    Her wedding gown was made by 300 tailors.
    Their wedding ceremony was conducted in French since she did not know English and he did not know Danish.
    Relations between her and James deteriorated until a member of court noted, ‘There is nothing but lurking hatred disguised with cunning dissimulation betwixt the King and the Queen.’
    She shot James’ favorite dog while hunting (1613).
    She caused a scandal when she performed in a court masque while six months pregnant and with her skin painted to resemble a ‘blackamore.’
    James tended to ignore her, preferring the advice and company of male ‘favorites.’
    She suffered three miscarriages and four of her children died in infancy or early childhood.
    James refused to let her see her oldest son, Henry, until James became King of England, whereupon she refused to travel to London unless she was granted custody of Henry.
    After the death of Henry at age 18 from typhoid (1612), her health deteriorated and she increasingly withdrew from public life.
