  • Description

    Scandinavian Kings Meet (Gustave, Christian and Haakon).

    Location of events unknown.

    King Haakon VII of Norway; his elder brother King Christian X of Denmark and King Gustaf V of Sweden meet. Cars approaching on street; crowd on sides; cheering, waving flags of Scandinavian countries. The 3 Kings walk toward camera; across a large open square - crowds on both sides. The Kings all wear dark coats & top hats; and they take turns tipping their hats - almost in a kind of rhythm. Other men also dressed nearly identically.

    Intertitle: 'Crowd cheering the monarchs as they appear on the balcony'.

    DS pan over (non-cheering) crowd looking up at balcony. Kings may be seen in L/S on the balcony.

    Gustaf & Haakon were both sons of King Fredereick VIII of Denmark.
