of modern times, was born at Fano, in Upland, June
16, 1583. He was educated at Jena and Wittenberg.
At the age of twenty-six he was chosen a senator, after
having been employed in important negotiations. In
1611 Gustavus Adolphus appointed him chancellor of
Sweden, or prime minister. The prudence, zeal, and
profound combinations of Oxenstiern contributed greatly
to the success of the Swedish hero. After Gustavus
was killed, in 1632, the chancellor was invested with full
power by the senate, and prosecuted the war against
the Emperor of Germany. He was recognized as the
head of the Protestant league, which gained several vic-
tories under his direction. During the minority of Queen
Christina he governed Sweden with ability, restored the
finances to good order, and patronized learning. He
was prime minister after Christina began to reign, (1645,)
and strenuously opposed her abdication. He died in
August, 1654. Oxenstiern was the author of the often-
quoted observation, addressed to his son, " You do not
know, my son, with how little wisdom the world is
governed," (" Nescis, mi fili, quantilla prudentii homi-
nes regantur.") He was the reputed author of the
second volume of " Historia Belli Sueco-Germanici,"
(" History of the Swedish-German War,") of which
Chemnitz wrote the first volume. He was considered
an equal match for Richelieu in diplomacy. He had
two sons, John and Erik, who obtained high offices in
the public service.
