Royal Castle In Sweden On Sale

Fogelvik Castle

Become the owner of a real royal castle – Fogelvik, an amazing castle in Sweden! This castle was the home of Carl Knutsson Bonde (who was king, three times during the 1400s), and passed through his heirs, the Bonde, Gyllenstierna, Horn, Thott, Posse and other clans, to the current owners (the castle is separated from the rest of the manor) who, in 1995, saved the castle and grounds for posterity and restored Fogelvik in to its former grandeur.
