    PLEASE, no multi invitations in your comments. Thanks. I AM POSTING MANY DO NOT FEEL YOU HAVE TO COMMENT ON ALL - JUST ENJOY.

    I found it very difficult to get good shot in here with low light and all the glass.

    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 Crown of the Absolute Monarchs (left), used by the kings from Christian V to Christian VIII. Made in Copenhagen, 1670-1671. Gold with enamel and table-cut stones. Total weight 2080 g. Also 2 garnets and 2 sapphires, of which the largest dates back to Frederik I.

    HHR-AWAY, Steve @ the alligator farm, and 28 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Still unbelieveble how much money and effort went into these crowns. People accepted that at that time. Power of the king given by god. Very cool photo Dennis.
