At Rosenborg you can amongst other things see Christian IV and Christian V’s Orders of the Elephant, where a white elephant adorns the blue sash. The Order of the Elephant is the highest order in Denmark. It comes from a royal order founded by Christian I around 1460 with the Virgin Mary as its symbol. Around 1560 Frederik II introduced the elephant carrying a tower, which was also part of the collar of the original order. The exotic animal has over time been identified with many positive qualities such as cleanliness, wisdom, and moderation. The Order of the Elephant is almost only given to members of the royal family and foreign heads of state.
