Queens of power
Very few queens are found in history books and are usually not portrayed as the powerful and influential women they were. With the exhibition 'Queens of power' The Danish Castle Center brings forward seven powerful queens and their stories and show why these queens are part of the history. The city of Vordingborg is widely known as the city of kings, however with the current exhibition 'Queens of power', The Danish Castle Center address the history of the queens and their role in battles of power and the castle.
Experience the current exhibition 'Queens of power' on power, murder, intrigues and alliances presented in collaboration with Jim Lyngvild.
'We have seen the beautiful paintings and portraits of the medieval queens. But who were they and what power did they have? With this exhibition we focus on the great influence and power the queens actually had. They were not just beautiful accessories to their kings, the queens also had great power and made decisions that also gave them blood on their hands,' says museummanager Keld Møller Hansen.
