The United Venstre, a federation of various Venstre groupings in the Danish Parliament, was founded on June 30, 1870. This makes Venstre the oldest political party in Denmark. Venstre was the first democratic party in Denmark and was represented in the provincial assemblies at the beginning of the 19th century and in the first directly elected parliament in 1849. Venstre has existed as an organized party since 1870.
