The 15th-century Baltic warship served as a “floating castle” for a fearless king

A 15th-century royal warship resting off the coast of Sweden once served as a “floating castle” for an intrepid king, according to new underwater research that has revealed the ship’s cannons, guns, crossbows and aft superstructure.

New findings from the wreckage of the Gribshunden, the flagship of King Hans (or John) of Denmark until it sank in 1495, show that the ship plied the seas as a fearsome warship armed with dozens of weapons and teeming with soldiers. .
