Each Plate Has Small Glue Marks On Reverse Where They Were Tipped In To An Album. Christian Iv (Danish: Christian Den Fjerde; 1577 - 1648), Sometimes Colloquially Referred To As Christian Firtal In Denmark And Christian Kvart Or Quart In Norway, Was King Of Denmark-Norway And Duke Of Holstein And Schleswig From 1588 To 1648. His 59-Year Reign Is The Longest Of Danish Monarchs, And Of Scandinavian Monarchies. A Member Of The House Of Oldenburg, Christian Began His Personal Rule Of Denmark In 1596 At The Age Of 19. He Is Frequently Remembered As One Of The Most Popular, Ambitious, And Proactive Danish Kings, Having Initiated Many Reforms And Projects. Christian Iv Obtained For His Kingdom A Level Of Stability And Wealth That Was Virtually Unmatched Elsewhere In Europe. He Engaged Denmark In Numerous Wars, Most Notably The Thirty Years' War (1618-48), Which Devastated Much Of Germany, Undermined The Danish Economy, And Cost Denmark Some Of Its Conquered Territories. He Renamed The Norwegian Capital Oslo As Christiania After Himself, A Name Used Until 1925. Christian Was Reckoned A Typical Renaissance King, And Excelled In Hiring In Musicians And Artists From All Over Europe. Many English Musicians Were Employed By Him At Several Times, Among Them William Brade, John Bull And John Dowland. Dowland Accompanied The King On His Tours, And As He Was Employed In 1603, Rumour Has It He Was In Norway As Well. Christian Was An Agile Dancer, And His Court Was Reckoned The Second Most "Musical" Court In Europe, Only Ranking Behind That Of Elizabeth I Of England. Christian Maintained Good Contact With His Sister Anne, Who Was Married To James Vi Of Scotland. His Other Sister, Elizabeth, Was Married To The Duke Of Brunswick-L√ľneburg, And Artists And Musicians Travelled Freely Between The Courts.
