Between 1792 and 1815 Great Britain and France fought for political and economic dominance in Europe. Though both nations disrupted their respective sea trade, neutral shipping prospered. Thus, for many years, the Kingdom of Denmark maintained its neutrality and benefitted economically from this bitterly fought war.1 This chapter, however, examines the difficult years Denmark experienced at war with Britain, allied with France and, most importantly, faced with the destructive policies of the Continental System.
