Between taking the throne of Sweden aged just 16 and dying in battle today in 1632, Gustavus Adolphus the Great transformed his nation from a little-known country to a major player on the European scene.

The military theorist Clausewitz listed him alongside Alexander the Great and Napoleon as one of the greatest generals of all time. Today Swedes, and people of Swedish heritage elsewhere in the world, commemorate his legacy, both as a general and as an educator. Why not join in the fun, with a Swedish Ale Punch, based on bourbon, beer and Sweden's national liqueur, Swedish Punch?
