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)
