Notes
a. Note:   NI113463
Note:   Dorothea of Brandenburg (1430/1431 - November 10, 1495) was the consort of Christopher of Bavaria and Christian I of Denmark. She is also known as Dorothea of Hohenzollern and as Dorothy Achillies. She was queen of Denmark (1445-1448 and 1449-1481), Norway (1445-1448 and 1450-1481) and Sweden (1447-1448 and 1457-1464) two times each. Dorothea was born in 1430 or 1431 to John, Margrave of Brandenburg-Kulmbach and Barbara of Saxe-Wittenberg (1405-1465). She had two sisters: Barbara (1423-1481, who became the Marchioness of Mantua, and Elisabeth (14??-1451), who married Joachim I Mlodszy, Duke of Pomerania (14??-1451). She married, on 12 September 1445, Christopher of Bavaria, the King of Denmark from 1440-1448, Sweden from 1441-1448 and Norway from 1442-1448. The wedding was held in Copenhagen. She was crowned queen of the three kingdoms on 14 September 1445. After Christopher's death, Dorothea married the next elected king, King Christian I of Denmark, on 28 October 1449. In 1457, she became queen of Sweden for the second time and was crowned in Uppsala Cathedral. Dorothea was given very large estates in Sweden at her first wedding, which she lost control over in 1464. For the rest of her life, she fought to regain control over them, and also asked for the help of the Pope. She was given Holstein as her fief, and in 1481, she made her youngest son Frederik regent there. In 1488 she visited the Pope in Rome. She is described as economical and energetic and she is believed to have exerted political influence.
