Statyn Alexander II i Helsingfors

Efter Borgå lantdag år 1809 hade ständerna i Finland inte sammankallats på 54 år. Kejsare och Självhärskare Alexander II över hela Ryssland var även Storfurste av Finland. Han sammankallade ständerna i Finland till en lantdag i Helsingfors år 1863. Kejsaren öppnade själv högtidligt lantdagen med ett tal den 18 september 1863. Talet och året 1863 har avbildats på statyn Alexander II på Senatstorget. På lantdagen beslöts att de finländska lagarna och förordningarna från och med nu skulle bestämmas i Finland. Lantdagen började även sammanträda regelbundet. Kejsaren behöll dock rätten att själv ändra på grundlagen vid behov. Geheimerådet Gabriel Anton Cronstedt och dennes bror senatorn i ekonomiedepartementet Carl Olof Cronstedt var med på lantdagen. Ytterligare information om denna tid finns på Hertonäs gård.

Aleksanteri II:n patsas Helsingissä

Suomen säädyt eivät kokoontuneet 54:ään vuoteen vuoden 1809 Porvoon maapäivien jälkeen. Koko Venäjänmaan Keisari ja Itsevaltias Aleksanteri II oli myös Suomen Suuriruhtinas. Hän kutsui Suomen säädyt koolle valtiopäiville Helsinkiin vuonna 1863. Keisari avasi henkilökohtaisesti valtiopäivät juhlallisesti puheellaan 18. syyskuuta 1863. Puhe ja vuosiluku 1863 on kuvattu Aleksanteri II:n patsaassa Senaatintorilla. Valtiopäivät päättivät, että Suomen laeista ja säädöksistä tulisi tästä lähtien päättää kotimaassa. Valtiopäivät kutsuttiin koolle tasaisin väliajoin. Keisari piti kuitenkin kiinni oikeuksistaan muuttaa perustuslakia tarpeen vaatiessa. Salaneuvos Gabriel Anton Cronstedt ja hänen veljensä, talousministeriön senaattori Carl Olof Cronstedt, osallistuivat valtiopäiviin. Lisätietoa tästä ajasta löytyy Herttoniemen kartanosta.

A Monument in Helsinki Commemorating Alexander II

After the assembly of the land in Porvoo in 1809 the estates of Finland had not been called for to meet in 54 years. The Supreme Emperor Alexander II of Russia was also Grand Duke of Finland. He summoned the estates to a new assembly in Helsinki in 1863. The emperor himself opened the meeting solemnly with a speech 18th September 1863. The speech and the year 1863 are visible on the monument commemorating Alexander II in the Senate Square. At the assembly, the Finnish estates decided that new laws and decrees should be legislated in Finland. The land assembly began to meet regularly. The emperor kept the right of veto for himself regarding the Finnish constitution. Privy councillor Gabriel Anton Cronstedt and his brother, the senator of the economic department Carl Olof Cronstedt, attended the land assembly. More information about this period can be found at Hertonäs manor. Read more below!Läs mera »

Punschbål - skål!

Officerare och viceamiraler, borgare och herrgårdsägare - samt modernt museifolk - har något gemensamt sedan 1700-talet: de har gillat och avnjutit punsch. I Hertonäs gårds museums samlingar finns flera föremål som anknyter till denna guldgula alkoholdryck som nådde vårt land tack vare den globala handeln. Till exempel viceamiral Cronstedts föremål vittnar om att denna dryck var populär i slutet av 1700-talet och början av 1800-talet. Läs mer nedan! Läs mera »

Helene Gripenberg - from Lady of the Manor to Mecenat

19.11.2020 kl. 09:09
Helene Gripenberg (1851-1932) was one of the ladies of Hertonäs Manor who lived here the longest. She was born in Oulu, graduated from the Smola Institute in St. Petersburg, studied music in Dresden before becoming a piano teacher until she settled in Herttoniemi. She lived a long life, became 81 years old, and before the Civil War she had to witness the murder of her husband. She donated Hertonäs Manor in her will to its present owner, the society Svenska Odlingens Vänner i Helsinge r.f. Read more below!

The marriage between Helene Gripenberg and John Bergbom lasted for 35 years. From this time in her life we lack sources. In her memoirs that she wrote in 1931, she finishes with stating that she reconnected with her second cousin and married him. “Thus my activities got another direction and my life meaning and worth.” She mentions that John held her dear during their marriage and did his best to even her path as she entered the new household and became lady of the manor. It was no easy task - it required a good sense of organizing.  The couple remained childless, which meant that Hertonäs Manor had no heir. Their solution to this problem was to donate the manor to the society Svenska Odlingens Vänner i Helsinge that still manages the manor today.

Helene passed away peacefully on December 15th 1932, but her husband suffered a terrible fate fifteen years earlier. In 1917 Finland was an autonomous part of the Russian Empire and the shortage of food as well as the political uprisings had increased during the ongoing First World War. The labour movement in Finland had become more powerful not only in Finland but also in the rest of Europe. The bad blood between the classes of society, i. e. between the whites (mainly the bourgois and the peasantry) and the reds (mainly the labourers and their supporters), increased. The two Russian revolutions in 1917 also caused more instability. This eventually led to the Finnish Civil War between the reds and the whites, fought in 1918 from January 27th to May 15th. One of the victims of these unstable times was Helene’s husband.

One morning in November 1917 the old couple sat around the breakfast table on the second floor. Suddenly armed red guards broke into the manor. A short exchange of words between John and the guards ended in the shooting of the old man, who fell to the floor and died on the spot. Helene survived physically unharmed, and later on would only talk about the occasion as “the last terrible blow” in her memoirs. The more exact notes about what actually happened that morning derives from Helene’s brother, Lennart, who has described the happenings in a memorial over John in 1931. According to Lennart John had put his hands in the pockets of his housecoat during the conversation. This had alarmed the guard to think he was grabbing a gun, so they fired a bullet against him and shot him dead. 

After the murder Helene moved away from the manor and spent the rest of her life on Luotsikatu in Helsinki. Her brother Lennart and his wife and children lived in the same staircase and Helene spent her last years surrounded by her relatives.
