"New <noun>" = "<noun> of new"?


Good evening,


My question is the following:



Is "New <noun to adjectivate>" equal or equivalent in any way to "<same noun> of new"?


Is it by any chance that the particle "of new" after the noun could be a more formal, maybe unusual but correct equivalent to "new" before that same noun? Does this form of ajectivation even exist? Because I believe I have seen this form of adjectivation (could have been in a whole different context or even something entirely different) written somewhere. If I am not mistaken tha latter form seems to be one adequate to be used in long read poetry, novels, and the such.


An example follows:

[Before] "A new kingdom rises today."



[After] "A kingdom of new rises today."

So, are these two sentences correct? If not, are there any similar forms to this?


Thank you.
