This book provides a detailed survey of the Danish navy during the highly influential reign of Christian IV. He created a large and powerful navy with impressive ships and one of Europe's finest dockyards. It was relatively advanced in the design and construction of its warships and the administration of its seamen and dockyard workforce. However, its political and military leadership were highly flawed, reflecting the power struggle between the king and his council at both an international and domestic level, which ultimately led to its crushing defeat at the hands of Sweden. This work offers for the first time a valuable insight into the workings of one of the most significant, but frequently ignored navies in early modern Europe.Table of contentsPrefaceStylistic ConventionsList of PlatesList of Table and FiguresIntroductionChapter One: The Role of the NavyChapter Two: The Navy in Domestic Politics:Chapter Three: The Financial Administration of the Navy:Chapter Four: The Design and Procurement of the Navy's Ships:Chapter Five: The Strength of the Navy:Chapter Six: The Development of the Naval Dockyards:Chapter Seven: The Administration of the Bremerholm Naval Dockyard:Chapter Eight: The Organisation of the Seagoing Navy: :Conclusion: How Good was Christian IV's Navy?Appendix 1: List of Ships:Large WarshipsMedium WarshipsSmall WarshipsGalleys & JagtsTransport ShipsArmed Merchantmen serving in Torstensson WarAppendix 2: Comparative strength of the Danish and Swedish Navies:Bibliography:Index
