Gustav-Adolf-Denkmal

Gustav II Adolf of the House of Wasa was King of Sweden from 1611 to 1632 and one of the most important figures in Swedish history and the Thirty Years' War. Through reforms and his military-political actions, he made a significant contribution to giving Sweden a hegemonic position in northern Europe, which lasted until the beginning of the 18th century. His intervention in the Thirty Years' War in Germany, motivated by the assertion of this hegemonic position, prevented a victory for the imperial Catholic camp of the Habsburgs and thus also secured the existence of German Protestantism.
