Dahlbergh, Erik Jönsson

Count Erik Jönsson Dahlbergh (1625-1703) was a Swedish military engineer, Governor-general and Field Marshal. In warfare he won several sieges, including Copenhagen and Kronborg. He famously led a Swedish army across the frozen Great and Little Belts to attack Copenhagen. Dahlberg was reknown as a skilled map-maker, for the fortresses he designed, and his writings on military architecture. He remains well known today for his engravings in "Suecia Antiqua et Hodierna" (published 1660–1716), and for assisting Samuel Pufendorf in his "Histoire de Charles X Gustave". He also wrote a memoir of his life and an account "Of the campaigns of Charles X"
