Christian_X_of_Denmark.jpg(329 × 423 pixels, file size: 28 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)


An official photo of King Christian X of Denmark and Iceland (King of Denmark 1912-1947 and of Iceland 1918-1944).


According to Danish law, all ordinary photographs (i.e. the photo must not considered to be a "work of art") become public domain after 50 years.

This work is unsigned but from the looks of the king, it dates from the 1920s. Although unsigned, it is most probably taken by the official photographer to the court; Lars Peter Elfelt (1866 -1931). In this case, this would also make the image PD-old since this photographer died more than 70 years ago. Valentinian (talk) 10:06, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
