Lifelike lions of silver

In Riddersalen the throne chairs stand, guarded by three lifelike silver lions - one walking, one sitting and one partially lying. The purpose of the throne chairs and the three lions was to stage the royal power in a pompous and awe-inspiring manner. 

The king throne in narwhal tusk, the queen throne of silver and the guardian lions are together a spectacular sight!


Crown Jewels and Crowns

In the basement of Rosenborg Castle you will find Skatkammeret, which contains the Danish crown jewels, the crown regalia such as scepter and royal apple, as well as the crown of the queen and the monarchical kings.
The magnificent collection of the Danish crown jewels is the result of a large number of queens and a single princess's great interest in beautiful jewelery and gems. The crown jewels may only be worn by the Queen and only in Denmark. 

The beautiful crown jewels, whose history started with Christian 6.'s queen, Sophie Magdalene, are a must see when visiting Rosenborg Castle.
