This introductory chapter begins with a brief description of the constitutional transformation going on in Denmark during the 16th and 17th centuries. It then discusses the factors that conditioned Denmark's ‘European integration’, its rise to prominence in European affairs, and its decline into international insignificance. A medieval background of Denmark is also presented.
