By Per Olov Enquist

In this captivating and meticulously researched book, acclaimed Swedish author Per Olov Enquist transports readers back to the tumultuous 17th century, where they will encounter the fascinating life and times of Johan von Düben, the personal physician to the Swedish royal family.

Düben was a man of extraordinary talent and ambition. Born into a humble family, he rose through the ranks of the medical profession, eventually becoming one of the most trusted and influential figures at the Swedish court. He served as physician to three successive kings—Gustav II Adolf, Christina, and Charles XI—and played a vital role in the political and cultural life of the country.

Enquist's account of Düben's life is based on extensive archival research and provides a rich and detailed portrait of the man and his times. We learn about Düben's medical practices, his relationships with the royal family, and his involvement in the religious and intellectual debates of the day. Through Düben's eyes, we witness the grandeur and the intrigue of the Swedish court, as well as the challenges and hardships of living in a turbulent and rapidly changing era.

The Royal Physician is a masterful work of historical fiction that offers a unique and illuminating glimpse into the heart of the Swedish court. Enquist's vivid prose and keen eye for detail bring Düben's world to life, creating a rich and immersive experience for readers. This is a must-read for anyone interested in Swedish history, the 17th century, or the fascinating life of Johan von Düben.
