Three Queens Fountain

Three Queens Fountain
Location: Charlotte Amalie

The Three Queens fountain was unveiled in 2005 and commemorates three historically important women: Queen Mary, Queen Agnes and Queen Josiah. These women led a successful 1878 insurrection against the Danish Government demanding improved working and living conditions, and better wages. The demonstration is known as the “Fireburn”. The women wear clothing typical of the mid-1800’s, long dresses, with a long sleeved blouse and an apron. They carry in their hands: a lantern, a harvesting tool and flambeaux (torch). The sculpture was made by American artist Richard Hallier.
