Erik Jönsson Dahlberg, Count

Dahlberg, Erik Jönsson, Count (āˈrēk yönˈsən dälˈbĕrg) [key], 1625–1703, Swedish military engineer, field marshal, and architect. In 1658 he conveyed the army of Charles X of Sweden across the frozen Little and Great Belt straits in a daring march on Copenhagen. As governor of Livonia, he held Riga through two sieges. His volume of architectural engravings is a valuable record of Sweden's monuments.
