Margrethe II, The beloved Queen of Denmark, is another Royal
we don't know much about.
She and Queen Elizabeth are good friends.
 Margrethe admires the Queens' dedication to England and seems
 Queen Elizabeth was a good role model for her to follow
in  Denmark .

Margrethe is Queen now for 40 years and celebrated her Ruby Jubilee
She is renown for her sense of style and her paintings under the name of
Ingahild Grathmer .
 She is also a chain

A daughter of King Frederik 1X  and Ingrid of Sweden,
the Queen married a  French diplomat Count Henri de Laborde de Monpezat .
They had two boys
Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim.

She was born in 1940, one week after Germany invaded Denmark.
(These must have been fun times.)

She speaks 5 languages Danish, French, English, Swedish and German.

 With respect to tolerance she said:
"There are some things for which one should display no tolerance.
And when we are tolerant, we must know whether it is because of
convenience or conviction."
