Stockeboda Farm

- origins from the 17th century and connections to Sixten Sparre & Elvira Madigan

Stockeboda Gård in Skåne dates back to the 17th century. It was originally built as a hunting lodge under Gyllebo Castle. During the 19th century, a change of ownership was celebrated, which unfortunately resulted in the house burning down with only the stone walls remaining.

The estate was sold to the chamberlain and count Carlos Natvidad Adlercreutz who rebuilt the estate and beautified both the estate and the immediate surroundings.

The count's daughter Luitgard married Sixten Sparre and they had both a son and a daughter. During a circus performance in Kristianstad in 1888, Sixten Sparre was captivated by the young linden dancer Hedvig Jensen,

better known as Elvira Madigan.

Sixten Sparre abandoned both family and Stockeboda and ran away together with Elvira Madigan to Denmark where, after a month's flight, they saw no future for their love. Sixten Sparre drew his service revolver and killed

Elvira Madigan and himself. She was 21 and he was 35.

As sheer as the greenery that surrounds Stockeboda, just as fragile is the most beautiful and saddest love story that originates here.
