No concern for health of King of Denmark

November 6, 1895

The health of King Christian IX of Denmark has improved, and he is now able to "go out as usual," according to a dispatch from the London Sunday Times.

Although His Majesty is "considerably weakened by his recent attacks," there is no real cause for immediate concern.

But unless his "malady can be kept in check," his condition could become very serious.

King George and Queen Olga of Greece left Denmark with their children on Monday.  The King, who is Christian's second youngest son, is going to Paris, while Queen Olga and the children will travel to Austria to stay with the Duke and Duchess of Cumberland at their "magnificent residence" at Gmunden.  The Duchess is King Christian's youngest daughter, Princess Thyra.

King George plans to rejoin his family at Vienna or Trieste, where they will travel together to Athens.  The Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna (Princess Dagmar of Denmark) left Denmark last Thursday, as she wanted to be present for the memorial service for her late husband, Emperor Alexander III, on November 1, the first anniversary of his death.   She will then travel to Nice to join her second son, Grand Duke George.
