Ambience…

GA01Gustavus II Adolphus of Sweden is considered one of the most remarkable Swedish kings. He participated in four international wars, always at the forefront. When he inherited the country it was mired in serious internal conflicts, managed out of a deep economic crisis, widened its borders and made Sweden a world power. It was a great strategist, especially at the Thirty Years War in Germany.

Since its arrival in this country he carried out a strategy of conquest of the courses of the main rivers, seizing communications between principal german cities and the Baltic Sea. Finally fall in the battle of Lützen on November 6, 1632 under fire from a shooter who took advantage of not wearing armor due to a shoulder injury still uncured for a previous battle.
