There is also a Nordic connection with Queen's House Greenwich, as it was built for Queen Anne, born Princess of Denmark, the wife of King James VI and I.
Olaudah Equiano was known during most of his life as Gustavus Vassa, named after Gustav Vasa, who was elected King of Sweden (and Finland) 500 years ago, this year, hence the Nordic connection, inspiring us to discover more about Olaudah Equiano, as the last but not least of our 500th anniversary events this year.
This event is organised by the Anglo-Finnish Society jointly with the Anglo-Swedish Society.
