The House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, normally shortened to just the House of Glücksburg, has been the senior line of the German[1] House of Oldenburg since the extinction of the Augustenburg line in 1931. Its members have reigned at various times in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Greece, the United Kingdom and several northern German states.

Current monarchs King Charles III of the United Kingdom, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, and King Harald V of Norway, as well as former queens consort Anne-Marie of Greece and Sofía of Spain, are patrilineal members of cadet branches of the House of Glücksburg.[2][3][4]

The head of the house is Ferdinand, Prince of Schleswig-Holstein.
