I would like to say although most of this is accurate please do not forget
Lennard Torstenson. He did the thirty year war and was the count there. Worked for the king very hard. He was awarded all sorts of things in his day. but his love for the his country and family helped to win the war. I know he's my great great great uncle.

Surely the fact that Gustav set clear & simple objectives, was an inspired leader who identified talent and fostered it, rather than sticking with just nobility, made him a much more effective monarch? After all Torstenson wasn't the King, he was an advisor.
