1660unknown
a Swedish noblewoman. She was the first woman to give a lecture at a Swedish university. Daughter of the bishop of Gothenburg, Zacharias Klingius, who was ennobled as Klingenstjerna, she was known as "a savant in skirts" for her great learning. She wrote an oration in Latin and gave a lecture at Linköping University, something unique for her gender in the age and likely the first woman to have done so in Northern Europe. She married an ensign Broman of the Dalregementet.
