Other Title

  • Theodore Roosevelt in Norway and Denmark, 1910 [1]


  • While returning from Africa in 1910, Theodore Roosevelt visited many European countries, including Denmark, May 2-3, and Norway, May 4-6. Roosevelt, King Haakon, Edith Roosevelt, Queen Maud, Ethel Roosevelt, Kermit Roosevelt, and others enter carriages outside the railroad station in Oslo, Norway. Carriages arrive at the wharf in Helsingør, Denmark. Roosevelt and Kermit arrive by carriage outside the National Theater in Oslo where he is to deliver his acceptance speech for the 1906 Nobel Peace Prize. They are greeted by King Haakon and others. Ethel, probably Edith, and Queen Maud arrive at the theater. Crowds gather outside King Frederick University, Oslo.
  • Roosevelt, Crown Prince Christian, later King Christian X, Kermit, Edith, and Ethel enter carriages in Copenhagen, Denmark. The carriage with Roosevelt and Prince Christian arrives at Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen. Roosevelt, a woman who may be Katharine M. Egan, and Dr. Maurice Francis Egan, American minister to Denmark (barely visible on far left), arrive by auto and are greeted by unidentified men. There is a pan of the crowds at Frederiksborg Castle in Denmark. Roosevelt and entourage arrive, as Danish soldiers march by, visit, and bid hosts goodbye at Kronborg Castle, Denmark. Roosevelt and the Egans board the steamer Queen Maud. The ship sails past Kronborg Castle, a Danish naval ship, and returns to Copenhagen. Roosevelt leaves the ship and enters a carriage.
