Denmark owned the islands for 162 years, since they took over in 1755. The Danish West India Guinea Company Denmark that owned the islands went bankrupt in 1755, and that made the King of Denmark-Norway to take direct control of the three main islands. The islands were occupied by United Kingdom in 1801–1802 and 1807–1815, during the Napoleonic Wars, where the Danes were on the side of the French, and got a bigtime beating back in Denmark
