(Chapter 30, page 203: …“People are quite angry with your Status Act theory. *)
The Status Act and the Constitution: The status of Iceland within Denmark was constantly debated. In the end the Danes in 1871 made a unilateral decision. Under the Status Act, Iceland was defined as “...an inalienable part of the Danish realm, with special national rights.” The Althing rejected the new Status Act. When the millennium of the settlement of Iceland was celebrated in 1874, Christian IX the King of Denmark made a state visit to his dominion, the first royal visit to Iceland. Jón Sigurðsson, president of Althing and the islanders’ acclaimed leader was not invited as he would have overshadowed the king.
Yet another historical echo in the political thriller "Vulture's Lair" by top Icelandic author Hallur Hallsson.
