The history of Rosenborg Castle

Rosenborg Castle was built as the summer residence of King Christian IV, although a few years later, during the reign of his grandson Frederik, it was no longer used. It would only be inhabited again in a couple of emergency situations, when the royal family was forced to move there: with the burning of Christiansborg Palace at the end of the 18th century and with the attack by the British navy on Copenhagen at the beginning of the 19th century.
