The Pompeian Chamber

The Pompeian Chamber was used as a bedroom by Hereditary Prince Frederik and by both of Christian VIII’s wives, Princess Charlotte Frederikke and Queen Caroline Amalie.

The room gained its current decoration as a result of Prince Christian (VIII) and Princess Caroline Amalie’s travels in Italy, on which they saw the excavations of Pompeii. On the background of this the couple in 1836 had the decorative painters G.C. Hilker, H. Eddelien, and C. Købke decorate the bedroom in Pompeian style, which became a widespread stylistic phenomenon in Europe.
