|Strandvagen - The Army museum is over behind this avenue|
|Royal Palace on the right|
|Yup - the Gods smiled upon my visit!|
So without further ado... The Swedish Royal Armouries and some interesting things for you to look at.
|Gustav Adolph's buff coat with bullet hole on right side of chest|
|The King's sword apparently found near his body on the field|
His Horse Streiff (apparently named after its first owner Mr Streiff) was bought by the king for 1,000 Thalers. It died of its wounds shortly after the battle and was stuffed. And here it is:
|Gustav Adolph's very stiff Streiff!|
|All he was left in on the field - 3 bloody shirts|
|The standard has 1626 on it. Leather plate shows full size|
|Karl XII's clothes|
|The hat is large and deep in the crown|
A couple of bonus shots from the many more I took. One shows some royal armour and the other a coach from the 18th century.
