INTRODUCTION.

 

Historic 19th century government documents reveal how the Danish crown

wrapped up its slave trade past by ceding to the British crown its slave trade

guns and military installations in the gold coast. King Frederik VII of Denmark

and Queen Victoria of England transacted a historic arms deal through their

respective crown proxies, Count Reventlow and Viscount Palmerston. The

condition of the deal was a sum of £10,000 *The economic power value of that

income or wealth today is about £32,880,000.00. The British Monarch agreed to

pay. In return, Denmark ceded to her Britannic Majesty all military inventory

(guns, ammunition), barracks, store houses, with fixtures contained in the

military installations comprising of Fort Christianborg *now the seat of the

Ghanian government, Fort Augustaborg, Fort Fedensborg, Fort Kongeensteen

and Fort Prindsensteen. All these items and properties had been used by

Denmark in the trading of slaves. The historic documents also acknowledge

that the traffic of slaves was still ongoing as late as 1849, long after the

Abolition of the Slave Trade Act of 1807.
