Not to be confused with Danelaw.

The Anglo-Dane was a Danish automobile manufactured by H. C. Fredriksen of Copenhagen from 1902 to 1917. Fredriksen began by building bicycles in the 1890s; for these he used British parts - hence the name.

The first cars were light trucks with single-cylinder Belgian Kelecom engines. Later cars were produced with an own design single-cylinder 4-5 hp engines; these featured friction drive using double discs to give an equivalent 12 speed transmission. A few passenger cars were also built with twin-cylinder engines before the company merged with Jan and Thrige who made Triangel commercials until 1945. About 70 Anglo-Danes were made.
