Special Diplomatic Mission of Adolf Vratislav of Sternberg. The Kingdom of Sweden in the mid-1670s, seen by the Emperor‘s Ambassador
Languages of publication
The presented article is primarily focused on the important Baroque aristocrat Count Adolf Vratislav of Sternberg and his diplomatic mission to the Swedish court of King Charles XI in 1673–1674. Sweden, as a S candinavian great power, played an important role in the power arrangement of Europe at that time. In 1675, Louis XIV started a war, thus escalating a diplomatic pressure against the Stockholm government from the French side as well as from the Habsburg Monarchy. The emperor‘s ambassador Adolf Vratislav of Sternberg represented a key person in this respect.
