Perhaps that's the theme of this particular room?

I can imagine there being an English room and a Chinese room as well.

I'd say that the full scale portrait of Nicolai II is a dead giveaway to the rooms name.

Edit - Sorry for that bitchy comment. I shouldn't have posted before I'd had my first cup of coffee

And today another room from the Palace:

"The little baroque-style room at Fredensborg Castle is walled with a red-striped silk blanket, like H.M. The queen himself has chosen. The queen has taken inspiration from the small dining room from Frederik's 4th bedroom at Rosenborg Castle. On the wall behind the dining table, the painting "The German Emperor VI's Table", painted by Johann Salomon Wahl, was painted around 1741. The picture has been hanging at Fredensborg Castle since 1872, but had been hidden for many years when it was in poor condition. In connection with Queen's 75th birthday, Her Majesty gave her a new restoration, and in 2016 it came to hang again. "

I seem to remember from tv that this was The Queen and her husband's private dining room with the TV room just next door.

No worries I phrased it wrong myself .

What I meant was had it a connection to the Romanovs that perhaps one of them had stayed in that room.

Today going to Russian room:

"This week, the royal house's Instagram brings pictures of Fredensborg Slot's many wallpapers, and today the textured Russian bathroom is seen. The wallpaper is chosen to match the room's 19th century Russian-style furniture in a colorful farm style. "

It makes sense to have a "Russian bedroom" in a palace that belongs to the family of the Russian empress Dagmar/Maria Feodorovna - Nicholas II. was a grandson of Christian IX. of Denmark. Dagmar of denmark often returned to her home country before she took up permanent residence near Copenhagen and died there in 1928.

From: https://www.homeforexchange.com/list...emperors-villa


History of the Emperor's Villa at Fredensborg
In 1885 Tzar Alexander III announced that he would buy a house in Fredensborg. His wife Maria Fjodorovnas (Dagmar to the Danes) parents King Christian the 9th & Queen Louise lived at the castle in Fredensborg. The russian imperial family would visit almost every summer and eventually they bought a house of their own. They rebuild the house for several years, turned it in to what you get today. They called it their "miniature Gatchina". In 1892, Alexander gave Dagmar a Farbegé-egg with a picture of their new home.
Their son (the last tzar) Nikolai II carved his name in one of the windows in the house. The glass is still there.
Today it's called the Emperor's Villa.
In 1894 Alexander died, leaving the house uninhabited until, their daughter Granddutchess Olga sold the house in 1928.



So pre-1885, the Russian Imperial Couple used to stay at Fredensborg Castle with the empress' parents, so I guess they then slept in the "Russian bedroom".

Today the Hardsorff Hall:

"The Harsdorff Hall at Fredensborg Castle is decorated with a wallpaper from 1776, where the painter Mandelberg has made artistic paintings of niches with vases.
The room is named after the architect C.F. Harsdorff, who in the 1770s, among others, was behind a rebuilding and expansion of the original Fredensborg Castle, which was completed in 1722."

And the last wallpaper at Fredensborg Castle

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bk4gocQA...danskekongehus

Another Summer video from Fredensborg:

"The first live pictures of the Danish royal family are from these summer days in the late 1800s. Here it was a recurring tradition that King Christian and Queen Louise with their children, in-law children and grandchildren at Fredensborg Castle for the so-called "Peace Day Days"

Let's have a look at the inside of Fredensborg, based on an article in Billed Bladet #29, 2019.
Written by Trine Larsen.

The whole article is based on a new book about Fredenborg.
It's called: Fredenborg Slot.
The author is J Henriette Linnemann.
She covers not only the history of Fredensborg since 1722, but also the rooms.
The furnishing, decorations, the paintings, who was behind the decor and what the various rooms a used for.
The 408 page hardcover book is published by Lindhart and Ringhof. (Who is behind a number of other books about the DRF.)
You can read more here, should you be interested in additional details: https://www.bog-ide.dk/produkt/19852...edensborg-slot


But let us look at what is written in that book, based on photo by photo in the BB article.
https://app.box.com/s/7mw4gwhsen5jjl0uturbal1222kt3g5f
QMII's office.
She is using a rooco-bureau as desk and underneath is a dog-basket.
QMII says: "I'm not an orderly person, so I shall not use a room long, before you can tell I've been here."

https://app.box.com/s/jonmerod4kmwx661mfym9sbmgf6y8hwp
This is the Yellow Salon looking towards the Garden Hall.
Here Thomas Kluge's painting of the DRF has found a place.

https://app.box.com/s/qj51khbao6bcfbvcnz3hs24pkjajnrzr
Top:
PH's office. On the couch is a pillow with the handprints of Vincent and Josephine. From 2015, as far as I can tell.
The sausage shaped pillows, complete with monogram, are "invented" by PH. They are made from old ties. - I could easily think of a number of royal men who could benefit from wearing a tie or two from these pillows.

Bottom:
QMII's office.
When QMII took over the panels where white, but they have now been restored to the original color, albeit in a stronger hue than the original a little more subdued hue.
QMII calls her office: "A cozy box."

https://app.box.com/s/31mehxvq0pdlulp32bjkhnaq87cq9f3e
PH's office than has been kept as it was, while he was still around. - The BB article does not omit to point out a couple of BB-publications on the table...

https://app.box.com/s/o7zrqsz18lp315drrgiqujenu97ns3un
Large photo:
This is the small baroque dining room. Previously it was here Frederik and Joachim dined.
Both when they moved away from home, the room was in 2005-2006 restored to it's original look. And here the Regent Couple used to have lunch.
And today this is where QMII have lunch with her LiW and adjutants, who are on watch that day.

Small photo:
The spectacular garden-hall is as original. Frederik IX enjoyed sitting here enjoying the room, from which there is a great view over the park, all the way down to the lake at the far end.
QMII is also fond of sitting there.
