Book Alexandra von Schwerin
In her lecture “A chatelaine – trophy wife or business manager?” Alexandra von Schwerin shares the story of her search for personal identity in a male dominated environment, and the meeting with the 20 chatelaines who for 500 years determined the history of Skarhult.

Since women were often minors, tracing them in historical documents has been a challenge. In reality, however, they exercised power, often on a large scale. Power in Disguise is not only about the women of Skarhult, but also about the thousands of Swedish women who carried Sweden forward socially, economically, and politically throughout our history.
