Kronborg Stories Untold
Ordinary and Extraordinary Heroes of our Time. "Kronborg Stories Untold" aims to give voice to the people who rarely make it into history books. Meet the brick layer, the stone mason, the care taker and the cleaning lady - as well as 'the King Who Turned Pirate', 'The Queen Behind Lock And Key' and 'The Slave Who Chose Death Rather Than Kronborg'.
AS IT HAS NEVER BEEN TOLD BEFORE
14 true tales from the people who tend to one of the world’s most famous castles. 14 dramatized tales of destiny from the last 600 years of Danish history. In total: 28 tales of Kronborg Castle – the home of Shakespeare’s mad prince Hamlet and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The bricklayer who faced death and daily sends a loving thought to the people he lost. The queen who found herself in prison while her lover was executed. The event planner who survived a plane crash and found joy in the smaller things in life. The slave who chose death over a lifetime of toiling on the castle grounds.
Meet these destinies and many more from Kronborg’s present and past. These photos and stories offer an insight into Scandinavian history as it´s never been shown before, told by the people working the floor rather than the royalty decorating the walls.
