Many of Rosenborg's main attractions are on display, especially the Crown Jewels, the Crown Regalia, the Crown of the Absolutist Kings and the Queens' Crown.

 

The collection of Crown Jewels for use by the reigning Queen was established with the will of Queen Sophie Magdalene in 1746 and subsequently enlarged through gifts from later queens and princesses.

 

Christian IV's crown, made 1595-1596 by Dirich Fyring in Odense. Gold with enamel, table-cut stones and pearls; total weight 2895 g. The figures on the crown's large points illustrate the virtues and powers of a king. Inside are the coats-of-arms of the royal provinces. The crown was used for the last time at Frederik III's coronation in 1648.
