Ten Kings' Clothes


Ten Kings' Clothes is the history of the Danish kings' wardrobes from Christian IV to Frederik VII illustrated by Rosenborg Castle's costume collection, world famous for its age, extent and the garments’ elegance, magnificent fabrics and embroidery.

The royal costume is rarely exhibited, and this richly illustrated book thus offers an exclusive glimpse into the royal wardrobes. Historical garments tell not only their own story of the kings’ coronations and weddings but also aspects of everyday life at court, including the contributions of tailors, embroiderers, valets, portrait artists, castle stewards and laundresses.

Ten Kings' Clothes is not only a history of Denmark, but also the history of one, special family. Her Majesty Queen Margrethe has written the foreword.
