Library in Kings Castle

Sometimes history just is amazing, and one 'old' is turned into another 'old'. Hans Christian Andersen (the author 'The ugly Duckling" etc) was one of the first, to suggest to preserve the old castle. In my perception preservation is something you do 'now', but of course 'now' is ever changing. Hans Christian Andersen suggested this around 1830.
The old castle had it's time of pride, and one of the most famous kings in Denmark Christian IV spend a large part of his childhood here, that was in the 16th century. However, a terrible fire in 1808 burned half the castle almost to the ground. The castle wasn't restored until the 1970s.
This magnificient library survived the terrible fire.
