The Danish word borg, which appears at the end of many castle and palace names literally means "fortified castle", but it is no clear indication that the property is indeed fortified. For example, Amalienborgis translated as Amalienborg Palace. The Danish word palæ translates to "mansion", and is most often used as an indication of a non-royal, urban mansion. Exceptions are the four palæer(plural) at Amalienborg Palace, the four individual buildings that make up the Amalienborg Palace complex. These were originally non-royal, urban mansions, which were taken over by royalty in the late 18th century.
