Frederik IV's Corridor
This corridor is situated on the first floor and connects the central room, The Rose, with the northern end of the Palace. The walls in the corridor are covered with gilt leather tapestries from Frederiksberg Palace.
Frederik IV's corridor contains, as the name suggests, mainly exhibits and paintings which date from the time of Frederik IV, among them mementos from the Great Nordic War, 1709-1720, Denmark's last great war with Sweden. Several items have connections to the Swedish King of the time, Charles XII, or his commander, Magnus Stenbock, who became a Danish prisoner of war during the conflict. Also the Russian Czar, Peter the Great, another of the great players of the Great Nordic War, is represented by several items.
