Fredericia is a medium-sized fortress town, founded in 1650 by Frederick III in the Fredericia municipality, eastern Jutland, Denmark. Fredericia was almost selected as the Danish capital, due to its central location and large port, but in the end, Copenhagen retained the title due to its larger population.
