[edit] Notes

  • On 29 August 1943, the Danish govenment resigned, refusing to grant further concessions to Nazi Germany. All government operations were assumed by the permanent secretaries of the individual departments, and this arrangement lasted until the Liberation of Denmark on 5 May 1945. Since King Christian X never accepted the resignation of the government, it existed de jure until a new cabinet was formed on 5 May 1945.
  • Hans R. Knudsen died in office on 4 November 1962. A successor was not appointed until 15 November.
