This is a beautiful 1710 map of Denmark by Guillaume De L'isle. It covers all of Jutland and the islands of Zealand, Funen and Lolland. Parts of southern Sweden and northern Germany are also included. The map renders the entire region in extraordinary detail offering both topographical and political information with forest and mountains beautifully rendered in profile. Some coastal features are also included.This map was made at time when the region was in the midst of the Great Northern War (1700-1721). The Swedish Empire was one of the great European powers but at the time was ruled by an inexperienced king, Charles in xII. Peter the Great of Russia, sensing a perfect time to win access to the Baltic and the Black Sea, formed an alliance with Denmark-Norway and Sain xony and declared war on the Swedish Empire. The war eventually resulted in a Russian victory and ended in 1721. The Treaty of Frederiksborg, signed between Sweden and Denmark-Norway granted Denmark Holstein-Gottorp.This map was created by Guillaume De L'isle in 1710 and was included in the Atlas de Geographie.
