19th century romanticism

The Hasslebro-stone is a late Swedish rune stone that was created in the middle of the 19th century, and therefore lacks the signature that older rune stones have been given. The rune stone is located under an oak tree at Rönneholm Castle in the municipality of Eslöv and it is a local attraction as it is an expression of 19th century romanticism. The rune carving ornament is in the form of a dragon loop and the text honors Johan Eduard Lindequist (1803-1846), who was the steward at Rönneholm. He died on June 21, 1846, after drinking a cold beer on a hot summer day, getting cold and getting pneumonia.
According to legend, an earlier (real) rune stone is buried underneath, in the foundations.
