  • Notes 

      Henrik Bielke Kaas ( 7 September 1686 on Elingaard in Norway - July 1 1773 at Boltinggård ) was a Danish officer and landowner .

      He was the son of the prefect His Kaas . 12 years old, he came to Denmark as a page in the later Chancellor Count Conrad Reventlow . In its 18th Kaas years entered into 2 Zealand Rider Regiment from below by educating themselves in war craft. In six years, he participated in the Spanish War of Succession , was featured in the famous battle and was again and again severely wounded. After the Battle of Höchstädt ( 1704 ) he was appointed to the grain in the Regiment on horseback , by Ramillies ( 1706 ) to Lieutenant after Malplaquet ( 1709 ) to captain at Sealand national Dragoon Regiment and now turned back to Denmark. 1711 he was promoted to Major by 2 Funen Rider Regiment in 1714 as a reward for his "illustrious Conditions' at Gadebusch to lieutenant colonel . In this position he remained for 17 years until he, after in 1725 having been colonel's character in 1731 was appointed commander of the 2nd Jutland Rider Regiment. This belonged to the corps on the occasion of the Polish tronfølgestrid 1734 - 36 was sent to the Riparian and Kaas was here in 1735 Major General . 1746 he rose to lieutenant general , 1753 to the general of the cavalry and were decorated in 1740 with Dannebrog- , 1754 with l'Union parfaite and 1760 with the Elephant . During the mobilization in 1758 and the following year he was designated as head of a reserve corps that was never informed. 1763 resigned his command of his regiment, but was used for some years thereafter through inspections and 1ign. After nearly 70 years of honorable service he closed his eyes 1 July 1773 on Boltinggård.

      Kaas was an intrepid soldier and a capable, practical officer with warm interest in his condition and his weapon, but his talent as a driver has hardly been commensurate with the high rank, he gradually reached up to. His company subfield trains on the Rhine, the only time he was given the opportunity to actively perform in a higher command post is at least been severely criticized, and the points he makes in his autobiography, clearly well on some reading, but not scant strategic or tactical insight - neither when he acts as a defender of the relaxation of the leadership of titnævnte campaign or when he, as late as 1765 , asserting that a (of Frederick II's famous rider generals introduced) "upcoming Maxime to hunt against his enemy contrary to all Erfa Purity ". But Kaas was on the whole a legitimate conservative nature, also in the administrative area one born opponent so to speak, of any reform. Faced with his subordinates, and in particular 'the so-called vile man', he was a benevolent and sympathetic superior officer; however, accused him of during the war in Germany to have been guilty of bad udsugelser to residents.

      Kaas was 2 times married but had no children: 1 time ( 1713 ) with Anne Wind f von der Kuhla (1684 - 26 March 1744), the widow of Captain Erik Banner (dead on Helsingborg March 10, 1710) and daughter of Bendix von der Kuhla to Løgtved ; 2 time ( 30 July 1750 ) with Regitse Sophie born Baroness Güldencrone (May 25, 1710 - December 18, 1792), widow of ritmester Christopher Frederick Ahlefeldtsgade (d. 1749) and daughter of George Baron Güldencrone to Urup . She was 1758 dame de l'Union parfaite. With his first wife got Kaas Boltinggård, with the other Nordskov , both on Funen . The last farm he sold, the first as well as Dilutables Farm, which he acquired, he established the estate Kaaseslund , which was later substituted by a fideikommiskapital , and was held by the family Huitfeldt (-Kaas). As a landowner he worked for humane purposes: Refurbished churches, extended schools and established a hospital.
