The Arendelle Chapel is one of many places in Arendelle. it was here where Elsa was officially crowned queen of Arendelle.


The chapel is within the castle walls. It is near the courtyard and to the left while entering, thus making the chapel near the south side of the castle.

Role in Frozen

In the chapel, the Bishop of Arendelle places the crown on Elsa's head as Anna watches the coronation. He then presents the scepter and orb on a pillow. As Elsa moves to pick them up, the bishop reminds her that she has to remove the gloves she always wears. Elsa then faces the people in the pews and he formally speaks in Old Norse, ordaining Elsa as Queen. He barely finishes before Elsa hastily replaces the scepter and orb, shoving on the gloves. She turns again towards the people who are standing and applauding in honor of the new Queen.


The Norwegian village of Balestrand provided inspiration for this chapel. The chapel is based on the "dragonstil" style of architecture and Norwegian stave churches. It is about 8 people high with 11 pews on each side. There are 14 posts and many windows along its side.


  • When Elsa is holding the scepter and orb, the bishop proclaims: "Sem hón heldr inum helgum eignum ok krýnd í þessum helga stað ek té fram fyrir yðr…" In English this means: "As she holds the holy properties, and is crowned in this holy place, I present to you… Queen Elsa of Arendelle".
    • In the script, it reads: "Sehm hon HELL-drr IN-um HELL-gum AYG-num ok krund ee THES-um HELL- gah STAHTH, ehk teh frahm FUR-ear U- thear..."
  • Elsa was required to remove her gloves to fully show she was ready to embrace the responsibilities of a ruler.
  • Traditionally, orbs used in coronation ceremonies symbolized the world, with the act of the monarch holding the orb representing his or her dominion over the lands.
  • The scepter has long been a symbol of power and authority.
