Those figures sound pretty impressive and seem to suggest that once people had heard about the first episode more people wanted to see it. Thanks as ever Muhler!

Those of you who have seen the Danish names for the various manors, palaces and castles in DK, may have wondered about the names.

Here is a guide:

Places ending in "borg", (like Ulfsborg) is derived from German burg = castle. In fact a late medieval castle.

Places ending in "hus", (like Koldinghus) is old Danish, originally meaning a large stone building, like a large impressive house, abbey or castle. Today the word simply means house. So in connection with a manor/castle it's an early medieval castle.

Places ending in "gård" or "herregård" is a large estate or manor. Gård = farm. Herregård = small manor.

Then there is the word "slot". It derives from German schloss and in Danish context it means a manor/estate/castle that is or has been owned by the DRF.

Hence Christiansborg Slot = Christian's Castle previously owned by the DRF.

I learned the bit about "slot" today, so it's been a good day.

OK :) There was a show at TV 2 "En stor dag på godset" about Tranekær Castle where Count Christian Ahlefeldt-Laurvig told about the differences between the names :)

The maps showing the DRF residences and other places has been updated since Alexandra has now moved into Store Kongengade 130.
Here is first Alexandra's new home in relations to Amalienborg: https://app.box.com/s/de14yvevcmd7m2u9btsv0e4cugz5ni93

And here is an updated map over all the residences and what not: https://app.box.com/s/5pc2zsdggt19264bqvfd
(Very large file).

What did he say about the names?

The palace gardens around Charlottenlund Palace were originally in the Baroque style. In the late 1800s, these gardens were changed into the English landscape style.
