Geocache Description:


Danmark

Sønderborg Slot

Det oprindelige Sønderborg Slot opførtes ca. 1170 på en holm i Als Sund, som senere blev landfast med Als. Borgen indgik i en kæde af befæstninger, som Valdemar 1. den Store lod opføre. I de følgende århundreder blev Als og Sønderborg et vigtigt stridsobjekt mellem den danske konge og hertugen af Slesvig, og borgen vandrede frem og tilbage mellem de to parter. Et højdepunkt i slottets historie var brylluppet i 1340 mellem den senere Valdemar 4. Atterdag og hertugens søster, Helvig.

Fra 1460 indgik borgen i den kongelige del af Hertugdømmerne og blev regelmæssigt benyttet både af kong Hans og af Christian 2. i dennes regeringstid. 1532-49 var den da afsatte Christian 2. dansk-holstensk statsfange på Sønderborg Slot. Her levede han under fyrstelige vilkår, men i perioder stærkt bevogtet. Fortællingen om, at den rastløse konge sled en rille i et rundt stenbord, er grundløs og har rødder i 1600-t. Ej heller var fangenskabet begrænset til Blåtårn; han deltog undertiden i adelige jagter på Als.

Sønderborg Castle

Sønderborg Castle began probably as a fortified tower constructed by Valdemar the Great in 1158, built on an islet in Als Strait (Als Sund) that later was connected to the island of Als. The castle was built to provide protection against attacks by the Wends and was part of a larger system of fortifications. Over the centuries, the castle has gradually been enlarged and rebuilt.

In the years following construction of Valdemar's fortified tower, an important struggle developed between the Danish king and the duke of Schloneswig over ownership of the island of Als and the town of Sønderborg. Ownership of the castle changed hands many times.

A peak in the history of the castle was the wedding of Valdemar IV of Denmark (Valdemar Atterdag) (ca. 1320-1375) to Helvig of Schleswig, the sister of Valdemar V, Duke of Schleswig.

Around 1350, the castle was expanded significantly by the addition of both the Blue Tower (Blåtårn) and huge outer walls. In 1490, the fortress became the property of the Danish crown. Both King Hans and his son Christian II extended Sønderborg Castle and made it into one of the country's strongest fortresses.

In 1532, Christian II was lured into an ambush and taken to Sønderborg Castle, where he was held as a prisoner of state for seventeen years. Legend tells that the dethroned king was confined to the Blue Tower, but in reality he lived in comparatively lavish circumstances and probably was allowed freedom of movement within the outer walls, if sometimes under closely guarded conditions. The former king sometimes even joined the noble hunts at Als. The false story about the restless king walking around a round table making a groove in it with his thumb was fabricated long afterward, during the seventeenth century.
