Dronning Dagmar

Birth: 1186 Meissen Meißener Landkreis Saxony (Sachsen), Germany Death: May 24, 1212, Denmark

Dagmar of Bohemia (also known as Markéta of Bohemia) was Queen consort of Denmark as the first wife of King Valdemar II of Denmark. She was the daughter of King Přemysl I Ottokar of Bohemia and his first wife, Adelheid of Meissen. Dagmar married Valdemar II in 1205 in Lübeck. She quickly won over the hearts of the Danes. In 1209, the new queen, gave birth to her son Valdemar. Queen Dagmar died on 24 May 1212 while giving birth to her second son. There is an Old folk ballad that on her deathbed she begged Valdemar to marry Kirsten, the daughter of Karl von Rise, and not the "beautiful flower" Berengária of Portugal, which he did in 1214. In other words, she predicted a struggle for the Danish throne between the sons of Berengaria. Queen Dagmar is buried in St. Bendt's Church in Ringsted, Denmark, on one side of Valdemar II, with Queen Berengária buried on the other side of the King.
