November 8, 2021 is a very sad day. A girl, dressed and named as a boy, “C.J.,” as she was commonly known at Horten VGs school and by her local community, was yet another victim of the norwegian system. Every year, many other girls and boys take their own lives, after being placed in a "perfect norwegian foster-family", brainwashed by Janteloven. This isn't shown in the newspapers! Why did the case workers from barneverntjenester didn't care nor do they report the abuses she was going through inside that "perfect bonus-family"? She might be in a better place now, relieved! Rest in peace!

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
