Christian 5’s eg.
By Femvejskrydset northeast of the Eremitagen in Dyrehaven, there was evidence that Christian 5. was fired by a wounded dear during a parforce hunt in 1698. The spark was a contributing cause to the death of the king the following year, and his name was named after him.
Dyrehaven (Danish ‘The Deer Park’), officially Jægersborg Dyrehave, is a forest park north of Copenhagen. It covers around 11 km2 (4.2 sq mi). Dyrehaven is noted for its mixture of huge, ancient oak trees and large populations of red and fallow deer. In July 2015, it was one of the three forests included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site inscribed as Par force hunting landscape in North Zealand.
