He was an elected member of the Folketing from 1876 to 1879 and a royally appointed member of the Landsting from 1895 to 1910, representing the conservative party Højre until 1900 when he was one of nine Højre-members of the Landsting who left the party in a protest against the government's duty and tax reforms and formed the conservative group De Frikonservative in 1902. He was speaker of the Landsting from 1902 to 1907.
