother and father-in-law, Queen Margrethe II and Prince Consort Henrik, who are the Grand Cross of the Order of the Legion of Honour, the highest rank of the Legion. Marie was joined by her husband, parents, brothers, and father-in-law for her big day. 

Marie, like her father-in-law, is a French native and was awarded the order as a foreigner. In 2008, when she married Prince Joachim, Marie renounced her French citizenship in order to become a Princess of Denmark. The Princess said this was a huge honor for her and wanted to share it with her patronages, family, and staff.

Harp, ca. 1770, Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, Oslo.

Now, take a closer look. Cause the harp on display is the very same one as seen in the portrait on the wall. The. Very. Same. Every little detail has been carefully painted in the portrait, to the point where I had trouble distinguishing between closeups of the harp and closeups of the painting on my computer.

The harp belonged to Louis Claude le Normand de Bretteville (1744-1835), a French nobleman relocating to Denmark during The French Revolution. He got multiple children in Denmark and Norway, and through various ways both his portrait and his harp ended up in the National Museum in Oslo. 

Museums often create historical environments showing similar artefacts and attires as seen in paintings. First time I realized they hadn’t just displayed a similar harp, but THE VERY SAME ONE, it totally floored me. It’s quite amazing to realize both the instrument and the portrait survived the revolution and the transfer to Scandinavia, and that they’re still united.

World’s Most Bitter Royal, Denmark’s Prince Henrik, Says He Won’t Be Buried Next to His Wife the Queen
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

Today, a representative for the Danish royal family announced that Queen Margarethe’s husband, 83, has elected not to be buried next to her when his time comes, in a designed-just-for-them sarcophagus at Roskilde Cathedral in Denmark.

The Danish royal has long been salty about the fact that he never got the title of “king” when his wife ascended the throne. Instead, he’s a prince consort (the traditional title for a man in his position), and he says the fact that he has a lesser title is a form of gender discrimination.

“It makes me angry that I am subjected to discrimination,” he said told the French newspaper Le Figaro. “Denmark, which is otherwise known as an avid defender of gender equality, is apparently willing to consider husbands as worth less than their wives.”

You’d think 45 years — the length of Margrethe’s reign thus far — would be enough to, well, get over it.

Apparently not.

“It is no secret that the prince for many years has been unhappy with his role and the title he has been awarded in the Danish monarchy,” the family’s director of communications told B.T., a Danish newspaper. “For the prince, the decision not to be buried beside the queen is the natural consequence of not having been treated equally to his spouse — by not having the title and role he has desired.”
