City of Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Germany, 1468 - 1500
Hamburg has been destroyed, or nearly so, many times. In 845, 600 Viking ships sailed up the River Elbe and destroyed Hamburg, at that time a town of around 500 inhabitants. In 1030, King Mieszko II Lambert of Poland burned down the city. Valdemar II of Denmark raided and occupied Hamburg in 1201 and in 1214. The Black Death killed at least 60% of the population in 1350. Hamburg experienced several great fires, most notably in 1284 and 1842, and on 23 July 1943 Allied firebombing completely destroyed entire boroughs. Still, today it is the second largest city in Germany and the eighth largest city in the European Union.
