Portrait bust to the left in oval by Hans Christoph von Königsmarck (1600-1663). Von Königsmarck was a Swedish field marshal of German descent and was the progenitor of the Swedish branch of the Königsmarck family. He fought in the Thirty Years' War and was appointed Governor General of Bremen-Verden after the Peace of Westphalia. In 1655 he became a field marshal and incorporated into the Swedish nobility as Count of Västervik. In the beginning of the Second Northern War he was taken prisoner by the Poles. He was not released until 1660 after the signing of the Treaty of Oliva. After his imprisonment he returned to Sweden, where he died in 1663. Copper engraving, maker unknown. Made around 1660, presumably as an illustration in a book.
