Anund Jonsson (lion face)

Knight, Riksråd Anund Jonsson (lion's face), born at the latest in the 1340s, d 1397 (buried in Vadstena monastery). Son of the knight Jon Henningsson; who in 1346 was gm Ingeborg Anundsdotter (Sture). Mentioned as knight 1368, national council 1377-96 and lawman on Öland; 1381-94.

Married 1) to Ramborg Israelsdotter (two downward wings), daughter of teammate Israel Birgersson and formerly GM Filip. Nilsson; she was dead in 1384 and is buried in Vadstena Monastery; 2) with Agneta Karlsdotter (Nipertz), according to the tombstone in the same monastery.

A. belonged to a Småland family, which carried a lion's face in the weapon, ie a lion's head facing the spectator; the same heraldic image was also used by the likewise Smaland family, to which the knight Bengt Niklisson(see this one) is counted, but the friendship between them has so far not been established with certainty. A. was the grandson of Mr. Henning Ödgislesson, who is mentioned in 1303, was knight in 1313, one of the pledges, when King Birger pledged his possessions in Småland and Visingsö to the king this year. Erik of Denmark, King Magnus Eriksson's Council 1321 and Swedish envoy at the so-called Nöteborgs Peace 1323. A's father Jon. Henningsson is mentioned as gunner in 1333 and knight in 1343; he appears to have owned Ringvidahult, probably nv. Ringhult in Handbörds hearth in Småland, where he owned farms in the lower Ämådalen. He seems to have played no political role. His and Ingeborg Anundsdotter's perhaps only child was A., who owned a "paternity farm" in Virstad in Högsby parish, Handbörds hearth, which farm he and his niece Mrs. Botilda, widow of Johan Kettilsson (Puke) Aug 5 1379, gave as a gift of soul to Vadstena monastery, evidently as compensation for her maintenance there. It is obvious that the monastery, like other great men of the time, kept him warm. He thus gave a sum of money to the monastery in 1381, and in 1384, when he there designated his and his relatives' burial ground, according to his wife, in his lifetime, he expressed to the monastery the goods which she received in the morning gift from her former husband Filip Nilsson, namely Tuna, Ösåker and Asker in the Näs parish, Brohundra herad. He has also sealed some still preserved gift and mortgage letters to the monastery, usually with Erengisle Sunesson (boat) and Bo Jonsson (grip), both Småland earth magnates and leading politicians, as well as he buried in the monastery. In politics, A. first appears as one of the gentlemen, who, on King Albrekts' side, took part in the Stagnation Treaty in 1371, which is why it appears that A. during the 1360s between Albrekt of Mecklenburg and deposed King Magnus Eriksson and his son Håkan stood on the first of these, where Bo Jonsson was also. Albeit admittedly had to retain the Swedish crown, but at its expense in favor of the Swedish aristocracy, in Bo Jonsson's person more and more embodied position of power. The close ties that A. seems to have had with both Erengisle Sunesson and Bo Jonsson suggest his connection to their politics. Of course, like they have been on Queen Margaret's side in the battle against Albrekt, and 24 Oct. In 1389, he took part in the Council's request for a deed for her thanks to "the great grace, comfort and help" she had proved to the kingdom in its great distress, war and sacrifice, which one hoped for with her grace and help "a good and good one will ever take". A. participated on Margaret's side in the treaty mediated by the envoy of the German Order and his cities, 1395, between her and King Albrekt, concerning his release and the peace between them. Shortly before his death, A. as King Eriks of Pomerania and the Kingdom Council in Sweden participated in the agreement, which since Erik was hailed as king, was concluded in Nyköping on 20 September. 1396 regarding the country's governing board and related Union issues. - A son of A., Israel, probably his only one, died at a young age and is buried with his parents in Vadstena Monastery Church; a daughter Kristina was married to the knight Anund Sture in 1425. took part in Margaret's side in the treaty mediated by the envoy of the German Order and his cities of 1395 between her and King Albrekt regarding his release and the peace between them.

SETTINGS FROM THE CULTURAL GEOGRAPHICAL INSTITUTION June 2015, A lost Tuna

A study of the village of Tuna on the Lennartsnäh peninsula, by Olle Södergren

Kloster donation 1384


A couple of generations later, we find a letter that gives us a clearer picture of the ownership conditions on the Lennartsnäshalvön during the 14th century. It can be seen here that the dragon Asbjörn Sixtensson (Sparre of Tofta) and his heirs had gathered all the eastern part of the peninsula. In this gift letter, knight Anund Jonsson (Lion's Face) clarified that he fulfilled his deceased wife Ramborg Israel's daughter's (by Finstaätten) desire to donate the assets she received in the morning gift in her previous marriage to Vadstena monastery. This transaction included Tuna, Öråker and Asker, which probably means the entire eastern part of the peninsula. However, there is no indication of whether other settlements existed in the southeastern parts of the peninsula. Ramborg's former husband Filip Nilsson (Sparre of Tofta) was the son of Nils Abjörsson, and grandchild of the murderer Asbjörn Sixtensson (Sparre of Tofta). The family had thereby acquired significant assets in the area during the 14th century. The properties were inherited by Filip Nilsson's wife Ramborg after his passing, and then on to her new husband Anund who completed her wish for the monastery donation. (SDHK-no: 12757) Here I want to link back to the original acquisition of the farm in Tuna 1307, where the dukes Erik and Valdemar donated the goods to their dragon Asbjörn Sixtensson (Sparre of Tofta). This transaction took place in the middle of the civil war called the Håtunaleken, where Erik, supported by Valdemar, sought to seize power from his younger brother King Birger Magnusson, and shortly thereafter he beheaded his guardian Torgils Knutsson. The dukes were allies with Norway while King Birger was allied with Denmark. In 1307, King Birger was imprisoned while the Duke brothers in January managed to negotiate a truce that lasted until December of the same year (Wadbring 2008). My interpretation is that the donation of Tuna to Asbjörn Sixtensson touched on the crown or the imprisoned king's property, which the duke brothers during the ceasefire suited to hand out to their allies, as a reward for their support. In another letter it appears that the dukes had donated another property in the parish a month earlier, namely Aspvik's mill a few kilometers from Tuna, which the king had used for his own use (DS 1548) according to the gift letter. I mean that it is possible and likely that the circumstances of Sixtensson's acquisition of Tuna are something that has remained in the memory of men and beyond. Possibly this has stigmatized the possession of the property and contributed to Ramborg Israel's daughter's desire to donate the property to the monastery Big eggs and possible medieval economy The ownership of the peninsula during the 13th century is unclear and I have found few clues that can say anything about the agriculture organization, but I believe that there can nevertheless be a basis for an interpretation. The supposed family group consisting of B. Matsson, Rörik Mattsson, Agnes Matsdotter and Jacob Agnesson owned properties both in Asker and Tuna at the end of the 13th century. Ashtrays are described with the term "mansione", while Asbjörn's gift items in Tuna are described with "curiam", both of which could indicate a large-scale farm operation with a subordinate home. However, this does not necessarily have to be the case. It can nevertheless be the name of a larger farm, without saying anything about the form of organization (see Hansson 2001 p.39). I want to make the interpretation with caution that Asker is the basis for the family group with the father Mats, who then put some of the homeowners in Tuna to their farm under the main farm in Asker. Based on my account of the background for Asbjörn's donated farm, I mean that it probably did not belong to the family from Asker, but was a crown goods at the time of the donation. Rörik Mattsson signed up to Tuna 1298 and the family from Asker thus also had a physical presence in the village, even when the time for the acquisition of this property is unclear. If the presumed crown goods in Tuna had conducted large-scale farming at the time of the acquisition, I mean that it would seem unlikely that one would have cut off parts of the goods for the benefit of an adjacent manor. I mean that this could be interpreted as an indication of farm operations in Tuna at the time of the Asker-based family acquisition. However, this does not preclude the fact that there has previously been a centralized operation of agriculture in the village under a main farm. The place name Tuna, like the name "curiam", can be said to support such an interpretation. Previous research has shown that it is possible to see a change in the organization of agriculture during the 13th century, where former large farms in some cases completely switched to rural farming and gave rise to the formation of villages. Villages that are later under single owners are said to be an indicator of previous economies of scale. (Berg 2003 p.94). At the end of the 14th century, Asbjörn Sixtensson's descendants owned the entire eastern peninsula. Whether or not the acquisition of Asker and other parts of these coherent major properties took place shortly after his entry into the village, or if it was an extended process is unclear. On the other hand, this can be assumed to have had significant consequences for the organization of farm operations. I understand that this change of ownership represents a shift between what can be called a low-resident to a high-resident. This is a term that has been coined in the past for various status layers within the salvation, where the low-salvation had a tangible local anchorage and presence in the village, and no alternative main yard. The High Redeemer, on the other hand, had many other possessions, and thus did not have the same presence or anchorage in the local countryside, nor his identity attached to the property in the same way. (Hansson 2001 p.46) I mean that the family from Asker seems to have been based in the village, and thus probably drove agriculture on their own under the family farm in Asker. Furthermore, I mean that it is likely that Asbjörn Sixtensson with descendants had a much more modest presence, and relied on passive taxation of independent countrymen. Asbjörn Sixtensson's original donation from the duke brothers shows that in addition to the farm in Tuna he also received a number of other properties, including a manor in Vikbolandet and all the mills in Torshälla.

The gift of the great possessions on the Lennartsnal peninsula to Vadstena monastery in 1384 marks the start of a long period of ecclesiastical ownership of the eastern part of the peninsula, which contributed to keeping the property together.
