Edinburgh Zoo's famous knighted king penguin, Sir Nils Olav III, was recently promoted from colonel to the senior military rank of brigadier by members of the Norwegian King's Guard. King penguins from the Edinburgh Zoo have been mascots of the Norwegian Royal Guard since 1972.

On Monday morning, 22 August, His Majesty the King of Norway’s Guard paid a very special visit to RZSS Edinburgh Zoo to bestow a unique honour upon our resident king penguin Sir Nils Olav. Already a knight, the most famous king penguin in the world was given the new title of “Brigadier Sir Nils Olav”.
