    Christian IX (1818-1906)


    Denmark's King from 1863 to 1906, shortly after Christian IX assumed the throne, his small kingdom was routed by the German states in 1864. In later years, he vainly resisted democracy until forced to yield to parliamentary government in 1901. Christian proved more adept at nuptial politics by marrying off his daughters Alexandra and Marie to the future King of England and Tsar of Russia, respectively.
