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.


The Queen's Crown, made for Queen Sophie Magdalene by court jeweller Frederik (I) Fabritius in 1731. It was in use until 1840. The table-cut stones are believed to have come from Queen Sophie Amalie's crown from 1648.
