Astrid Sofia Lovisa Thyra

She is usually remembered as a tragic queen, but her years, though few, were rich in joy and good works.

Queen Elisabeth has long been a target of poisoned arrows, but lately, some authors, such as Mark van den Wijngaert, have taken to attacking even Queen Astrid, who has traditionally been spared. The general point of these attacks seems to be to create the impression that she was somehow "fake". It's very nasty, as ALL who knew Astrid testified that she was only too genuine, all sincerity and spontaneity.
