Long Description:
Digteren Ambrosius Stub blev født 17. maj 1705 og døde d. 15. juli 1758. Han var søn af enskrædder. Via faderens kontakt til adelen fik han mulighed for at studere teologi på Københavns Universitet. Men efter 10 års studier vendte han tilbage til Fyn uden en afsluttende eksamen. Han arbejde blandt andet som huspoet på Valdemar slot. Hans mest kendte dig er "Den kiedsom Vinter gik sin Gang" som først blev udgivet 13 år efter hans død. langt de fleste af hans digte blev ligeledes udgivet efter hans død.

Dette smukke, 400 år gamle egetræ er kendt som Ambrosius egn, da han efter sigende holdt af at sidde ved foden af træet og læse og skrive.

The poet Ambrosius Stub was born May 17'th 705 and died July 15'th 1758 as a son of a tailor. His father had contacts to the local aristocracy which made it possible for Ambrosius to study at the University of Copenhagen. Ten years later he returned to Funen without a degree. He worked among other things as a poet for noble families.

His most famous poem is "The bleak winter went his way" which was published 13 years after his death.

This beautiful oak was named after Ambrosius as it was said he liked to sit at foot of it to read or write.
