Exploring the Royal Palace
The public areas of the Royal Palace allow visitors to walk through grand rooms of sumptuous furnishings and priceless works of art and craftsmanship. The Hall of State and the Royal Chapel are both characterized by their magnificent lavish decor and Gustav Ill’s Museum of Antiquities contains ancient marble sculptures from the king’s journey to Italy. The palace also houses the Treasury with the State regalia; the new Tre Kronor Museum, which depicts the palace before the 1697 fire; and the Livrustkammaren (seep52).
White Sea serves as a drawing room. Gustav Ill’s State Bedchamber, where the king died after being shot at the Opera House in 1792 (p40-41), is the height of Gustavian elegance. Along with Queen Sofia Magdalena’s State Bedchamber, it was designed by the architect Jean Eric Rehn. The lintels on the doors to the Don Quixote Room, named after the theme of its tapestries, were made by Francois Boucher and are among the most treasured pieces.
