  The Danish Monarchy - History - Frederik VIII
Crown Prince Frederik had had a military education, but throughout life he had taken a keen interest in politics and was a declared supporter of the parliamentary system, which his father remained opposed to for so long.
After the death of his father in 1906, Frederik VIII succeeded to the throne at the age of 63, and subsequently developed cooperation based on confidence with the changing Venstre (Liberal) Governments.
In his relations with people, Frederik VIII like his father was kind and unobtrusive, and he soon became popular both with politicians and with the population at large.
