Prince Valdemar of Denmark (1858 – 1939) member of the Danish Royal Family, the youngest son of Christian IX of Denmark. He married Princess Marie d'Orleans. The wedding was believed to have been politically arranged in France by the Count of Paris (the bride's uncle).

He was offered two European thrones, those of Bulgaria & Norway, but declined them due to international pressures.
