Royal Danish Collections


Many Danish kings’ garments are preserved in the Royal Danish Collections at Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen. They are mainly from special, ceremonial occasions. But there is also an unusual little coat which was worn by the young Prince Frederik (1808-1863), who became King Frederik 7th in 1840.
