Nobility, danish princess and Queen of France (although never crowned). She was born the daughter of Waldemar I and Sofia of Novgorod. She married Philipp II of France on August 15th 1193, but Philipp refused to continue the marriage after the wedding night and he refused to allow her to be crowned. He repelled her and sent her to the Abbey of Saint-Maur-des-Fosses where he visited her once. The marriage was annulled on November 5th on grounds of consanguinity by French prelates and she was send to the Abbey of Cysoing. She refused to accept the annulment and wrote the Pope, while her brother Knud VI send a delegation to meet with Celestine III. In March 1195 he declared the divorce null and prohibited Philip from marrying again. The king ignored the papal verdict and married Agnes of Meran in May 1196. Celestines successor Innocent III declared in 1198 that this new marriage was void and that Philipp had to take Ingeburg back. Philipp again refused. Subsequently, he was excommunicated and the country was placed under an interdict for more than eight months. Only then was Philipp willing to separate from Agnes and the interdict was lifted.
