Default The Danes/Danish People (Southern Scandinavians, The People of Denmark)






Danish people or Danes are a nation and ethnic group native to Denmark, who speak Danish. This includes people with a Danish ancestral or ethnic identity, whether living in Denmark, emigrants, or the descendants of emigrants, e.g.: the Danish ethnic minority in Southern Schleswig, a former Danish province. The Danes, as an ethnic group, is part of the larger ethnic group known as Scandinavians.

Five million ethnic Danes live in Denmark today. A minority of approx. 50,000 Danes live in Southern Schleswig in Germany, a former Danish territory, forming around 10% of the local population. In Denmark, the latter group is often referred to as De danske syd for grænsen (Literally: The Danish south of the border) or sydslesvigere (South Schleswigers).

My father has Danish ancestry, and it definitely shows in his physical traits.

This guy is constantly compared to Bill Kaulitz, I bet it bothers him lol.



A somewhat unusual looking (at least in my eyes) Dane, model Freja Beha Erichsen.

Oh, but there are several actual semi-Slavs among the pictures. And one Scottish Tasmanian. And one half English guy.

and I can't see any picture in the last post, Storm?

Ok, I'll see

Princess Mary, from Tasmania, Scottish parents.


Kessler, half English-half Danish.


Half Italian/Slovenian + half Danish. I don't think she looks Danish.

I can't find the others right now - I'm tired and it's late!!!

Ps. Freja Beha Erichsen looks like she could have some Afro ancestry. I wouldn't be surprised if she was one of the slave descendants who live here. However, I looked up some pictures of her, and she's not naturally dark like that, so the pictures could be misleading.
