Statue of Queen Dagmar (Ribe, Denmark)

    Queen Dagmar (b. Meissen, Germany, 1186 – d.1212, Ribe, Denmark) Markéta Přemyslovna of Bohemia, was Queen of Denmark as the first spouse of King Valdemar II. She was the daughter of King Ottokar I of Bohemia and his first wife, Adelaide of Meissen. Not many things are known about Dagmar as a person. Most of the image of Dagmar comes from later folksongs, myths and legends, designed to present her as an ideal Christian queen; mild, patient and universally loved, in contrast to her unpopular successor, Queen Berengaria.
