Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen

Amalienborg Palace

http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q...alaces/org.jpg

Amalienborg Palace is the winter residence of the Danish monarch.
The Palace consists of four palaces planned around an octagonal courtyard, in the centre which stands an equestrian statue of Frederik V (founder of Amalienborg Palace).
The Palace was constructed on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the coronation of the first King of the House of Oldenborg, Christian I. The four palaces were designed by Nicolai Eigtved, the court architect.
The four palaces are:
Christian VII's Palace (originally called Moltke's Palace)
Christian VIII's Palace (originally known as Levetzau's Palace)
Frederik VIII's Palace (originally known as Brockdorff's Palace)
Christian IX's Palace (originally known as Schack's Palace)

Thank you too Alexandria. I love to see pictures like this. They say so much more about royal than anything else ever can. Look at the majestic staircase, the wonderful parquet floors, the life size portrait of CP Frederick (is that narcissistic or does that term not apply to royals?), and the sheer size of the rooms. Wonderful.

He has a perfect private home. It's really nice, I mean it doesn't need to be that full of things "gold" just to look elegant though.

Amalienborg Palace is the home of Queen Margrethe II and the Prince Henrik.
Amalienborg Palace is a major piece of Danish architecture and commonly regarded as the finest Danish example of rococo architecture. It comprises four palaces, all of which are identical from the outside, but different inside.

It was built in commemoration of the Oldenburg royal family's 300-year reign in 1749. From the outset, it was conceived as town mansions for four noblemen and their families. The Palace consists of Christian VII's Mansion, Christian VIII's Mansion, Frederik VIII's Mansion and Christian IX's Mansion. The mansions surround an octagonal area, with Saly's equestrian statue of Frederik V in the middle. The royal family resides at Christian IX's Mansion

"Amalienborg Palace"

I heard 4 buildings make up the complex known as "Amalienborg Palace". And what is it, 2 or 3 of these buildings are separate palaces? and 1 or 2 are used for government functions?



Too bad there aren't aerial shots of the other palaces, like there is for Schackenborg (and one or two others)?

Amalienborg Palaces

Amalienborg is the monarch’s winter residence. It consists of four palaces set around a central octagon in the centre of which is the equestrian statue of Frederik V, the founder of both Amalienborg and the surrounding suburb of Frederiksstaden.

The palaces were originally constructed at the request of King Frederik V as part of the celebrations for the 300th anniversary of the coronation of Christian I, which marked the beginning of the Oldenborg dynasty. The plots for the four palaces were given free of charge to four prominent and wealthy noblemen on condition they agreed to build identical palaces, to the precise specifications and designs of the Royal Architect Nicolai Eigtved.

Amalienborg became the residence of the Royal Family after Christiansborg Castle burnt to the ground on the night of 26 February 1794. Within a few days, however, the King acquired both the Moltke and Schack Palaces. Amalienborg has been the Royal Residence ever since and all monarchs have lived in one or other of the four palaces.

Today the palaces are occupied as follows:

Christian VII’s Palace: Palace used by HM The Queen for official functions.
Christian VIII’s Palace: Residence of HRH The Crown Prince. The ground floor houses the Amalienborg Museum, which is part of The Royal Danish Collection.
Frederik VIII’s Palace: Former residence of HM Queen Ingrid who died in 2000.
Christian IX’s Palace: Residence of HM The Queen and HRH the Prince Consort.

So the Royal couple will move into Amalienborg once it has been restored thus leaving Fredensborg as a permanent residence or did you mean that they wil move in when Frederik becomes King?

I expect it will be so that they do as Queen Margrethe does, use the Amalienborg flat for parts of the year, and then live at Fredensborg and other castles for some of the year.

Frederik and Mary are moving to Amalienborg Castle as their residence. But now comes alarming reports that the building is in a very bad shape and needs restaurations for some 60 millions danish crowns acording to architects. Minister of finance is applying for the money needed from the Parliament

Interesting. What is considered "very bad shape" for living to Fredrik and Mary is probably more than suitable for any normal person. It always makes me wonder whether or not all these elaborate and expensive "renovations" are really necessary, and worth the taxpayers' money.

The Swedish king wants millions of Swedish crowns to renovate his residence, so that he can have a "better view."

According to the article the very foundation of the home is in a terrible state. Royalty or commoner, no one should live in a place that has the extensive damage that the palace has.

But being royalty of course they can live in a luxurious place like their current residence at Chancellory House.

Yes, no one really should be allowed to live under such conditions, but the issue is that if they decide to renovate the palace, it will most likely come from taxpayers. Whereas a commoner would have to pay from their own pocket. However they have other beautiful estates where they can go live for now.

Amalienborg is owned by the Danish state and is only at the disposal of the royal family who is representing the state.
(I believe the same goes for the Swedish castle/royal family.)

Therefore it's of course the Danish state (=the Danish taxpayers) who has to pay for the restauraton.
And that is why the Minister of Finance is applying for the money needed from the Parliament and not the Queen.:)

This beautiful castle is cultural heritage and I think it's a shame they waited with the restauration until the fundament is in a terrible state.

Btw, this information is not new.
I read exactly the same thing around the time of the wedding, almost two years ago now.
(F&M moving into the Chancellory House until the restauration is finished...)
I wonder why they waisted another two years.
