Biography

Personal physician to King Christian IV of Denmark, and his successor, Frederick III.

Made great advances in the field of runic studies, and was regarded as something of a genius at the time, as evidenced by his extensive letters to other academics throughout Europe.

His Kunstkammer was one of the first modern museums.[1]
