about the place, Tranquebar:

Little is known about it, but the Portuguese, English and Dutch were not the only ones to establish trading posts in India. Tranquebar (renamed to Tharangambadi) is a prime example. The city was founded by King Chirstian IV of Denmark who leased the site to the Rajah of Tanjore until it was sold to the English (through the British East India Company) in 1845.
