Henriette Lund

1829 - 1909


Henriette Lund was born and grew up in Copenhagen in a highly cultivated, bourgeois civil servant family, where she lived her life as an unmarried daughter, sister of the historian Troels-Lund, and niece of the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and the natural scientist P. W. Lund. She was the aesthete in what was a modest home, but also a sharp observer of the iron discipline, which the elaborate lifestyle of the family demanded that the young girl participated in. Her memoirs Erindringer fra Hjemmet, were published posthumously in 1909.
