Pontus De la Gardie

Historical Excerpts

" Pontus De la Gardie, född som Ponce d'Escouperie, 1520 i Caunes-Minervois, Languedoc, Frankrike, död 5 november 1585 (drunknad) i Narva, var en fransk militär, friherre, och riksråd. Han var son till köpmannen Jacques Scoperier men uppfann en adelstitel från ett gods i närheten av fädernehemmet.[1] Han började sin militära bana i Frankrike men hamnade så småningom i dansk tjänst. Under nordiska sjuårskriget togs han till fånga av svenskarna 1565. Han gick över till den svenska armén och blev 1571 friherre, varefter han gifte sig med Sofia Johansdotter Gyllenhielm.[1]

" On 4 February 1580 De la Gardie married Sofia Johansdotter Gyllenhielm (ca.1556-1583), the illegitimate daughter of John III of Sweden and a Finnish lady, Karin Hansdotter.[citation needed] During the wedding, a gallery in the church collapsed and one person was killed. Some sceptics claimed it was a bad omen or a divine act with which God condemned the marriage.[3]

Pontus De la Gardie and Sofia Gyllenhielm had three children:

Brita Pontusdotter De la Gardie (1581–1645) Baron Johan De la Gardie (1582–1642), statesman of the Swedish Empire Count and Field Marshal Jacob De la Gardie (1583–1652)" [2]
