King Christian VII is generally thought to be the result of one too many cousins marrying each other. The polite way to put it is that he maybe wasn't the best king ever. The impolite way is that he was a ███████ who ██████ and ████████████ with ███████ ████████████ ███ and really bad breath.

Dr. Johann Friedrich Struensee got into the royal court through some contacts in the nobility, then basically spent two years running things behind the scenes and banging the king's wife.
So the polite thing to say is that he maybe wasn't the most loyal doctor ever.
Struensee did try to use his despotic tyranny to do some good. He tried to abolish noble privilege, torture, unfree labour and censorship of the press and all kinds of other things that were basically guaranteed to make everybody in power hate him. So he was executed pretty quickly.

They made [a pretty good movie] about Struensee and Christian VII - it even got nominated for an Oscar.
