- Here you will find more stories and facts on the Royal Danish Navy, and the Royal Danish-Norwegian Navy.
Danish Naval History
Denmark has one of the oldest navies of the world, and at a time, also one of the mightiest navies of the world.
Until 1814 the kingdom was a union between Denmark and Norway, whereas the naval history of Denmark actually also means the history of the Royal Danish-Norwegian Navy.
This web-site will primarily cover the last 200 years of Danish Naval History.
We will focus on the many incidents of this period.
Some of which are less known, and others just forgotten.
On this Website, you will find several in-depth articles covering many aspects of the Danish Naval History.
You may also find information on the period before 1801, including an artichle meant as an introduction to the Royal Danish-Norwegian Navy giving a short view of the 300 years before 1801.
Not just for the History Freaks
All the articles are briefly introduced, especially to those who just want to re-fresh their memories.
The cover stories will be updated frequently with more in-depth stories, covering most possible aspects of the history.
This goal is to benefit maritime enthusiasts and, naturally, to augment the documentation available on this web-site.
