Great kent_s 2004-12-19 11:08

It's a great place you found to shoot. But you woke up my curiosity a little bit, now I have to find out who the guy on the horse is. If he's before 1658 he also has a part of the southern swedish history.

Well done Steft

Default To kent_s: The statue

Hi, thanks for your comment!

Shame on me! But I don't know how it is. But I will ask "Tue" here, he knows so much about Copenhagen (or otherwise I will check google.com)

Hej,

If I'm not mistaken, the man on the horse is King Frederik V (but his name on the statue is Frederico Cinqiemo or something like that, however, it's made more Latin). He was the King of Denmark from 1746-1766, so he hasn't reign over Southern Sweden. But there's something 'Swedish' to say about him: I was the father of King Christian VII, about whom Per Olov Enquist has written a great novel "Livl鄢arens bes闥". :)

H鄟sningar,
Lars

Yeah right..... HE (Frederik V) was the father of Christian VII, I wasn't in fact ;) :S
