European Aristocracy
Frederik VI Oldenburg was a member of the aristocracy in Europe.


Frederick VI (Danish and Norwegian: Frederik; 28 January 1768 – 3 December 1839) was King of Denmark from 13 March 1808 to 3 December 1839 and King of Norway from 13 March 1808 to 7 February 1814. From 1784 until his accession, he served as regent during his father's mental illness and was referred to as the "Crown Prince Regent" (kronprinsregent). For his motto he chose God and the just cause (Danish: Gud og den retfærdige sag) and since the time of his reign, succeeding Danish monarchs have also chosen mottos in the Danish language rather than the formerly customary Latin.

The Ancestry source claims a mistress who is not listed in Wikipedia. This daughter, Ann Margrethe Dorothea was born in 1829. Does anyone know of a source for this mistress and child?

The parents' "confirmed with DNA" indicators were removed because the DNA confirmation is undocumented.

Please see this G2G article on DNA confirmation for more information and guidance on proper documentation.

Thank you.
