Tautas teika

      [LV] Pie Ēdoles pils parkā ezermalā atrodas ozols, ko sauc par Rūķīšu ozolu. Tas ir vecs un nolāpīts ar vairākām koka dēlītēm. Par Rūķīšu ozolu viņu ir iesaukuši, ka tur senāk dzīvojuši rūķīši. Tā reiz ķēniņš braucis garām ar karīti, un viņš redzējis, ka tur pa to ir lēkājuši rūķīši. Stāsta, ka, ja to ozolu nelāpīšot un aizlaidīšot bojā1 tad pils nogrims ezerā.

Tā kā teikām un nostāstiem apvītais objekts bija vēsturisks simbols, pils un parka apsaimniekotāji savulaik daudz darīja, lai to pasargātu un saglabātu. Deviņdesmitajos gados nolūzušā ozola stumbrs tika nostiprināts ar stabu un celma daļa apmūrēta. Redzot koka novecošanu, gan pamatskolas skolēni, gan citi entuziasti mēģināja saglabāt vēsturi, stādot jaunus ozolus, bet vairums nav ieauguši. Vēsturiskajā vietā netālu no norādes uz veco koku gan zaļo kāds aptuveni ceturtdaļgadsimtu piedzīvojis ozoliņš. Diemžēl 2007.gada vasarā Rūķīšu ozols nolūza. Ir neoficiālas ziņas, ka varenais koks esot bijis vecāks par kultūrvēsturisko arhitektūras pieminekli – tam varējis būt ap 800 gadu. Šāda iespēja netiek apšaubīta arī no bioloģiskā viedokļa. No nostāstiem, atmiņām un vēstures liecībām  par Ēdoli, ir pamats ticēt, ka ozols bijis senču svētvieta.

The legend

      [EN]  In Edole Castle Park there is an oak at the edge of the lake that is called an dwarfs' oak. It is very old and fixed with several wooden planks. It has got its name because of dwarfs that had lived there. Once the king had seen the dwarfs jumping over the oak while he was passing by in his carriage. It has been told that if the oak fell down the castle would sink in the lake.

During the nineties the broken oak trunk was embedded with bollard but stump was strengthened with stone masonry. Unfortunately, the dwarfs' oak broke down in the summer of 2007. Unofficial information is that the great tree was older than the historical architectural monument – castle. It could have been around 800 years old. This possibility is also called from the biological point of view. From stories, memories and history of Edole, there is a reason to believe that the oak has been the sacred site.
