  putting the King in Kongens Nytorv
by yooperprof

Favorite thing: Christian V was King of Denmark from 1660-99. He tried unsuccessfully to recapture territory in Skane lost to the Swedes. His equestrian statue stands in the middle of Kongens Nytorv, which was created during his reign.

I wonder why his sculpture is protected by an iron fence. Perhaps he has Swedish enemies?
