You may be forgiven for thinking that in the 1500's children didn't have homework.
Wrong!

Here is the writing book of a little prince named Christian, later to become King Christian IV: Christian IV's skrivebog - Christian IV's writing book. 1583-1591 - a set on Flickr
He probably loathed writing the same sentences again and again and.. back in 1583-1591.

We can see his writing style develope over the years.

------------------

King Christian IV is probably the most famous king in Danish history, however he was also one of the most eager witchunters in his days.

This is a case from 1634, where a cobbler had ended up in financial troubles and as a last resort he wrote to the Devil - with his own blood: http://www.flickr.com/photos/statens...57627051621373
http://www.flickr.com/photos/statens...57627051621373
He was sentenced to death.

However, Christian IV's son, Frederik III, obviously didn't believe in witchcraft and such trials were quickly abolished. The last witch to be executed DK happened in 1693. http://www.flickr.com/photos/statens...57627051621373
Actually it's more likely she was just a simple murderer, who had poisoned someone to death. But there were no shortages of people who came forward and accused her of all sorts of things. - So "Yeah, yeah, yeah, we'll execute her for a being a witch as well. She's bad to bone anyway".
