Lasse Lucidor

  • Birth 1638
  • Death 13 Aug 1674
  • Burial Stockholm, Stockholms kommun, Stockholms län, Sweden
  • Memorial ID 8835628

Teacher, Lyricist, Singer and Poet. Real name Lars Johansson, he was educated at the universities of Greifwald and Leipzig in Germany, but was kicked out of both for unruly behaviour. After his education he travelled in France, Germany and Italy before turning back to Sweden with a theatre company. There he got work for a few years as a language teacher in Uppsala, the university city. After moving to the Swedish capital of Stockholm he gained a reputation as a notable poet and made most of his income from this. Unruly behaviour was always a part of his life and it may also have been what ended it. He was killed in a duel, by lieutenant Storm, in the Old Town of Stockholm, after an argument in a beer cellar. He was only 36 years old. Fifteen years after his death his collected works were published for the first time, probably at the instigation of King Karl XI's field chaplain Haquin Spegel.
