Niels Juel was an admiral who was known for his knowledge of Shipbuilding and his inventions proved beneficial to the Danish Navy during the 17th century. This helped Denmark win the Scanian War during the late 1670’s and after the war Juel was named the president of the admiralty.

The statue at Holmens kanal was placed here in 1873 close to the Church of Holmen where the admiral was buried. The statue is made of bronze and is placed on a marble pedestal leaning on a mortar cannon with his right arm signalling the Battle of Koge Bay to start. The Coat of arms seen near the base of the statue is something to look at and includes military symbols along with the monogram of Christian V.
