Facts about the castle.
Frederiksborg Castle is a castle in Hillerod, Denmark. It was built as a royal residence for King Christian IV, and is now known as The Museum of National History. The current building replaced a previous castle erected by Frederick II, and is the largest Renaissance palace in Scandinavia. The Palace is located on three small islands in the middle of Palace Lake, (Danish, Slotsø), and is adjoined by a large, baroque formal garden.
The oldest parts of the castle date back to 1560, and were built by King Frederick II, after whom the palace is named.

Most of the current palace, however, was built from 1602 two 1620 by Christian IV using Dutch architects Hans and Lorenz van Steenwinckel, and follows the Dutch style favored by Christian IV for his new building in Copenhagen.

After Christian IV’s death in 1648, the palace was used mainly for ceremonial events, primarily the anointing and Crowning of the Absolute Monarchs in the palace church. The following Danish kings and queens were crowned here:

1671: Christian V and Charlotte Amalie of Hesse-Kassel
1700: Frederick IV and Louise of Mecklenburg-Güstrow
1721: Anna Sophia, consort of Frederick IV
1731: Christian VI and Sophia Magdalen of Brandenburg-Kulmbach
1747: Frederick V and Louise of Great Britain
1752: Juliana Maria of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, consort of Frederick V
1815: Frederick VI and Marie of Hesse-Kassel
1840: Christian VIII and Caroline Amalie of Schleswig-Holstein
