Danish Royal Palace at Frederiksborg gutted by fire
The Frederiksborg Palace at Hillerod in Denmark was an Inigo Jones-designed seventeenth century residence of Danish kings about five miles from Copenhagen. On the night of December 17-18, 1859, with King Frederick VII asleep there, the palace was largely gutted by fire. No-one was hurt and the building was restored. It now houses the Museum of National History. (By John Osborne)
