Marie Grubbe could practice free sex because she could not have children

Marie Grubbe, the noblewoman who caused scandal due to adultery and divorce 350 years ago, continues to fascinate. A sea of ​​Danish writers have been inspired by her strength, courage and sexuality. They continued to write poems about her life, she lives on in our consciousness thanks to fairy tales, plays and novels.

The first was Ludvig Holberg, who sought her out when she lived at Falster, and the two dramatic divorces in her life – one from a king’s son – were long over. Then followed Steen Steensen Blicher, HC Andersen and IP Jacobsen and others. In recent times Ulla Ryum, Juliane Preisler and Lone Hørslev. The titles of Preisler’s and Hørslev’s book point directly to Grubbe’s alleged desire: ‘Kysse-Marie’ and ‘Dyret år’.
