The year is 1718. King Charles XII of Sweden is yet again planning an attack of the fortress Fredriktsen in Fredrikshald (Halden).
Two years earlier - in 1716 - he had to turn around. The fleet with his supplies was beaten and the city was set in fire by its own citizens. But this time the king has a different strategy...
Join in on a guided tour from Strömstad harbour, along the path of king Charles' attempt to ingest the fortress Fredriksten. In Halden harbour a uniformed guide will take on the last stage - up to the fortress - where the king was put to rest by a Norwegian. Or was it a Swede who, in dispare, shot his own king...?
