In 1700, Copenhagen was bombarded from the sea, and in 1713 some old warship were set aground by the straight and narrow path in the entering to Copenhagen so the city was better protected from the sea. One of the warships was Trekroner.
Trekroner was close to two of Copenhagen's most dramatic events. Firstly, Battle of Copenhagen in 1801 and since the bombardment of Copenhagen in 1807.
In 1801, Trekroner was a serious threat to the British assault force, and therefore Lord Nelson kept the naval force out of reach.
