The general public assumes that the danish queen has no real power. This is, however, not the case. Since it is required by danish law that the queen must appoint each of the ministers before they can assume their office, the danish queen is theoretically capable of preventing a new government after an election. While practicing said power would probably lead to a change in the danish law, she still posses(es?) the capability of denying an elected individual the right (or privilege, depending on how you look at it) to assume his office.


The publication you refer to, I beleive, is the june 1998 issue (I may have the months messed up, but I'm pretty sure it was the summer of 98) of National geographic, by the name of 'Civilized Denmark'. I remember this because, to be hones, the summer of 98 was *really* boring, and everyone made quite a fuss about it. Oh, and said article missed several important negative aspects od Denmark, but I won't go there.
