    A Swedish nobleman who was also an accomplished soldier and military theorist, Gustaf Wilhelm af Tibell was symbolic of the close relations between France and Sweden following the French Revolution, serving a fairly high post in the French military during the 1798-1801 campaign in Italy. Later, he would be called back to serve in Sweden, filling many key military-related roles for the remainder of his life.
