Rogue and assassin. The Duke of Buckingham in the Axel Oxenstierna correspondence

Jönsson, Arne LU (2010) Colloquium Balticum IX Rigense
Abstract
There are to be sure many reasons for studying Axel Oxenstierna’s correspondence. One is the open pictures you get of prominent contemporaries, and the fact that the judgements and reports you read can be free from wisdom after the event. You have thus an excellent opportunity to get a glimpse of the background to the initiatives and actions of those at the centre of power.



In my paper I will discuss not how the Duke of Buckingham exerted an influence on British and European politics (there are many good books on that subject) but what his European – in particular: Swedish – contemporaries knew and thought about the man and his policies and how that affected policy makers at foreign courts.
