Untitled - Stockholm mid 17th century

DESCRIPTION: SOLD

Antique view of Stockholm with 'Admiralty Island' in the background records a procession of robed Senators and other nobles including King Carolus. In the distance to the left is the "Palatium Admiralitatis", the Skeppsholmen Admiralty palace built in 1650 and to the right- Kastellholmen. Depicts numerous naval vessels firing a salute. Contains emblems for Livonia, Scania, Finnonia Meridionalis, Finnonia Septentrionalis, and Uplandia.

It is unclear what occasion this engraving commemorates but it is likely after 1658 when Denmark was forced to cede control of Scania to Sweden. Possibly records the coronation procession of King Charles XI in 1672.
