Hvedholm Castle near Faaborg on the island of Funen in Denmark was built in the 15th century. It was owned in turn by the Banke, Hardenberg and Brahe families until 1919, when the Danish government presented the then owners with an enormous tax demand, forcing them to sell it to the state for approximately 175,000 Danish kroner.
Hvedholm Castle was later returned to the Brahe family, who were considered for generations the rightful rulers of the castle and surrounding villages. The family was served by the nearby Horne Church.
