MHM Caption Competition: December 2022 – Winners Announced!

1 min read

We asked you to come up with something appropriately witty for this image of Christian I of Denmark, taken from our article on the Battle of Brunkeberg, from the December 2022/January 2023 issue of Military History Matters. Here are the winners:


‘After little success Christian wondered whether it was time to change his dating profile picture’ – Roger Pennyballs


‘I can’t smile, I lost the battle and my teeth’ – Pete Mcnutt

‘Even a new selfie stick couldn’t make Christian I smile in photos’ – David Montgomery

‘Was that the battle of Drunkenberg?’ – Leslie Quilter


  1. Coming four hundred years before the camera, Christian’s invention of the selfie-stick wasn’t the success he had hoped for.

  2. After Denmark’s exit from the World Cup, Christian I got his punishment stick ready to great the team on their return home.
