Skokloster Castle is a Swedish Baroque castle built between 1654 and 1676 by Carl Gustaf Wrangel, located on a peninsula of Lake Mälaren between Stockholm and Uppsala. It became a state museum in the 1970;s and displays collections of paintings, furniture, textiles and tableware as well as books and weapons. The King’s hall is the most lavish of all the rooms at Skokloster Castle. It is situated in the middle of the Wrangel apartments, between the rooms of the count and those of the countess. In the Wrangel era the room was called ”The Everyday Dining room”. In the 18th Century, when portraits of kings and queens started filling up the walls, it became known as ”The King’s Hall”.
