a Swedish countess, writer and translator. She translated foreign works, wrote a work of the life of Jesus which was published in 1730-36, and wrote 600 sonnets. She gathered a circle of professors on Tyresö and corresponded with among others Sophia Elisabet Brenner. She was described as one of the most learned women of her epoch, and it was said that this made her unpopular among the male aristocracy, because she was generally superior to them.
