In 1578 the castle was acquired by Ingeborg Skeel. She herself ruled it and since she was a woman it was quite unusual for that time. Various rumors spread among the people, saying that she was greedy, cruel, a witch, and even killed the architect of the castle. In reality she was just a successful businesswoman.
