Encyclopedia > Treaty of Roskilde

The Treaty of Roskilde was signed on February 26, 1658 in the Danish city Roskilde, whereby the king of Denmark-Norway sacrificed nearly half his territory to save the rest.

But this was not enough for the king, and at the Council held at Gottorp on July 7, Charles X Gustav resolved to wipe from the map of Europe an inconvenient rival, and without any warning, in defiance of all international equity, let loose his veterans upon Denmark-Norway a second time.
