"Ribe Cathedral" or "Our Lady Maria Cathedral" (Danish: "Ribe Domkirke or Vor Frue Maria Domkirke"), was founded in the Viking Era as the first Christian church in Denmark by Ansgar, a missionary monk from Hamburg, under permission of the pagan King Horik I. The film shows the inauguration after its restoration was finished in 1904 by the architects H.C. Amberg and Jacob Helms. The film shows the Royal Family of Denmark exiting the Church as they were the guests of honor.

In many other processions of where the royals are present, their wagon can only be glimpsed, but in this, you can see all the royals exiting the Church. It's also good that this was captured from two angels, it makes more of a documentation in that way and captures the scope and more of the building. Other than that, it is a pretty standard quality movie of the time.
