Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.Frederick IV (11 October 1671 12 October 1730) was the king of Denmark and Norway from 1699 until his death. Frederick was the son of Christian V and Charlotte Amalie of Hesse-Kassel (or Hesse-Cassel). For much of Frederik IV''s reign Denmark was engaged in the Great Northern War (1700 1721) against Sweden. A first short-lived encounter in 1700 ended with a Swedish invasion and threats from Europe''s western naval powers. In 1709 Denmark again entered the war encouraged by the Swedish defeat at Poltava. Frederick IV commanded the Danish troops at the battle of Gadebusch in 1712. Although Denmark emerged on the victorious side, she failed to reconquer lost possessions in southern Sweden. The most important result was the destruction of the pro-Swedish duchy of Holstein-Gottorp re-establishing Denmark''s domination in Schleswig-Holstein.
