Encyclopedia Article for Randers

city, Arhus amtskommune (county commune), eastern Jutland, Denmark. It lies at the mouth of the Guden River along Randers Fjord, northwest of Arhus. First mentioned in 1086, it was chartered in 1302 and became an important market and ecclesiastical centre in the Middle Ages. In 1340 the tyrant Count Gerhard of Holstein was assassinated there by the Danish national hero Niels Ebbesen. Despite successive fires in the 17th century, some medieval merchants' houses have survived, as have St. Morten Church (1490) and the Holy Ghost Monastery (1510). Randers manufactures railway rolling stock, gloves, beer, bacon, agricultural machinery, and dairy products. Pop. (1992 est.) 55,358.
