 Christian IX of Denmark - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nationalism pursuing towards independence in the German-speaking parts of Schleswig-Holstein caused that no solution to keep the Duchies together with Denmark was satisfactory to them and to certain elements in Germany.
The duchies were inherited after the salic law among descendants of Helwig of Schauenburg, senior of which after Frederick VII was Frederick, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg (1829-1880) (the future father-in-law of Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany), who in 1863 proclaimed himself as Frederick VIII of Schleswig-Holstein.
This Friedrich von Augustenburg had become the symbol of the nationalist German independence-movement in Schleswig-Holstein, after his father in exchange for money had renounced his claims as first in line to inherit the twin-duchies of Schleswig and Holstein, following the London protocol of May 8, 1852, which concluded the First war of Schleswig.

 General History
In the year 1111 the Duke of Saxony and future king and emperor of the Holy Roman Empire created the Earldom of Holstein and named Adolf von Schauenburg as the first Earl of Holstein.
This strong German cultural and economic influence was demonstrated when the Schauenburg line died out and the Holstein nobility elected to remain tied to Schleswig.
Since Schleswig was a part of Denmark by hereditary right, the Holstein nobility gave the title to King Christian I in 1460, which he saw enfeoffed to him and raised to the status of a duchy and member of the Holy Roman Empire by the emperor in Rothenburg ob der Taube in 1474 (Degn 84).
