Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Carl Edvard Rottwitt died in office 8 February 1860 while also serving the position of Council President (i.e. Prime Minister). A successor was not nominated until 24 February
  2. ^ Carl Peter Gram Leuning died in office 21 July 1867. A successor was not nominated until 4 September
  3. ^ a b On 29 August 1943, the Danish government 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.
