He was also a regular Bilderberg Group attendee (List of Bilderberg attendees) 1992-2001. religion footnotes signature '''Olaus Rudbeck''' (also known as ''Olof Rudbeck the Elder'', to distinguish him from his son, and occasionally with the surname Latinized as ''Olaus Rudbeckius'') (September 13, 1630 Västerås – December 12, 1702) was a Swedish scientist and writer, professor of medicine at Uppsala University and for several periods ''rector magnificus'' of the same university. He was the son of Bishop Johannes Rudbeckius, who was personal chaplain to King Gustavus Adolphus (Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden), and the father of botanist Olof Rudbeck the Younger. Rudbeck is primarily known for his contributions in two fields: human anatomy and linguistics, but he was also accomplished in many other fields including music and botany. (He established the first botanical garden in Sweden at Uppsala, called Rudbeck's Garden, but which was renamed a hundred years later for his son's student, the botanist Carolus Linnaeus.) Communications With train it takes 10 minutes to central Västerås (a larger city), and about an hour to the Central Station of Stockholm. It is also possible to travel straight south, passing the bridge over Lake Mälaren to the larger city Eskilstuna. Good car transport is provided by European route E18 that passes between Kolbäck and Hallstahammar. History Steelmaking in this municipality was started in larger scale in the 16th and 17th centuries when forges where built here. Is was a new phenomena to run forge mills separate from mining and pig iron production sites in Bergslagen. The mills were located in Virsbo, Ramnäs and Surahammar and Pig iron was transported from mills further north, initially by horse-sledges in the winter. There was ample local supply of hydropower to run the forge hammers and timber to make charcoal. Later, when Strömsholm Canal was finished, it was used to ship finished products to Västerås and Stockholm for export. This restructuring process appears to have been driven by the need to secure access to hydropower and timber for the forges since both the mines (mining) and blast furnaces used up considerable amounts of resources in the production of pig iron. *Vendel - from Ottarshögen (the mound of Ohthere) in Uppland, Sweden *Anundshög - the mound of Anund just outside Västerås in Västmanland, Sweden Anundshög, Stoneship * Vince Lombardi Trophy * Vestmanlands Läns Tidning, a local daily newspaper in Västerås, Sweden. * The postcode of Valletta, the capital city of Malta. Margaret was described as intelligent and beautiful, and the marriage was considered a happy one; her husband was not known to be unfaithful to her. She devoted her life to domestic duties and family life. She remained a Catholic her entire life, and it was painful for her to make clothes and curtains of the textiles the king confiscated from old Catholic convents, but it does not seem that she ever used any influence to promote her own beliefs in politics, in religion or otherwise. She allegedly had the ability to keep his temperament under control, was a calming influence on him, managed to get punishments he meted out reduced, advised him to show mercy and leniency, all of which made her popular. Wilhelmina Stålberg, P. G. Berg : ''Anteckningar om svenska qvinnor'' (Notes of Swedish women) (in Swedish) She gave donations to the still active Vadstena Abbey, following the example of her family: her mother was also the benefactor of Vreta Abbey. Carl Silfverstolpe: ''Vadstena klosters uppbörds- och utgiftsbok'' (The account-book of Vadstena Abbey) (Swedish) Margaret often used the services of a cunning woman, the peasant-wife Brigitta Andersdotter, whom she often hired to see to the health of herself, her sister Märtha and their children, and much appreciated for her skill. She was almost constantly pregnant, which devastated her health. Wilhelmina Stålberg, P. G. Berg : ''Anteckningar om svenska qvinnor'' (Notes of Swedish women) (in Swedish) In August 1551, she and her children made an excursion by boat on Mälaren between Gripsholm and Västerås, and on their return, she took ill with pneumonia. When she died, she was deeply mourned by the king. thumb Grave monument to Gustav and Margaret over their crypt in Uppsala Cathedral (File:Uppsala Cathederal tomb.jpg) *At the Riksdag in 1517, regent Sten Sture the Younger and the Privy Council (Privy Council of Sweden) deposed archbishop Gustav Trolle. *At Västerås in 1527 Lutheranism was adopted as the new state religion instead of Roman Catholicism *At Arboga in 1561, the term ''riksdag'' was used for the first time.
