History From http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history/families/douglas_in_europe.htm

Field Marshal Robert Douglas was firstly created baron, and then count, in Sweden. His main fief was the town of Skänninge, and his wife brought in the estate where they had the manor of Stjernorp erected. His descendants generally continued to reside in Sweden, some offshoots to Russia, Germany etc. The head of the house received in 1848 the title of Count (count of the entail of Mühlhausen) also in peerage of the Grand Duchy of Baden.

The main lineage did not produce long-lasting branches (except the russian branch, a few generations), until the riksmarskalk of Sweden (High Marshal), Count Ludvig (Louis) Douglas, Minister of Foreign Affairs, in the late 1800s, had several sons and yet more grandsons.
