Back in May 2017, I visited Copenhagen for a long weekend and decided to take the train up to Kronborg castle. Apart from being considered home of Hamlet, prince of Denmark, the castle also has another claim to fame. For being the home of Holger the Dane.
Apparently the legend goes that Holger the Dane sleeps in the casemates of Kronborg castle. He will awaken the day Denmark is threatened. On awakening he will protect his country by vanquishing the threat. I’m not sure if he will go back to sleep after that. I learnt that this legend is quite popular in the country.
Does your country have any sleeping legends who will come to the motherland’s rescue?
