The barracks of Bådsmandsstræde (Bådsmandsstrædes Kaserne) housed the Royal Artillery Regiment, the Army Materiel Command and ammunition laboratories and depots.
The Royal House had selected the Palace Chapel at Christiansborg Palace as their future parish church in 1732.
Originally a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the early 15th century.
Beginning in the 17th century it consolidated its position as a regional centre of power with its institutions, defences and armed forces.
The Royal Cathedral The Cathedral had for a long time been associated with the Royal family - where the Royal House used the Cathedral for their ceremonial events such as crowning and weddings.
The first royal ceremony in the second Cathedral from 1316 was when King Valdemar IV - nickname Atterdag - (Tomorrow - there is also a day) - (1320-1375 - ruled Denmark 1340-1375) let his ten-year old daughter Margrethe - later Queen Margrethe I - marry to King Haakon of Norway in 1363 - and then when King Christian I and Queen Dorothea were crowned and married in 1449 - the Cathedral obtained the status of being the prime church for the Royals.
After suffering from the effects of plague and fire in the 18th century, the city underwent a period of redevelopment.
