      Jacob Brønnum Scavenius Estrup

      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Jacob Brønnum Scavenius Estrup, (16 April 1825-24 December 1913), was a Danish politician, member of the Højre party. He was Interior Minister from 1865 to 1869 in the Cabinet of Frijs and Council President as well as Finance Minister from 1875 to 1894 as the leader of the Estrup Cabinet. At 23 years, he was the longest sitting Danish minister ever.[1]

      From a Danish historical perspective, he is perhaps most famous (or infamous) for the so-called provisional time (provisorietiden) from 1885-1894. After a huge defeat in the 1884 Folketinget parliamentary election, in which the Højre party only gained 19 out of 102 seats, he simply refused to resign as Head of Government. (The title "konseilspresident" has later been changed to "statsminister" but both titles are equivalent to Prime Minister) He then wasn't able to get parliamentary support for the imperative annual Financial Laws, he instead managed to bring about King Christian IX's support for Provisional Financial Laws. This included support from the so-called Landstinget as well. The Landstinget was a smaller assembly of politicians, of which half of its members were chosen by the Monarch. A reason to why the Monarch agreed to nine such annual provisional laws, the King and Estrup both believed in the building of the Copenhagen defense wall (Københavns befæstning) at the time known as "Vestencienten" built between 1888-92.

      iography

      Estrup was son of the landowner and headmaster at Sorø Academy Hector Frederik Janson Estrup (1794?1846) and Jacobine Scavenius (1800-1829), daughter of Jacob Brønnum Scavenius (1749?1820).[4]

      He inherited the estate Kongsdal in Holbæk amt in 1846. In 1852 he also bought the estate Skaføgård in Randers.[5][6]

      As Interior Minister in the Cabinet of Frijs, Estrup took control of the railroads of Jutland and Funen, which had been ceded to an English consortium in 1861. He expanded the railroads in Vendsyssel and built new lines from Skanderborg to Silkeborg and along the west coast of Jutland to Esbjerg, earning him the nickname "Railway Minister". He also built up the harbour in Esbjerg, which turned into an important center for exports. In 1869 he was forced to step down from his post because of health problems.[7]

      In 1875 Estrup was able to replace Christen Andreas Fonnesbech as Council President. Estrup himself also took the post as Finance Minister, perhaps the most important post as Denmark was economically worn down after the Second War of Schleswig. In 1877 Estrup was unable to secure support for his budget bill in Folketinget, as demanded by the Danish Constitution, but chose instead to issue it as a provisional law. This happened repeatedly in the years 1885 to 1894, the so-called provisional period (provisorietid). Among others he was opposed by the Venstre leaders Christen Berg and Viggo Hørup.

      When an assassination attempt failed on 21 October 1885, Estrup responded by passing various laws restricting the press, restricting the right to own arms, and broadening the powers of the police. In 1894, Venstre and Estrup's Højre cooperated to pass a budget bill, and Estrup resigned. He would not hold any future offices as a minister but retained significant influence in the following governments formed by Højre.

      Personal life
      He was decorated with the Order of the Elephant in 1878 with conferring rank of Grand Cross Knight of the Order of the Dannebrog and Dannebrogsmand. He was married in 1857 to Regitze Holsten-Charisius (1831-1896), daughter of Adam Christopher Holsten-Charisius. They were the parents of six children. Estrup died on Christmas Eve 1913 in Kongsdal and was buried at Undløse Church.

    Statesman, Prime Minister of Denmark. He served from 11 June 1875 to 7 August 1894. Prior to becoming prime minister he became a member of the upper chamber of parliament in 1864 representing the National Landowners’ Party. In 1865 he became minister of the interior. In this position he made major improvements in the railways and in Esbjerg harbor. He influenced the writing of a new constitution which gave landowners extensive power in parliament. He then became the leader of a powerful conservative group known as Højre. Backed by the king and a majority in both chambers he became prime minister. He also became finance minister. He is best remembered for creating provisional budgets approved by the king when parliament refused to adopt his recommendations. He implemented some social reforms and the Financial Act of April 1894 containing grants for temporary military installations. He resigned in 1894 and after 23 years, he was the longest sitting Danish minister ever.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Skaføgård is a manor house in the parish of Hvilsager in Syddjurs Municipality in the eastern Jutland peninsula of Djursland, Denmark. It is not one of Denmark's largest manor-houses, but one of the best preserved. Inside there is an enormous oak closet carved by the Dutch carpenter Mikkel van Gronningen whose most famous work is the pulpit in Århus Cathedral. The closet covers 13 m2 (140 sq ft) of wall space and, in view of its rich detail, is considered to be one of the most outstanding examples of carved wooden Renaissance furniture in Northern Europe
    History
    Skaføgård was built around 1580 by Danish nobleman Jørgen Rosenkrantz (1523-1596) who had two sons: Otto Rosenkrantz and Holger Rosenkrantz (1574-1642). As soon as he was able, he built a manor for both of them: Skaføgård and Rosenholm in 1559. Unfortunately Otto died early, after which Skaføgård became a dower house for Jørgen's wife, Dorthe Lange, until her death in 1613. After this the estate was handed over to the son Holger. His son Gunde Rosenkrantz (1604-1675) had to sell it in 1647 because of poor finances. After that the estate often changed hands in the following century. [3][4] [5]
    One of the later owners was Jacob Brønnum Scavenius Estrup (1825-1913) who acquired it in 1852. His descendants still own Skaføgård.
