  • atle-wold-boklansering Book launch: Privateering and Diplomacy, 1793-1807 Sep. 23, 2020 3:15 PM

    In late February 1793, a report landed on the desk of Daniel Hailes, the British diplomatic representative in Copenhagen, stating that a French privateer had been sighted off the Southern-Norwegian coastal town of Mandal. This was the start of what would become a long-lasting debate between Great Britain on the one hand, and the dual-monarchy of Denmark-Norway on the other.
