Hold the **** up, history lesson condensed in the blue spoiler thingy:
Denmark was not actually allied with Napoleon's France until AFTER the Brits terrorbombed Copenhagen.
Denmark's foreign policy in the early stages of the Napoleonic wars was armed neutrality, meaning that we would not take a stance on the wars and would shoot at anyone who would try to hinder neutral Danish trade.
The Brits then forced us to sign the Anglo-Russian neutrality convention that meant that we could no longer sail with contraband or military goods and that we could no longer reject British inspections.
As part of the Franco-Russian peace of 1807, the neutral states were forced to join France's continental blockade of Britain, prompting Great Britain to issue an ultimatum to Denmark; Join our alliance or give us your fleet.
Denmark could not protect its trade convoys without a fleet and the chances of victory for Denmark in an alliance with Great Britain defending against France would be very slim indeed, so the choice was clear; ignore the ultimatum.
The Brits followed up on their ultimatum on 2nd of September 1807, they came and bombed the hell out of the civilian population and the military installations in Copenhagen, stole the Danish fleet and sailed off, forcing Denmark to ally with France for the rest of the Napoleonic wars.


TL;DR / Moral of the story:
If you bomb a neutral nation, its kinda your own fault if they ally with your enemy.
