crown of Norway by Frederick's second
son Charles, now King Haakon VII.
King Frederick's hobby was to bring
about n Scnntllnavltin union of Sweden,
Norway and Denmnlk for their mutual
protection. This wus one of his pet
schemes away back In the '60s, but it
was obstructed by the reluctance of
Norway to associate herself with Swe
den in the mutter as long us she was
subject to the rule of King Oscnr.
King Frederick up to the time of his
accession had never been active In poll
tics, but followed public movements very
closely. He attended all Important de
bates In both houses of the Itlgsdng.
He was Chancellor of the I'nlverslty
w hen he was Crown Prince, and head of
the Free Masons In Denmark.
The King, like the Queen, was of ft
seilous turn of mind, and sincerely re
ligious. They bad visited foreign courts,
but had been essentially stuy nt homes.
Physically Frederick was a tine speci
men of manhood, and until recently had
borne the weight of Ills years lightly.
