King Christian II and the Crusade to Greenland

Tid: 4. april - 31. oktober
Sted: The Mayor's Yard

Come and see the exhibition about Christian II and the Crusade to Greenland.

In 1520, Christian II ordered his admiral, Søren Nordby, to embark on a crusade to Greenland. The goal was to reconquer Greenland from the pagans, reinstate a bishop and to find a sailing route to India. The crusade was never carried out. The exhibition will focus on several elements, including Christian II, his naval admiral, Søren Nordby, the crusade, and attitudes at the time regarding the pagans to the north, which will also be the theme of Danehof 2020.
