"Rosenborg Castle is located in the heart of Copenhagen, and is a historic fortress, royal residence, and museum. The castle, known for its Renaissance architecture, impressive interiors, and extensive collections of royal artefacts, is a popular attraction for both tourists and locals. The Castle was built in the early 17th century by King Christian 4th, and was his favoured residence during his reign. One of the main attractions of Rosenborg Castle is the display of the Danish Crown Jewels. The collection includes crowns, coronets, sceptres, and other regalia used by Danish kings and queens over the centuries. In addition to the Crown Jewels, Rosenborg Castle houses an extensive collection of royal artefacts, including furniture, tapestries, silverware, and other decorative arts. The interiors of the castle have been preserved in their original state, giving visitors a glimpse into royal life during the Renaissance. One of the rooms in the castle is King Christian the 4ths bedroom, where he died on the 28th February 1648. In the room are his blood-stained clothes displayed from the naval battle of Kolberger Heide, 1st July 1644, where he was hit by several cannonball and cannon fragments which cost him his sight on his right eye. Among the main attractions of Rosenborg are the coronation chairs in the Knights’ hall that are guarded by the three silver lions made in 1665.
