I think it's about time to get an update of the layout of Fredensborg Slot: https://app.box.com/s/j4058zbzjtyaypd0wx0o

The name of Fredensborg Palace meant Castle of the Peace.

IIRC, then the Palace got its name from the builder of the castle - King Frederik IV

I've heard it was named in honour of the peace in 1720 between Denmark-Norway and Sweden that ended D-N's participation in the Great Northern War.
Fredensborg literally means "The castle (borg) of peace (Freden)".

A little.

If you look at the palace from above, with the lake and park towards the top, you'll see a row of connected buildings to the right. They are shops, storage, garages and so on.
If you look at the houses along the road going towards the palace, especially to the left they are, as I understand it, housing for staff, caretakers, gardiners, matron and so on.

Indeed, this is what I have been taught as well. That the castle was named a sort of memorial of the great outcome of the war, hence the name.

I'm afraid this is a misunderstanding; Frederik IX was born March 11th 1899 some 177 years after Fredensborg was built. Maybe you were thinking of Frederik IV who ruled from 1699 to 1730. During his reign he had 2 palaces built; Frederiksberg Palace was finished in 1703 and served as a Summer residence for the royal familly. The first drafts for the palace was made by the young king himself. It is highly likely that Ferderiksberg palace was named after Frederik IV.
There is no doubt however that Fredensborg was named in honour of the peace treaty that ended the Great Nordic War.

Yes, that was a typo
