Gustav Adolfsdagen

While I am writing about holidays, I would like to mention that today is also GustavAdolfsdagen in Sweden. Gustavus Adolphuswas Sweden’s greatest king. Under his rule Sweden became, unlikely as it might seem, one of the greatest powers in Europe. Unfortunately, he was killed on this day in 1632 during the Thirty-Years War.
