Meet Christian V’s court

Right now you can see the special exhibition ‘Christian V – God’s Anointed Warrior‘ at Koldinghus.

In the exhibition you can meet actors portraying members of the royal court. For example, you can meet Christian V’s wife, Charlotte Amalie, who will tell you about her life as a queen and what it was like to turn a blind eye to the king’s excesses. Maybe you will meet Christian V’s mother, the bubbly Sophie Amalie, who likes to be the centre of attention and is not shy about stealing the scene. You can also meet the King’s most trusted advisor, Peder Griffenfeld, who will tell you how he went from being the son of a merchant to being a nobleman.

If you are more interested in gossip, seek out the lady-in-waiting. She knows all the secrets and is happy to share her insights into life at the court. Last but not least, of course, you might even run into Christian V himself.

Which characters you can meet at the castle will vary from day to day.
