- Queen of Denmark - Dates: 1972-present
Margrethe II (Margrethe Alexandrine Þórhildur Ingrid) (born 16 April 1940) is the queen regnant of Denmark. Only very rarely is her name anglicized as Margaret II.
Princess Margrethe was born at Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen, to Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Ingrid. She was baptised on 14 May 1940 at the Naval Church. As King Christian X was also the King of Iceland at the time, as a courtesy the Princess was given an Icelandic name, Þórhildur (spelled with the Icelandic thorn character, simplified as "th").
