Hakoon VII Haakon VII (born August 3, 1872 death September 21, 1957) was king of Norway from 1905 to 1957. He was baptized Christian Frederik Carl Georg Valdemar Axel, but went under the name of Carl and the prince of Denmark. He married 22 July 1896 with his kusine Maud Charlotte Mary Victoria of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha, Princess of Great Britain and Ireland (born November 26, 1869, death November 20, 1938). He belonged to the first house of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg.
