Frederiksborg Palace
Frederiksborg Castle (Danish: Frederiksborg Slot) is a palatial complex in Hillerød, Denmark. It was built as a royal residence for King Christian IV of Denmark-Norway in the early 17th century, replacing an older castle acquired by Frederick II and becoming the largest Renaissance residence in Scandinavia. Situated on three islets in the Slotssøen (castle lake), it is adjoined by a large formal garden in the Baroque style. After a serious fire in 1859, the castle was rebuilt on the basis of old plans and paintings. Thanks to public support and the brewer J. C. Jacobsen, the building and its apartments were fully restored by 1882 when it was reopened to the public as the Danish Museum of National History. Open throughout the year, the museum contains the largest collection of portrait paintings in Denmark

Treaty Of Frederiksborg
The Treaty of Frederiksborg (Danish: Frederiksborgfreden) was a treaty signed at Frederiksborg Castle, Zealand, on 3 July 1720 (14 July 1720 according to the Gregorian calendar), ending the Great Northern War between Denmark-Norway and Sweden. Their Danish-Swedish part of the conflict began in 1700 but peace was restored the same year. Denmark rejoined the war in 1709 in a campaign to regain their lost provinces, Scania, Blekinge and Halland. However the Swedish general Magnus Stenbock managed to defend the provinces without presence of the king, Charles XII. On other fronts Sweden was not so lucky, primarily at the hands of Russia in 1721, and the destruction of the Swedish army from Stralsund, Swedish Pomerania. Sweden paid 600,000 Riksdaler in damages (as deposit for this money, Denmark temporary had held Wismar, in Swedish Pomerania), broke her alliance with Holstein and forfeited her right to duty-free passage of Øresund
