The first castle
After several decades of decay, the castle was rebuilt during the 1650's and the 1660's. The castle now became the residence of the governor, and office of the provinical government.
A severe fire in 1727 destroyed large parts of the castle, and it was leftin ruins until 1741 when Carl Hårleman was commissioned to rebuild it into a modern residence and government office. The rebuildning was completed in 1754.
