A trip to Stralsund, beautiful Hanseatic city allowed me to see some portraits of Charles XII, weapons and memorabilia from the GNW. Unfortunately not much in guides and the glass cases and illumination made photography almost impossible.
 Swedish cavalry pistol with battle scen cast into the lock plate. Figures 5mm high !

Portraits of Charles XII. Simple military costume.He spent a year here after his enforced holiday in Moldavia. Stralsund was technically Swedish until 1807.

General whose name I wrote down and lost !
Eugene of Savoy.
