Boller Castle and the many noble families

Today the castle consists of 4 wings closing around a courtyard. The castle has not always been like this. The different wings and renovations have been added over time. Earlier the castle had towers with spires.  The first mention of the castle is in 1350, but information regarding the ownership of the castle is not available before the 1400s. The castle has changed hands many times through history between different noble families. 


The Banishment of Kirsten Munk

In 1621 Ellen Marsvin buys the castle. She is the mother of Kirsten Munk who was married to the Danish king Christian IV. In 1630 she is put in house arrest in Boller Castle, after her break with the king. She remained at the castle until her death.
