Copenhagen, Kobenhavn, Denmark - 1711 - Plague


In 1711, the bubonic plague swept through Copenhagen. The city had been on guard following an outbreak the previous century, requiring all incoming travelers and ships to be certified by the health commission. Still, the illness managed to creep through the city gates, and quickly killed off a third of Copenhagen’s 60,000 citizens.
