until 1340
The Kingdom of Denmark emerged in the 10th century, the product of the merger of the historical regions of Jylland ("Jutland", including Schleswig/Slesvig, Fyn and the western isles), Sjælland and Skåne (Scania, with Bornholm). Denmark, Christian since the 10th century, pursued a policy of expansion; North Frisia, Fehmarn came under Danish rule.
In 1232 the Duchy of Schleswig was created. In 1326 the Duchies of Schleswig and Holstein entered a dynastic union hostile to Denmark; in effect, Schleswig, though a Danish fief, had been separated from the Kingdom of Denmark.

1340-1520
In 1340, Denmark ceded Scania as a pawn to Sweden's King Magnus; in 1346, Denmark ceded Estonia as a pawn to the Livonian Order. The country , after extended civil war, was in desparate need of cash. King Valdemar IV. Atterdag regained Scania by paying back the Swedish king. In disputes with the Hanseatic League, Valdemar Atterdag succeeded in establishing the Sound Levy, which was to remain Denmark's most important source of income until it's abolition in 1863. At Valdemar Atterdag's death in 1375, Denmark had solid finances and a stable constitution.
In Denmark, political power was shared by the king, the king's council (Rigsrad) and the diet (Rigsdag), the nobility being the most important group represented in Rigsdag and Rigsrad. These institutions represented Denmark proper - Scania, Sjælland, Jylland.
With Valdemar's successor, Olaf I., Denmark and Norway were united in Dynastic Union, a union which was, under Queen Margarethe, joined by Sweden in 1397. While all 3 kingdoms were ruled by one king, they would continue to have separate administrations, constitutions and laws. The union is called Union of Kalmar after the castle where the contract establishing it was signed.
The union kings felt to be kings of Denmark first; they resided in Copenhagen, Denmark's capital. Sweden's nobility resisted from the 1430es onward, but Norway for the most part stayed loyal.
The island of Gotland, before 1398, had been largely autonomous if not independent. However, it's administation had been shattered by a Danish raid under Valdemar Atterdag in 1361, and by 1397 it had deteriorated into a pirate's nest. In 1398 the Teutonic Order invaded the island to end piracy. Now the estates of Denmark and Sweden demanded the island's "return" to Denmark, and in 1409 the order handed over the island to Union King Erik of Pomerania in return for it's expenses for the expedition.
Erik of Pommerania, late in his rule, came into conflict with Denmark's and Sweden's nobility, and in 1437 withdrew to Gotland, still a region of its own, where he resided until 1449, claiming the title of King. In the meantime, the estates of Denmark (Rigsdag) had elected a new king, Christoph of Bavaria, who took up residence in Copenhagen. While two kings claimed the crown of Denmark, Sweden's Riksdag elected one of their own, Karl Knutsson, king; he was also elected by the Norwegians.
In 1449, new Danish King Christian I. succeeded in regaining Gotland and in 1457 Norway. Norway from now on was a hereditary kingdom, and, like Gotland and Norway's outposts in the Atlantic, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroes, Shetlands and Orkneys, became Danish outer possessions. In 1468, the Orkneys and Shetlands were ceded to Scotland as dowry.
The Danish kings, again and again, attempted to reestablish their authority over Sweden, and succeeded at times, only to see the Swedes rebel again. Denmark, throughout the 14th century, was the dominant political power in Scandinavia.

Reformation, 1520-1550
The Political Situation in Denmark in the 1520es . In 1523, Duke Frederick of Holstein was recognized as King of Denmark by the nobility of Jylland (Jutland). He quickly established control over Fyn, Sjælland and Skåme (Scania), the cities of København (Copenhagen) and MalmÖ, the last strongholds loyal to Christian II. in Denmark proper, surrendered in January 1524. Frederick was strongly supported by Denmarks nobility and clergy, who had been furious about Christian's pro-peasant legislation; the nobles of Jylland had burnt Christian II.'s laws at the Landsting of Viborg. There were cases of peasants unrest, such as the Bondestormen (peasants' unrest) in Jylland in 1527.
On the other hand, Christian II. enjoyed strong support among the peasants. In 1525, Søren Norby, the captain of Gotland and the last man still loyal to Christian, landed in Skåne and quickly assembled an army of peasants around him, taking control of Skåne except the walled cities of Malmö and Hälsingborg. However, when King Frederik vrought in a professional army, Norby's peasants wrre quickly defeated.
Christian II. in 1523 had left Denmark for the continent, where he tried to get political and financial support to retake his kingdom(s). He upheld his claim; even as these attempts lead to no tangible result, King Frederick and his administration had to feel uneasy.
King Christian, until his deposition, had been Union King - of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. While the Norwegian Council had recognized Frederick as their king, the Swedes had elected their own and reestablished their independence. Border problems arose. More important, however, were relations with the Hanseatic cities - Frederick had financed his campaign of 1523 with a loan from Lübeck; in order to oust Søren Norby from Gotland in 1525, he again needed Lübeck's help. In return, he had to grant the island of Bornholm as a pawn for 50 years to the leading Hanseatic city.
Frederick's legislation, however, was in contrast to the interests of the Hanseatic city.
The Emergence of Lutheranism in Denmark . The Danish church administration, in the early 1520es, saw the archbishopric contested between candidates the cathedral chapter would like to see on the seat, royal candidates and papal candidates; the royal candidate, Jørgen Skodborg (1520) was duly elected, but failed to obtain papal affirmation (as Skodborg was not yet ordained a priest) and soon saw royal support withdrawn and himself deposed, because as acting archbishop he refused to answer the financial demands King Christian made on the Danish church. Skodborg's successor Didrik Slagheck was executed after a few months. The next archbishop, Johann Wese, fled with King Christian to Gemany in 1523. The next archbishop, Åge Sparre, again failed to obtain papal affirmation - which finally was obtained by Jørgen Skodborg in 1525, who now was supported by King Frederik and the other Danish bishops.
Due to this chain of events, the Danish bishops had lost authority. In 1520 King Christian II. invited the first Lutheran, Martin Reinhard, to preach in Denmark; he soon left, because he could not make himself understood. In 1523, several German cities on the coast of the Baltic Sea had introduced the Lutheran reformation. In 1524, King Christian II. (out of the country) had converted to Lutheranism; the Danish diet of 1524 then had established a formal alliance between King Frederick and the Danish nobility against Lutheranism.
The reformation held inroads in the Duchies of Slesvig (Schleswig) and Holstein in 1525, in 1526 in Jylland, where Hans Tausen preached at Viborg; Tausen had studied unter Luther in Wittenberg. Tausen was opposed by many in the Danish church hierarchy; in Oktober 1526 he was appointed royal chaplain. King Frederick did not openly speak out in favour of Lutheranism, but protected Tausen. The Lutheran priests were warned not to spread the new teaching; at the same time breach of celibacy and flight from monasteries were tolerated. The diets since 1526 were dominated by the religious question, but no decision was made.
In the late 1520es King Frederick I. had entered into close ties with Count Philipp of Hessen, which in 1531 had resulted in Denmark becoming a member of the Schmalkaldic League; in foreign policy, Denmark thus had sided with the Lutheran princes. An invasion by King Christian II. in Norway was of only temporary success.
From 1533 to 1536 . King Frederick I. died in 1533. Lübeck's burgomaster Jürgen Wullenwever schemed to place Count Christoph of Oldenburg on the Danish throne; Christoph's army in 1534 invaded Holstein, an event which brought Count Christian off Holstein into the game. Soon, the diets of Sjælland and Skåne elected Christoph, those of Jylland and Fyn Christian King of Denmark. While campaigns and rebellions went on in Denmark, the decision fell in Lübeck, where burgomaster Wullenwever was toppled; Christoph lost his main support. Denmark (Christian) and Lübeck concluded peace, Christoph's last stronghold, København surrendered. (July 1536); Christian was undisputed King of Denmark.
Implementation of the Reformation . King Christian in 1537 charged a commission including Hans Tausen with composing a Church Ordinnance for Denmark, which after having been approved by Johannes Bugenhagen, was proclaimed and printed in Dec. 1537. The church was to be lead by superintendents - Hans Tausen became superintendent of Ribe, his district identical with the previous diocesis. The Lutheran church was declared State Church and still is.
After two civil wars in a little over a decade, the Danish crown was in desperate need of revenue, which was provided by the large scale confiscation of church property, for which the Lutheran reformation provided welcome legitimation. In the 1550es, the Danish crown experienced a significant budget surplus. Some of the church revenue was used to support the reestablished University of København (Copenhagen, 1537). A Danish bible translation was published in 1550.

1550-1660
The Reformation introduced in 1536 brought a major political change. The state established its influence over the church, and first steps were taken in cutting down on old territorial privileges and institutions. Norway's Rigsrad was dissolved, Danish introduced as the language of administration in Norway.
The Danish Rigsrad, however, continued to function and was an influential political body, which jointly with the King ruled the country. It's members were powerful noblemen, owning large estates, and keen on preserving their privileges.
In 1618 the 30 Years War had begun, and King Christian IV of Denmark entered the scene in 1625, as the leader of the protestant side. Soon, however, he was defeated by Wallenstein, whose forces even occupied Jutland (1627). In 1629, Denmark had to sign a humiliating peace. In 1630 Sweden entered that war and was successful; in 1643 the Swedes turned on Denmark, which, after being defeated, had to cede Oesel, Gotland, Halland, Jämtland, Härjedalen. In 1655 another war broke out, and in 1658 Denmark had to cede Bornholm, Blekinge, Scania, Bohuslän, Stift Drontheim.
The wars of the 17th century had brought disaster over Denmark-Norway; in 1655-58 the country was close to collapse, having lost two central, key provinces : Scania, with Lund, the seat of Denmark's archbishopric, and Stift Drontheim, with Drontheim (Trondhjem), Norway's ancient capital and seat of the country's archbishopric. Also, a share in the crucial Sound Levy had been ceded to archenemy Sweden.
Economically, Denmark-Norway was a dominantly agrarian society. The city of Copenhagen, by far the biggest within the realm, had about 30.000 inhabitants in 1650. Denmark proper produced mainly corn and cattle, the surplus of which was sold in the Netherlands. Norway exported dried or salted fish and some iron, as well as wood. The most important source of revenue to the Danish state, however, was the Sound Levy, charged from every ship passing from the North Sea into the Baltic Sea and vice versa.
In 1618, the Danish East India Company acquired it's first colony, Frederiksnagar in Bengal, to which in 1620 Tranquebar, in southeast India, was added.

1660-1755
The Danish corporate constitution had limited the king's powers, because the estates, always keen to protect their privileges, were hesitating when it came to agree to new taxes. King Frederik III. blamed the chain of defeats on the old constitution which had proven outdated. Having won the confidence of the estates (the Rigsrad) he concluded an alliance with the Dutch Republic. In the following war against Sweden, the Dutch fleet proved decisive. Sweden gave in and ceded Bornholm, the Stift Drontheim and the Sound levies back to Denmark (1660). King Frederik thus had proven, that the king's rule undisputed by privilege holders and conflicting assemblies was more effective, was able to turn things around. In 1665, the Rigsrad enacted the Act of Royalty, empowering the king to raise additional taxes without necessity for the Rigsrad's approval. In effect this ment the Rigsrad gave up its main tool of poltical influence. Until 1665, the kingdom of Denmark proper included only Jutland, the Danish isles (foremost Fyn and Sjælland) and (until 1658) Scania, Blekinge, Halland. The other areas - the kingdom of Norway, the former Norwegian dependencies (Iceland, Greenland, the Faroes, Gotland, Ösel) were separate entities. Under absolute rule, the administration was centralised. The realm's resources were concentrated in the capital, were invested in the nation's defense and in construction projects (there was always another palace to build). For the outlying areas, absolute reign resulted in a loss of autonomy, as the decisions were made in Kopenhagen. During absolutism, few Danish kings visited Norway, some did not even show up for the ritual crowning procedure. Remote island possessions were reduced to suppliers of certain raw materials and as controlled markets (a policy which was started already before absolutism was introduced). Only one government-licensed, Denmark-based company was allowed to trade with Iceland. For the areas concerned, this resulted in dictated prices and economic stagnation. Following the French model, a mercantilist policy was pursued, monopolies handed out to raise revenue.
Absolutism meant the disempowerment of the wealthy noble landowners, of the Rigsrad. The absolutist kings, in their administration, therefore avoided to call Danish noblemen into political office, called non-nobles, often foreigners instead (mostly Germans, who often were ennobled by the Danish Kings). This new nobilty was a Service Nobility, dependent on the king who appointed them, free from a desire to protect inherited privileges and estates, free to pursue a policy aiming at the improvement of state and society. Absolutism also meant that the country was without representation, for the king claimed to have been given his authority from god, and the Rigsdag ceased to meet.
In regard to religious policy, in edicts of toleration were published, for Catholics in 1671, for Jews in 1684 and for Calvinists in 1685. Denmark introduced the Gregorian calendar in 1700.
In Denmark-Norway, the period of Absolutism was not interrupted by an age of liberty. The kings ruled without asking the rigsdag for approval. They appointed those who served in the administration. When the king was to appoint somebody to fill a position in the administration, he usually disregarded members of the old nobility, and appointed either ethnic Germans or recently ennobled persons. Absolute rule in Denmark-Norway was less harsh than in France under Louis XIV. and his successors. Danish kings enjoyed their peoples respect and loyalty. In Denmark the old nobility was powerless, in Norway a nobility worthy to mention did not exist. The kings understood their role as guardians and benefactors of their realm. Frederik IV. (1699-1730) was modest and industrious; he succeeded in reducing the national debt (from the disastrous Great Nordic War) by half. His successor Christian VI. (1730-46) also promoted Pietism. The Danish kings pursued a policy promoting mercantilism, often by the means of granting monopolies. Denmark acquired colonies in the Caribbean, St. Thomas in 1666, St. Croix in 1733, adding to their existing colonies of Tranquebar (since 1620) and Frederiksnagar (since 1616) in India and their possession on the Gold Coast. The Caribbean island colonies were supposed to make Denmark independent from sugar imports. Regular contacts with Greenland were reopened in 1750.

Enlightenment, 1755-1790
Scholarly Societies . In 1740 the Kiøbenhavske Selskab af Laerdoms og Videnskabers Elskere (Copenhagen Society of Lovers of Learning and Science) was established, in 1745 followed by the Kongelige Danske Selskab for Fædrelandets Historie (Royal Danish Society for National History), in 1754 by Det Kongelige Danske Skildre-, Billedhugger- og Bygnings-Academie i Kiøbenhavn (Royal Danish Painting, Sculpture and Architecture Academy in Copenhagen), in 1769 by the Kongelige Danske Landhuusholdnings-Selskab (Royal Danish Agricultural Society) with seat in Fredriksberg, in 1771 by the Kirurgiske Privatselskab (Private Society of Surgeons) with seat in Copenhagen. and by the Københavnske Medicinske Selskab (Copenhagen Medical Society), in 1774 by the Societas Exercitatoria Medica (Medical Training Society of Copenhagen), in 1785 by the Societas Disputatoria Medica Haunienis (Medical Debating Society of Copenhagen)
Enlightened Absolutism . In 1755, A.G. Moltke, in the name of King Frederik V., called upon the Danes to make suggestions toward the improvement of the national economy.
From 1770 to 1772 J.F. Struensee, physician of mentally ill King Christian VII, as privy counselor, was in control of government. He decreed numerous reforms, including the abolition the the Rigsrådet, of torture, of censorship, of corvee labour, he banned slave trade in the Danish colonies. Many of his reforms intended to easen the burden on peasants, and to cut into privileges and revenues of nobles. Following a coup, Struensee was arrested, tried and executed, in a case of judicial murder.
Anti-Reaction . The Struensee episode had contributed to the rise of national Danish sentiment against an administration dominated by German nationals (Struensee had been German). In 1776 the Law of Indigenous Rights was introduced, according to which only Danes could hold office in Denmark (to prevent another Struensee come to power).

1790-1815
Denmark had tried to stay neutral in the conflict between France and Great Britain. Napoleon tried to force all continental European states to join the blockade against British goods. Denmark (and Sweden) chose not to enforce the blockade, because both smuggling proved to be very profitable. For instance, Britain had imposed high taxes on tea which was oh so popular on the island. The Danish and Swedish East India Companies imported more tea than the (English) East India Company itself - and smuggled 90 % of it into Britain, where it still could be sold at a huge profit. Shortly afterwards, the East India Company was declared bankrupt. When Britain lowered its tariffs on tea, the Danish and Swedish East India Companies followed suit (into bankrupcy). However, in 1801 and again in 1807 the British navy attacked Copenhagen. As a consequence of the attack of 1807, Denmark lost its entire fleet, all its colonies and the island of Heligoland. The rough treatment drove Denmark into Napoleon's arms, and it remained a loyal ally to the very end. The British control of the seas disrupted the Danish connections with Norway.

1815-1848
In 1814, when the Napoleonic Era ended, Denmark ended up on the losing side, for it had stayed loyal to France for too long. It had to cede Norway to Sweden, but kept the old Norwegian sidelands of the Faroes, Iceland and Greenland. On the other hand, it gained the Duchy of Lauenburg.
The Kings continued to rule absolute. However, as elsewhere in Europe, the demand for a constitution and a representative assembly rose in various parts of the realm. Most delicate was the problem of Schleswig-Holstein. Historically, the Duchy of Schleswig was part of the Kingdom of Denmark, while the Duchy of Holstein was part of Germany (the Holy Roman Empire until 1806, the German Confederation since 1815). However, the two duchies had been in a dynastic union for centuries, and the duchies' estates centuries ago had merged under the motto up ewig ungedeelt (for ever undivided). A large part of Schleswig's population, especially in the southern and central part of the duchy, felt German rather than Danish. In 1831, King Frederik VI. introduced Consultative Assemblies in Holstein, Schleswig, Jutland and for the Islands, the voting right being tied to property. Local autonomy (self-administration) was introduced in 1837/40. A national cadastre was introduced in 1844.
Denmark still was a predominantly agricultural country. In 1813 the country had declared a State Bankrupcy, as a consequence of which the prices had risen considerably. Agriculture was in a crisis which lasted until late into the 1820es, after which prosperity returned. Denmark sold its colonies in India (Frederiksnagar and Tranquebar) in 1845.

1848-1864
In 1848, a National Constitutional Assembly was formed, which in 1849 passed the June Constitution. A bicameral parliament, consisting of Landsting and Folketing was established, with Universal Manhood Suffrage for the Folketing. The absolute monarchy was transformed into a Constitutional Monarchy, policy-making lying with the Cabinet now, headed by the Prime Minister.
The German population of Schleswig and Holstein was unhappy with separate consultative assemblies being established for Schleswig respectively Holstein in 1831. However, Danish nationalism also was on the rise; Orla Lehmann in 1842 demanded the right to speak Danish in the Schleswig assembly, as well as the full incorporation of Schleswig into the kingdom (it still had a separate administration, as well as separate laws). When the National Constitutional Assembly was elected in 1848, the German Schleswigers sent their representatives to Germany's parliament in Frankfurt instead, where Friedrich Dahlmann, professor of history from Göttingen (delegate for Holstein) was elected president of the parliament. A revolt broke out in the duchies (1848-1851), military assistance from Germany did not materialize, and the conflict was ended with the London Protocoll guaranteeing the status quo, i.e. Schleswig not being incorporated in Denmark. However, the Danification Policy continued as the Language Edict introduced Danish as the language of church and education in central Schleswig in 1851. However, in 1863 the November Constitution was passed, unifying Denmark and Schleswig. It was a clear violation of the London Protocoll; the Schleswig-Holsteiners again rose in rebellion, this time assisted by the Austrian and Prussian armies. The Danish forces were defeated at Dybbøl (Düppel); Denmark ceded Schleswig, Holstein and Lauenburg. The peace treaty foresaw a referendum for Northern Schleswig, with a Danish population majority.
Denmark sold it's colonies in Africa on the Gold Coast in 1850, only keeping the Danish West Indies. The Sound Toll was abolished in 1857. Railway construction began in the 1850es; gasworks provided street lighting in larger cities.

1864-1914
From ca. 1870, Denmarks politics were dominated by two groups, Højre (conservatives), Centrum and Venstre (the leftist liberals, organized since before 1848). Venstre usually held the majority in the Folketing, while the ministers, appointed by the king, were conservative. As Venstre opposed the Højre governments, lead by prime minister J.B.S. Estrup, the governments between 1885 and 1894 is called the Period of Provisional Laws. 1895-1901 a Højre government was tolerated by Venstre, until in 1901 the Venstrereformpartiet (est. 1895 by Venstre politicians opposed to reconciliation with Højre) formed a government.
The Danish Labour Movement had been founded in 1871, the Social Democratic Party in 1876, the first Social Democrats elected into Folketing in 1884. Parliamentary responsibility was introduced in 1901. In 1906, Radical Venstre split off Venstrereformpartiet, soon to become a leading force in Danish politics.

1914-1918
In 1915, Højre lost, and a splinter group formed the Conservative Party.
During World War I, Denmark stayed neutral. Economically the country depended on Britain, its main partner in ex- and import. For matters of national security, Germany was more important. In April 1917, the Danish West Indies were sold to the United States, which feared them might pose a threat to the Panama Canal if Germany got hold of them. The German U-Boat Warfare resulted in restrictions on Danish maritime trade - much of the North Sea was fighting arena (Battle of Jutland 1916); only narrow channels reserved for the merchant marine of neutral nations.
In 1915, Universal Womanhood Suffrage was introduced.

1918-1920
When World War I was over, the plebiscite in Northern Schleswig finally was held in early 1920; the northern part of it, around Tønder, Haderslev, Åbenra and Sønderborg, opted for Denmark. The Danish minority in the area remaining with Germany got a statute protecting its rights in the constitution of Schleswig-Holstein.

1920-1939
Post-war Denmark, with a Liberal government, experienced an economic crisis, unemployment soaring in 1922-23 and 1925-28. In 1924, the first Social Democratic cabinet, lead by Th. Stauning, took over, unsuccessful in trying to solve the economic crisis by State Intervention. His successor, Liberal Th. Madsen-Mygdal pursued an economic policy of Austerity.
The crisis was not that severe as in Germany or other countries of central and eastern central Europe, for Denmark had not participated in WW I, and it was industrialized to a lesser extent. During the 1920es, despite the ongoing crisis, Denmark's industry and agriculture were modernized. Ford set up a plant in Denmark.
From 1929 onward, a coalition of Social Democrats and Social Liberals (Venstrereformpartiet) governed, which during the aggravating crisis (unemployment reached a staggering 40% in 1932) agreed on a policy of state intervention and on social reforms. Social democratic policy moved away from socialist ideology, and, as Stauning's 1934 programme Denmark for the People expresses, toward serving the interests of the people.
Denmark, like it's Scandinavian neighbours, pursued a policy of neutrality, attempting to stay out of the coming conflict.

1939-1945
On March 31st 1939, Germany and Denmark signed a Non-Aggression Pact. On December 7th 1939 the Scandinavian Nations agreed to take a neutral stand in the ongoing Winter War in Finland.
On April 9th 1940, without declaration of war, German foirces occupied Denmark proper, en route to Norway. The Danes did not offer any resistance. The British occupied the Faroes and Iceland to prevent the Germans establishing outposts there; Greenland later was occupied by US forces. The British also attempted to seize Denmark's merchant navy. On April 10th 1940, Danish PM Thorwald Stauning formed a National Samling government (all major parties included). On April 16th 1940, the Faroe Islands, a Danish possession in the North Atlantic, were occupied by British troops. On July 4th 1940, in the Folketing (Dan. Parliament), Stauning emphasized the necessity to economically cooperate with the 'neighbour nation'. On July 8th the cabinet was reshuffled; Erik Scavenius became foreign minister.
On Jan. 18th 1941 the Lex Ørum was passed. making actions against foreign (occupation) force punishable. On June 26th 1941 Denmark severed her diplomatic ties with the USSR. On July 7th, a Free Corps Denmark was established, a volunteer force which was to participate in the German war on the USSR. On August 22nd 1941 the Anti-Communist Law was passed. On November 25th 1941, Denmark joined the Anti-Comintern Pact, with the understanding that Denmark maintained her neutrality.
PM Stauning died May 3rd 1942. In May, Christian Möller, former minister of trade, fled to Britain, where he became a leading figure of the Danish exile. In October/November 1942 the Telegram Crisis unfolded. On Nov. 4th 1942, Scavenius was appointed new pm. In August 1943, Denmark experienced strikes and unrest. On August 29th, martial law was proclaimed. On September 16th 1943, the Danish Liberty Council was established, as the body representing the Danish resistance. On Oct. 2nd 1943 the Danish Jewish community was evacuated, to neutral Sweden (2. 10. 1943); ca. 500 out of ca. 7.500 ended up in Theresienstadt. In November, the Liberty Council published "When Denmark is free again". On Jan. 4th 1944, Danish resistance activist and poet Kaj Munk killed by the GeStaPo. On September 19th 1944, the Germans arrested c. 2000 Danish policemen. During the occupation, Germany exploited Denmark by having Denmark's National Bank paying for the costs of the occupation. In other aspects, the occupation was less harsh than in the countries of the east, for the Nazi racial theory regarded the Danes as of "Aryan" stock.
Denmark's king and politicians had remained in Denmark during the occupation; there was no Danish government-in-exile. Denmark's government collaborated with the Germans until 1943; then the Germans took over the administration of Denmark. However, resistance organizations such as Holger Dansker sprang up, and mainly targetted individual collaborators. Denmark remained occupied until the German forces in Denmark surrendered on May 5th 1945; Bornholm was to be occupied by Soviet forces on May 8th 1945.

1945-1949
Foreign Policy : The allies treated Denmark as a victim of German expansion rather than as a German ally, evaluating the effort of Danish resistance over the administration's collaboration. Yet, Iceland, which had declared independence, was lost; the Faroes, during the war under British occupation, were granted political autonomy; US military presence on Greenland a political fact. The Russians ended their occupation of Bornholm on April 5th 1946; the British ended their occupation of the Faroes.
Discussions between the governments of Norway, Sweden and Denmark on a common defense policy failed because Norway wanted an alliance with Britain; Sweden insisted on neutrality. In 1949 Denmark joined both NATO and the Council of Europe; Denmark was a founding member of the UN. Inter-Scandinavian negotiations were to result in the foundation of the Nordic Council in 1952.
The Danish government was concerned about the resettlement of German refugees in Schleswig-Holstein, were it could affect the Danish minority concentrated in and near Flensburg. Schleswig-Holstein granted a special status to the Danish minority, thus addressing Danish concerns.
The Economy : In 1940 Denmark had been occupied without resistance; by the time of Germany's surrender, core Denmark except for Bornholm were still held by German forces. Thus the country experienced comparatively litle damage during the war. By the end of the war, c. 200,000 German refugees were on Danish soil; they proved a heavy burden on the Danish state and were mostly repatriated in 1947-1948. Seamines laid during the war by the Germans continued to pose a problem for shipping.
Denmark's food production quickly returned to normal; the country's butter production was exported (for hard currency), a few food articles in Denmark remained rationed. A number of import items were hard to find. In 1948-1949, Denmark benefitted from the Marshall Plan.
Domestic Policy : With the termination of the German occupation, ordinary collaborators were publicly exposed and humiliated, war profiteers fined. King Christian X. (he had stayed in Denmark during the occupation) died in 1947, age 77; he was succeeded by Frederik IX.

1949-1969
Denmark's economy profited from the Marshall Plan (1948ff). The country in 1949 became founding member of NATO. In 1960, Denmark together with the United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, Sweden and Finland founded EFTA, a free trade organisation without a political programme.
In 1953 the constitution was changed, the Landsting abolished, a unicameral system introduced. A National Pension Scheme was passed in 1956, a Sickness Compensation Scheme in 1960, Disablement Insurance introduced in 1965, unemployment benefits raised in 1970. Denmark became a Welfare State.
In the 1950es and 1960es, Denmark's economy boomed, factories like LEGO gaining a reputation worldwide, as did Danish dairy products and furniture.
When the UN Security Council called the member nations to support invaded South Korea, Denmark dispatched hospital ship Jutlandia, which served in Korean waters.
Denmark liberalized its censorship regulations; pornographic magazines (in the early 1960es still prohibited in the nations of central Europe) became a much-smuggled article.

1969-1990
In 1979 Greenland was granted political autonomy. When the Soviet Union showed signs of breaking up, the Danish government was the first to recognize the independence of Lithuania (in 1991).
In 1973 Denmark left EFTA and joined the EEC (now EU). The Danish economy was hit by the Oil Crisis. Unlike other European nations, Denmark decided not to use nuclear energy; instead they promoted small wind energy generators. Denmark's governments was later to ask Sweden to shut down its nuclear power stations on the Sound. Denmark would also promote battery-powered cars.
In Denmark, hippie generation students, similar to those of Amsterdam, occupied empty, decaying houses, many of which in Christianshavn, a suburb of Copenhagen, which they declared a "free state". Denmark was reluctant to use its police.
The 1970es saw the apperance of new political parties, such as the Progess Party, lead by maverick Mogens Glistrup, who openly advocated the abolition of income taxation, and the Greens.

since 1990
In 1985 Denmark signed the Schengen Agreement, which resulted in the abolition of border controls with Germany and Norway, and since 2001 with Sweden. Denmark did not join the Euro Zone in 2002. A combined bridge and tunnel since 2000 connects Copenhagen with Sweden. In 2003, Denmark joined the Coalition of the Willing and contributed to the forces occupying Iraq.
A cartoon published in a Danish newspaper ridiculing Prophet Muhammad resulted in Danish embassies, consulates and businesses being exposed to demonstrations, boycott etc.
In 2004, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark married Australian Mary Elizabeth Donaldson.
