Denmark is a constitutional monarchy with an unbroken link of monarchs for more than 1000 years (except for an interregnum of eight years 1332-1340).
The current monarch, Queen Margaret II, has largely ceremonial functions; probably her most significant formal power lies in her right to appoint the statsminister (prime minister) and cabinet ministers, who are responsible for administration of the government.
Denmark emerged from two referendums (June 2, 1992, and May 18, 1993) with four important exemptions (or "opt-outs") to the Maastricht Treaty on the European Union: common defense, common currency, EU citizenship, and certain aspects of legal cooperation, including law enforcement.

Margaret I Queen of Denmark and Norway, Regent of Sweden (1353 – October 28, 1412) was born in Vordingborg Castle, the daughter of Valdemar IV of Denmark and Helvig of Sonderjylland.
It had been understood that Margaret should, at the first convenient opportunity, provide the three kingdoms with a king who was to be a kinsman of all the three old dynasties, and in 1389 she proclaimed her great-nephew, Eric of Pomerania (grandson of Henry of Mecklenburg), king of Norway.
Margaret revolted at the clauses which insisted that each country should retain exclusive possession of its own laws and customs and be administered by its own dignitaries, as tending in her opinion to prevent the complete amalgamation of Scandinavia.
