Sjøslaget ved Bornholm startet Gyldenløvefeiden
Gyldenløvefeiden startet med sjøslaget ved Bornholm. Slaget var det første maritime sammenstøtet under feiden mellom Danmark-Norge og Sverige som også kalles den skånske krig. Under slaget mønstret Danmark-Norge 18 linjeskip og 8 fregatter, samt 9 mindre fartøyer hvorav 8 skip fra Nederland med 1 249 kanoner og 6 000 mann om bord. Svenskene hadde 52 linjeskip og fregatter, samt flere mindre fartøyer med rundt 2 180 kanoner og 11 870 mann om bord. Slaget endte uavgjort, men regnes som en strategisk seier for Danmark-Norge og Nederlandene.

    Øyvind Flatnes Svartkrutt.net is owned and maintained me whose name is Øyvind Flatnes. I'm a Norwegian black powder shooter and I started this web site in February 2000. The ambition was to provide Norwegians with a black powder site in our native language, but since then most of the content is also translated to English. I'm also the author of a black powder book, which was published in March 2005. This book is currently available in Norwegian only.

    On svartkrutt.net you can read my articles about various black powder related activities, participate on the international discussion board, chat or find interesting black powder or antique firearms on the market pages. The discussion forum has become a valuable archive of interesting articles. Sign up and participate!
