Famous Last Will and Testament Author Hans Christian Andersen

About the last will and testament of famous Dutch author Hans Christian Andersen.


HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN, Danish author, died 1875

Last Will: The beloved bachelor writer, whose life was far less serene than the saintly mythology grown on his grave, left the largest amount to Edvard Collin, business adviser and partner in a lifelong thorny friendship. From a total estate valued under Pound 4,000, legacies also went to Andersen's birthplace city of Odense. He gave his rare books and manuscripts, including proof editions of Charles Dickens's works, to the Danish Royal Library; and he also provided for publication of letters received throughout his life from world celebrities.
