About Anthony de Coucheron

Anthony Coucheron (also recorded as Anton Coucheron or Anthony Willemsen) was an engineering officer born about 1650 (probably in Holland), and died March 14, 1689 at Akershus fortress, Christiania, Norway. Anthony Coucheron played an important role in history of Norwegian and Danish fortifications. As Sweden grew to be a great power in the 17th century, there were frequent wars in the Baltic region, and conflict was common along the borders between Sweden & Denmark-Norway. Easy invasions routes from Sweden were fortified on the Danish-Norwegian border with new or upgraded fortresses during this period, effectively establishing the modern borders between Norway & Sweden. Anthony Coucheron played a major role in fortification of the border, both in Norway and Denmark In addition, he participated with honor in combat during the Gyldenløve War.
