Frederick VIII (Christian Frederik Vilhelm Carl) (3 June 1843 – 14 May 1912) was King of the Kingdom of Denmark from 1906 to 1912. He was the second Danish monarch of the House of Glücksburg.

Before his accession to the throne at age 63, he served as crown prince for 43 years. During the long reign of his father, King Christian IX, he was largely excluded from influence and political power.

In many ways Frederick VIII was a liberal ruler who was much more favorable to the new parliamentarian system than his father had been. Because of his very late accession to the throne, he had only a few years to show his ability and he was weakened by ill health.
