 Schleswig-Holstein Question - LoveToKnow 1911
In 1713 the regent broke the stipulated neutrality of the duchy in favour of Sweden and Frederick IV.
The negotiations broke down, however, on the refusal of Denmark to yield the principle of the indissoluble union with the Danish crown; on the 23rd of February the truce was at an end, and on the 3rd of April the war was renewed.
Denmark replied with a refusal to recognize the right of any foreign power to interfere in her relations with Schleswig; to which Austria, anxious to conciliate the smaller German princes, responded with a vigorous protest against Danish infringements of the compact of 1852.

 Christopher of Bavaria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Christopher of Bavaria, known by his Danish and Norwegian title as Christoffer (III) af/av Bayern and by his Swedish title as Kristofer av Bayern (26 February 1418-5 January/6 January 1448) was union king of Denmark (1440-1448) and Norway (1442-1448), and of Sweden (1441-1448).
As the nephew of Eric of Pomerania, Christopher being rather unfamiliar to Scandinavian conditions was chosen by the Danish nobility as the successor to his uncle, first as regent from 1439, and then as king from 1440.
In 1441 Christopher crushed a great peasant rebellion in Northern Jutland (one of the central domestic events of his short rule) and as a whole his reign meant a growing suppression of the peasantry especially in Eastern Denmark.

 Barrymore
Christopher Plummer, after all, may have been born and raised in Canada, but he trained at the Royal Shakespeare Company, and so he is a stickler for the King's English, a bit of a contemporary Henry Higgins.
