The former royal castle Koldinghus celebrates its 750th anniversary. The momentous occasion is marked with the anniversary exhibition The Splendours of Power, which tells 750 years of history through royal jewellery, medals and insignias from the halls of power.
Rank, riches and ideals are expressed in the jewellery worn by the most powerful men and women in society. The jewellery thus tells the story of changing forms of government, power structures, styles and perceptions of body and gender. The anniversary exhibition at Koldinghus tells 750 years of history through a wide selection of jewellery, medals and insignias on loan from, among the others, the Danish, British and Swedish royal houses, Tiffany in New York, Cartier in Paris, Shamballa Jewels, Napoleon Museum Thurgau
in Switzerland, The Royal Danish Collection at Rosenborg, Designmuseum Danmark and other Danish and European museums, companies and private collectors.
