1608, Dec 81629, Aug 18
a Swedish noblewoman, salonist and writer, poet and Lady of Letters. During her lifetime, she became an ideal and role model for a learned female scholar. She studied theology, ethics, history, philology and geology, and mastered Latin, French, German and Greek. This was unusual, as the educational level was not normally this high for females of the nobility. She corresponded in Latin, and became known for her poetry. Vendela Skytte died of the plague with her newborn child shortly after having giving birth in Stralsund while visiting her spouse during his military service in Germany.
