Revealed by accident When casting the foundations of the present Christiansborg Palace, workers struck upon the ruins of older buildings and the remnants of the initial wall.Experts were called in from the National Museum, and a close inspection revealed that the ruins dated back as far as 1167.

The most famous prisoner was Christian IV’s favourite daughter, Leonora Christine. Rebuilt several times After 1369, Copenhagen Castle was rebuilt on top of the remains of Absalon’s Castle.
