The Amalienborg complex in Copenhagen was originally four externally identical noblemen’s palaces, symmetrically placed around an octagonal palace yard with the equestrian statue of Frederik V, by the French sculptor J.F.J. Saly, in the centre. The large complex was constructed as the centre of Frederiksstaden, the new upper class quarter of Copenhagen, laid out in 1748 as part of the tribute to the House of Oldenborg on the occasion of its 300th anniversary on the Danish throne. Since then, the four palaces have by turns served as residences for the reigning monarch. Today, one of them (Moltke’s or Christian VII’s Palace) is fitted up as a guest palace and mainly used for ceremonial purposes. The others are the residences of the Queen and her husband (Schack’s or Christian IX’s Palace) and the Crown Prince and his wife (Levetzau’s or Christian VIII’s Palace). Once its refurbishment is completed, the Crown Prince and Crown Princess will move to Brockdorff’s Palace (Frederik VIII’s Palace), which was formerly the residence of Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid. With the Yellow Palace, located immediately next to the Amalienborg complex, the palaces also house the various court functions.
