About Agda Persdotter (Charitas)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (25 May 2008):

AGDA PERSDOTTER or Agda i Porten, (d. after 1565), was a Swedish woman, main royal mistress of King Eric XIV of Sweden during his time as a Crown Prince and during the first years of his reign 1560-1565.

Biography

Agda Persdotter is believed to have been the daughter of the wealthy merchant Peder Klementsson, who lived by St Nicolai port in Stockholm and was known as Pher i porten, though her parentage has not been confirmed. She was described as a very beautiful woman and was called Charitas. She became the mistress of Eric during his time as a crown prince and is the first of his recorded mistresses, was a center of his court at Kalmar Castle 1558, where a chamber, "Agdas kammare", ("Agda's chamber") is still named after her, and their relationship continued after he became king in 1560.

In 1561, she was married to the nobleman Joakim Fleming and given the estate Eknaholm outside Växjö, which had belonged to a monastery, and the relationship ended and continued after she became a widow in 1563. The relationship was not exclusive, as Eric had a large number of other mistresses; the period 1561-65, Anna Larsdotter, Karin Jacobsdotter, Karin Pedersdotter, Sigrid Nilsdotter, Doredi Valentinsdotter and the more anonymous Britta and Ingrid was all listed as the King's mistresses, but Agda was his main mistress. The position of these women was only half official.

She had several daughters with Eric and one daughter with Joakim Fleming, Anna, (born 1562). In 1561, the custody of her children was given to the king's sister, Princess Cecilia of Sweden, because: "I know she is not capable of raising them in good discipline and other things". When Cecilia left the country in 1564, the care, as well as the care of the other children of Eric, was given to Princess Elizabeth of Sweden; one of Elizabeth's servants, Karin Månsdotter, took care of Virginia. In 1565, Karin became the one and only mistress of Eric and replaced both Agda and all the others. Agda remarried Christoffer Olsson Stråle av Sjöared, sheriff of Stegeborg.

--------------------

Agda En utmärkt vacker borgarflicka, som på sin tid gjorde mycket buller, eller snarare gaf

anledning till mycket prat. Hon var dotter till en af de rikaste krämare i Stockholm, den så

kallade Pehr i Porten, emedan han hade sin handelsbod i det långa hvalf, som från nuvarande Benikebrinken i Stockholm gick ned till östra stadsporten, eller från Östra Långgatan och ner till sjön.

– Agda fängslade Erik XIV, då kronprins, och förde med honom en så förtrolig sammanlefnad, att hon skänkte honom trenne döttrar, Lucretia, som dog helt späd, samt Virginia och Constantia, hvilka af deras höge fader erkändes, upptogos till hofvet, sedan han blef konung, uppfostrades der, såsom prinsessor, och blefvo gifta med

ganska ansedde män. – Det var dock i Eriks aldraförsta ungdom, som han älskade Agda Pehrsdotter, och innan han lärde känna den oförlikneliga Catharina, den han sedan var obrottsligt trogen.

– Agda blef, emot konungens vilja, besynnerligt nog, oaktadt sitt så mycket fläckade namn, sedermera gift (1561) med konung Erik XIV:s kammarjunkare Joachim Fleming. I detta gifte hade hon en dotter, Anna, som blef gift med hertig Carls kammarjunkare Hieronymus von Birchholtz

Agda Persdotter ("Agda i porten"), med okända födelse- och dödsår, var Erik XIV:s frilla under Kalmartiden. Hon har uppgivits vara dotter till rådmannen Peder Klemetsson i S:t Nicolai port (i Stockholm), en uppgift som dock hittills har varit omöjlig att verifiera. Agda kallades "Charitas" för sin skönhets skull. Hon ersattes som kungens favorit 1564-65 (då hade hon varit gift sedan år 1561) av Karin Månsdotter. Agda gifte sig 1561 med kammarjunkaren Joachim Fleming (troligen död 1563). Med honom hade hon en dotter Anna (född 1562)

Agda Persdotter hade åtminstone två döttrar med kungen, Virginia och Constantia:

   * Virginia Eriksdotter (1559-1633), gift med landshövdingen Håkan Knutsson (Hand).
   * Constantia Eriksdotter (1560-1649), gift med häradshövdingen Henrik Frankelin (död 1610), känd för sina långa resor i östra Europa.

En tredje utomäktenskaplig dotter till Erik XIV, Lucretia (född 1564), har förmodats vara dotter till Agda, men det finns inga belägg för detta. Hon uppges i en källa ha varit gift med en Daniel Zelow.
