The King on his white horse. This picture shows one of the most formal and heavily symbolic events of with the reunification festivities. The King had agreed to fulfil the old prophecy that Southern Jutland would become Danish again on the day the Danish King came riding over the border on a white horse. There was no white horse in the royal stables, but there was one at Visborggård Manor near Hadsund. This horse, which bore the name 'Malgré Tout', was transported to Taps just north of Christiansfeld. Here the King got out of his car, mounted the horse, and rode the first kilometre into Southern Jutland on his milk-white steed to the joyous acclaim of the assembled throng. A memorial stone has been placed at the spot where the King mounted the horse. Afterwards, no one else was allowed to ride the white horse, and it grazed in green pastures until its death in 1922. Like the steed of an ancient chieftain, the horse interred in a high burial mound at Visborggård Manor. On a stone the following text is inscribed: 'The King over the border I proudly bore, when Southern Jutland became Danish once more'. Before the burial, one of the horse's hooves was cut off and silver-plated. It was presented to Christian X as a memento of the great day and stands to this day on the desk in Christian X's office at Amalienborg. It bears the same text as the memorial stone on the horse's grave. The horse's name, 'Malgré Tout', means 'Despite Everything', and many contemporaries interpreted the name as an expression of the fact that all ended well for Southern Jutland – despite everything.
