Greenland
1963-1974

Greenland is an autonomous region of Denmark with the Danish king (or queen) as the Head of Government.  King Frederik IX was therefore also king of Greenland from 1947 when he assumed the throne after his late father, King Christian X, and until his death in 1972.  

Until 1969 Greenlandic stamps carried the country's name only in Danish.  Stamps issued on and after 11th March 1969 all carry the country's name in two languages, Greenlandic and Danish.  The local name of the country is Kalaallit Nunaat, literally meaning "The Land of Man".  

Until 1978 this was written in the old fashioned way as "Kalâtdlit Nunât", but on stamps issued on and after 17th April 1978 the spelling changed to the modern version "Kalaallit Nunaat".
