Saltensee, Erik Nielsen, – ab..1379, of  Hørningsholm (now Hørsholm),
Søholm and Linde, called himself only E. N., but had a murtinde
(wall peak) in his coat of arms, a family, which in the family books have
the name Saltensee; with what right is unknown. His father was Niels
Eriksen of Linde, his mother was probably called Cathrine Timmesdatter
of Søholm. He is mentioned from 1361, and it seems that he, at king
Valdemar Atterdag's death, belonged to the party which wanted  the
Mecklenburg hertug Albrecth (Henriksøn) elected king, but since the
hertug died soon after, he probably joined king Oluf, whose coronation
charter 1376-77 he has sealed. He was chief  at skanderborg (castle) in
1377 and was together with other Jutland slotshøvedsmænd (castle
chiefs) summoned to meet at the emporial  tribunal, but the next year he
was chief at Søborg (castle) . Shortly after, before 22. March 1380, he
died after having founded a Vikarie  in  Roskilde cathedral and given
soul gifts elsewhere. He left a childless widow, Ingeborg Pedersdatter
Grubbe, who later married hr. Johan Olufsen Bjørn.

Strange Nielsen Strangesen and Ebbe Strangesen.


Dansk Biografisk Lexicon

Strangesen, Strange Nielsen, –o.1489, Hofmester, (chief at court)
from a family, which probably  is the same as the family Bild, was a son
of Hr. Niels Strangesen of Norringtoft (in Hundborg herred) and Ingeborg
Follertsdatter (Dosenrode). He is mentioned the first time  in 1440 and as
a ridder in 1443. In 1444 he is mentioned as the owner of  Nørholm, a
farm, which he achieved with his wife Anne, daughter of Claus Jonsen
(Lange) and the "evil" Fru Gertrud Mogensdatter Munk. From 1449 and
up till 1489 S.N. is mentioned as a rigsråd, and he is often used in public
occassions; he took part at Gulland in 1449 and in Norway 1450 and
was among those, who capitulated at Stockholm in 1464 - and he took
part in a negotiation-meeting with the Swedes in Lübeck 1469,  in an
arbitration award between the king and his creditors in Schleswig and
Holstein in 1470 and at the Kalmar-meetings 1472,73,74 and 76.

He was a vasal at Ørum, in Thy, in 1467-74, and probably already  in
1449, it seems that the vasalry was pawned to  him, and that he kept it
until his death, since his son Ebbe later had it as a pawn. In the battle at
Brunkebjerg 1471 S.N. was the leader of  "Danebrog", although it is not
quite clear if it was the old Danebrog-banner; it seems like he had to give
the banner into the hands of the Swedes.

In 1480-81 he was the hofmester of the elected  king Hans and played
an important role in his management of Funen. After Christian I's death he
became hofmester of king Hans, who was now the ruler. He was in this
position in 1482-83 and still in 1487, possibly with an interruption in 1484,
but there is no information about his work as a hofmester. He did not keep
this job until his death , since he watched Poul Laxmand being his successor
in 1489 - he died between 15 July 1489 and 13 December 1490, and on
this last date fru Anne is  mentioned as his widow.

Strangesen, Ebbe, –1507, Rigsraad, was a son of  Strange Nielsen.
From his parents he inherited a part of Nørholm, and with his wife
Kirstine, who was a daughter of Claus Gertsen Bryske and Grete
Engelbrechtsdatter (Bydelsbak), whom he married 1494, he also
got rights in Kjeldkjær, which he later increased. Furthermore he was
a vasal at Ørum 1497 and still in 1504.

E.S. is mostly known as the killer of Hofmester (chief at court) Poul
Laxmand. Between the two men was a long personal enmity,  which
might have woken up during the failed expedition to Sweden in 1502,
where they both took part. On June 22. in 1502 Poul Laxmand  - who
had returned to  Copenhagen a few days before and had been at the
royal palace to meet and talk with the king - had met E.S. and Bjørn
Andersen Bjørn at Højbro. The two men, who had been drinking
comrades on the travel from Kalmar to Copenhagen, had been eating
and drinking all day, but it was E.S., who attacked Poul Laxmand, while
Bjørn Andersen tried to make peace. He did not draw his sword,  until
Poul Laxmand struck both him and E.S. with his sword.

It was not the king who had instigated the killing. In October was E.S's wife
very concerned about the consequences for her husband, but there seems
to have been  no reason for any concern, since E.S. is mentioned as a rigsråd
in 1502, which he wasn't earlier, and which he might have become as a reward
for the killing. In the following time he is often mentioned as  rigsråd, (like at
Kalmar in 1505), but he never became never a ridder.

He was also a vasal at Hagenskov in 1505, a job, which he kept until his
death in 1507, (latest 7 Febr.) He did not become an old man, some of his
contemporaries considered his early death as a punishment for the killing of
Poul Laxmand . His widow is mentioned in 1517 where she was married
again to Henneke Ahlefeldt Benedictsen.
