After his son was deposed in 1522, John's blood returned to the Danish and Norwegian thrones in the person of Christian III of Denmark, the grandson of his daughter, Electress Elisabeth.

Although these missionaries were full-blooded Danes and parents were born and raised in Denmark, they often did not speak the Danish language and had to learn it as a second language in their first months in Denmark.
The greatest missionary work in the mid-1800s was done by local missionaries who were called in Denmark to work in their neighborhoods or travel to other areas of Denmark and Scandinavia to do missionary work among their own countrymen.
This was also the period of greatest growth in Denmark, much surpassing in number of baptisms the later period when hundreds of foreign missionaries worked in Denmark.

On Friday (June 2, 2006), the Danish Parliament (Folketinget) had its last session before the Summer break, and on a very long agenda, the very last issue (#57) was the second and last reading of Morten Helveg’s Proposal for Parliamentary Resolution on Open Standards (B103).
Anne Østergaard’s Denmark to follow in the foot steps of Massachuchets on open standards is flawed, in my opinion.
Microsoft argued that they wanted to dicuss with the committee how to ensure as much freedom of choice to citizens and businesses in their communication with government, i.e., the old “one standard is good, but two are better” song.

Denmark, as he was called, was one of 390 slaves whom Captain Vesey brought from St. Thomas to Haiti, then a French colony called Saint-Domingue.
Since Denmark was not suited to heavy labor, the captain made him his personal servant, and during the next two years Denmark saw many of the horrors of the slave trade as he sailed with the captain on his voyages between Africa and the West Indies.
As a personal slave, Denmark Vesey lived a comparatively comfortable life — far better than slaves working on plantations — and he had a certain amount of freedom to come and go as he pleased.
