Åke Tott

Åke Henriksson Tott (or Achatius Tott) (1598–1640) was a Swedish soldier and politician. He was born in Lohja to Princess Sigrid of Sweden. He was appointed Privy Councilor in 1630, and Field Marshal in 1631. In the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648), he commanded troops at the Battle of Grubin, in 1627 and the Battle of Breitenfeld, in 1631. King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden is said to have called him "the snow plow, who is going to clear the path for the rest". He married Sigrid Bielke (1607–1634), and fathered Clas Åkesson Tott the younger, and Åke Henrik Åkesson Tott.
