ROSENBORG - Christian IV And His Summer Residence
A film by Nils Vest - Dur.. 45 min.
Rosenborg - the summer residence of Christian IV - contains unique memories of one of Denmark’s most colourful kings.
Here, a dramatic saga unfolds based upon ‘The Big House In The Garden’ - built as a private home over several periods from 1606-34.
Christian IV set out as one of Europe's wealthiest rulers and ended 60 years later almost ruined, having lost not only territories, but also several children as well as the greatest yet most unfortunate love of his life, Kirsten Munk.
However, he was also a king who loved music, painting and architecture and he left behind him a beautiful series of buildings and towns in Scandinavia.
The film is screened at the Rosenborg Castle non stop every hour in day time till August 19, in two cinemas (Danish and English). It is also sold on DVD in the Museum Shop, both in Danish and English language versions (PAL and NTSC)
