Kronborg Castle was occupied by the swedish King Karl Gustav 10 in 1658-59 under the war between Denmark and Sweden. All Denmark was occupied by foreign troops except Copenhagen, which was occupied of swedish troops fra august 1658 until the swedish attack on the city 11. february 1659.

The attack failed and Denmark survived as a nation. But 20 years of war with Sweden had costed big sufferings for the population and loss of landscapes to Sweden as Skåne, Halland and Blekinge and parts of Norway.
