Norway’s Breakaway from Denmark.


Frederik 6th had these years stiff minded in spite of his ministres advice hold on to the treaty with Napoleon. In 1810 the brothers Bernstorff had resigned, mostly because they could not approve of his governing and his French friendly foreign politics.

Later king Frederik, because of fear for the Swedish plans to conquer Norway, tryed to be amitted to the great coalition in 1813, but Bernadotte forced through that Denmark could not anticipate unless Norway was lost.
Then Frederik 6th had no other options than to tie Denmark even closer to France. Later in the year 1813 Karl Johan attacked Holsten with a Sweedish-Russian army. A Danish corps fought with success at Sehsted, but then became surrounded in Rensborg. The king stayed together with the greater part of the army in Funen, and they expected, that he now would fight untill the end to keep Norway. Grundtvig urged the students to spread all over the country and encurage every man able to fight to join the army. But towards all of Europa Frederik 6th did not dare to continue the resistance.

In January 1814 he signed the peace in Kiel, by which Norway was detached from Denmark to be united with Sweden. As a kind of payment he got Swedish Pommern, which the next year was exchanged for Lauenburg.
From now on he joined the coalition, and when the Allies after 1815 occupied a part of France, Danish troops also participated in the occupation.
