Historical Danish Military Uniforms

I found the attached photo in with family photos from my father's parents. My father's family was of entirely Danish descent. There's nothing written on the back, and I don't recognize the man in the photo from any other labeled family photos. Most of my family came from Aalborg, although one branch came from Slesvig, and that great-grandfather fought in the War of 1864.

I'm wondering whether the military dress provides any clues about time period, service, etc. I found a wonderful site ( with lots of pictures of uniforms, but the hat in this photo seems quite different from anything I found there. Does anyone know have more knowledge of Danish military uniforms than I and recognize the military dress? Or could this be a well-known Danish historical figure that would be familiar to someone born in Denmark?

Any insights will be greatly appreciated!
