Queen Margrethe II of Denmark ascended to the throne on Jan. 14, 1972, becoming only the second woman to rule Denmark since the reign of Queen Margrethe I from 1387 to 1412.


An accomplished artist, the queen paints realistic landscapes and abstract artworks and has designed stage sets and costumes for the ballet, but in one now-famous instance, she preferred to work under a pseudonym.


The illustrations she did for the 1977 Danish language edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" were published under the name Ingahild Grathmer.
