Ryegaard's history dates back to before 1350. Ryegaard has for long periods dominated a very large area in the current Lejre municipality. The manor has been owned by the family Scheel since 1824.
Trudsholms listed main building, which is perhaps the oldest single Renaissance building in Denmark, was built in 1551. The manor's main building was substantially rebuilt in 1874 and has not been inhabited since 1990. Today it is in a relatively poor condition. Trudsholm is used for exhibitions and events, both for companies, associations and individuals.
