PostSubject: Nyköpings Myths~   20th September 2008, 15:47

I have two, about out castle in sweden, nyköping.
:image


First Myth:
The girl with dim light, is it called. There is a girl who vander around and looking for someone. She is looking and looking but can not find what she is looking for. She will only appear at a particular time. Some also say that she sometimes has blood on her clothes, and is crying.
I have never seen her myself, but I wish I could. BUT I have seen someone walking around, with a candle, but I have very bad eyes so I couldn't see who it was, It might be here.
She is said to be from the time when the king lived at the castle (mediaeval time).

Second Myth:
This one is about the brothers in the dungeon. This is the main Local Urban in nyköping, and my fave! X3 The story begin at The Nyköping banquet, when king Birger of Sweden had a Christmas celebration (December 11, 1317) at the Nyköping Castle. Among the guests were his two brothers Duke Valdermar and Duke Erik, who later that night were imprisoned and starved to death in the dungeon in Nyköpings Castle. Now the myth goes like this: if you stay long enought, you can hear the brothers trying to digg their way out of the dungeon, crying and cursing. You can actually go down and look in the dungeon, and it's really REALLY deep. I am to scared to go down there. I feel really sorry for Erik and Valdermar, after all . they were Birgers brothers. . (mediaeval time).

I know that theses suck, Nyköping is a really old town, There have to be more then 2 myth! =_=

I've never visit any castle before. =D you're so lucky, Sandera. Got castle in your country is a great thing.

O.o May I ask why Valdermar and Erik get imprisoned that time? O_O And and, they are Dukes. Did they do something opposing the king?

Don't you have a castle? o_o

I don't really remember, I think it's because they wanted the thron of sweden. So they tried to kill the king I think . . I don't remember ._.
Read this, maybe there is some info in it *lazy at the moment*

Prelude
The dukes and brothers, Valdemar and Eric had earlier staged a coup against king Birger (Håtuna games). After the intervention of the Danish and Norwegian kings a settlement was reached in 1310 and Sweden was divided among the brothers into three sovereign states.

The Banquet
Seven years later the dukes Valdemar and Eric were invited as a sign of reconciliation to celebrate Christmas with King Birger and Queen Märta at Nyköping Castle. The banquet that was to go to history was held on the night between December 10 and 11, 1317. The dukes' retinues were lodged not in the castle, but in the town of Nyköping, the pretext being lack of space. After both dukes had retired to bed, the king's drost Brunke (Johan von Brunkow) arrived with a company of crossbowmen and manacled them. In the following morning, the dukes' retinue was also apprehended. King Birger himself is said to have been present, reminding them of the Håtuna Games:

Mynnes jder nakot aff hatwna leek fulgörla mynnes han mik
(Remember ye aught of the Håtuna Games? I remember them clearly)

The dukes imprisoned
The dukes were imprisoned in the castle's dungeon. However King Birger had misjudged the political situation in the country. A rebellion broke out in 1318 against his rule and he was forced to flee to Gotland from whence he soon had to continue his flight to Denmark. The dukes knew that no mercy would be forthcoming from Birger, so they had their testaments drawn up after five weeks in the dungeon. It was dated January 18, 1318 and is preserved to this day. One of the executors was Birger Persson. Soon thereafter both died in the dungeon, according to tradition by drawn-out starvation.

Aftermath
The three year old son of Duke Eric, Magnus was elected King in 1319 by the Stone of Mora in Uppland. King Birger's son Magnus resisted forces that tried to take the Castle of Nyköping but was defeated and fled with the drost Brunke. They lost a sea action, and were captured and executed in 1320. The drost Brunke was executed in Stockholm on the sandy ridge that has since been known as Brunkeberg. The deposed king Birger died 1321 in exile in Denmark.
Thus remained only the old queen mother Helvig of Holstein (spouse of Magnus Ladulås), the exiled Queen Märta, and the young king Magnus Eriksson, son of the dead Duke Eric.
