Thanks. Had no idea what so ever about the existence of such a tax. Fascinating. Did some reading

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_tax

The name of the castle is Gåsevadsholm, meaning a piece of streaming water low enough to let geese pass, walking from one dry spot to another; not a very glorious name for a castle, but somewhat descriptive

There are many castles like this one scattered over the country(side) Some of the owners ... Oh, I can´t really get any further. Should know though, suppose it´s basics in the field of History of Economics

I´ll try to find out
