100 Years Since the Marriage of Prince René of Bourbon-Parma and Princess Margrethe of Denmark

One hundred years ago today, on 9 June 1921, Princess Margrethe of Denmark married Prince René of Bourbon-Parma (1894-1962), one of the sons of Duke Roberto of Parma and Infanta Maria Antonia of Portugal. Princess Margrethe of Denmark (1895-1992) was the only daughter of Prince Valdemar of Denmark (1858-1939) and his wife Princess Marie (1865-1909; née Orléans). René and Margrethe were wed at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Copenhagen.
