Koldinghus is a royal castle founded in the 13th century situated in Southern Jutland, Denmark.
For many years it was partly a ruin as mercenaries of a Napolitarian army burned it by mistake a cold winter night in early 1808. The renovation from our time is unique as it allows you to see the raw murals from the damage while it gives room to various historical exhibitions.
The List of Kings
We have had kings for more than a thousand years, and Jim Lyngvild, an artist and designer, got the idea to illustrate the royals as models in imagined dresses and costumes he has designed. Jim Lyngvild has used historical material and paintings to get inspiration for his work. Some of his gowns are on display in all their splendour. The rest of them are made as photo models framed and displayed chronologically. His beauty ideals are matching our present time which gives the pictures a realistic and robust appeal.
A historical exhibition with a seldom view into former times and modern beauty ideals.
