Christian IX of Denmark

Christian was also known as "the father-in-law of Europe" since he managed to get his six children married into other royal houses. He was born 1818, succeeded to the throne on 15 November 1863, upon the death of Frederick VII and died 1906.
His wonderful mutton chops can be seen on this lovely statue outside Stjórnarráðið in Reykjavik, Iceland. Many thanks to our correspondent Peter Adermark for this observation.
