Agnes Bruun (née Licht; 20 August 1856 – 19 December 1964) was a Danish centenarian who was the oldest person ever to die in Denmark until 1975, when her age was surpassed by Johannes W Hansen. After Marie Carstensen, who died in the United States, Bruun was the second Danish-born person to reach the age of 108.
Agnes Bruun was born as Agnes Licht in Hundborg, Thisted, Nordjylland, Denmark on 20 August 1856 as one of six children born to Hans Henrik Licht and Annania Vogelius. Her father was the vicar to Hundborg parish. She married William Bruun (1852–1911) and had a son, Hans Henrik Bruun (1884–1954).
Bruun became the oldest person in Denmark aged 103, following the death of Frederikke Nielsen on 6 June 1960. She held the title until her death on 19 December 1964 at the age of 108 years, 121 days. Her successor as the oldest person in Denmark was 104-year-old Sophie Madsen. Bruun was also the last known person in Denmark who was born in the 1850s.
