11 Portal Relief on Terrace Wing at Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, Denmark

This splendid relief forms the top of the Terrace Wing portal which leads from the courtyard and the Neptune Fountain towards the Royal Wing of the Frederiksborg Castle. In the center is the monogram C4 which stands for Christian IV, the King of Denmark and Norway. On the left is his statue and opposite it is Anne Catherine of Brandenburg who was his queen from 1597 until 1612. Also notice the two unicorns around the coat of arms. Their significance is that, according to legend, the Throne Chair of Denmark is constructed from the horn of unicorns.
