Major Fritz Cronman (circa 1640 - circa 1680) of the Swedish Empire. He was a Swedish diplomat to the Tsardom of Russia from 1668 to 1669. His extant diary and letters contain detailed information on the court of Ivan V of Russia.

Biography: He was born in Swedish Livonia to Hans Detterman Croman. He participated in the border commission with Russia in Keksholm, but the negotiations ended when the Russian commissioners walked out on the talks. On September 26, 1668 he was appointed as the Swedish diplomat to the Tsardom of Russia under Ivan V of Russia. On October 8, 1668 he sailed to Finland and then traveled overland to Narva. On November 10, 1668 he arrived at the Russian border at Orlina, where he was escorted to Novgorod. In his letter from Novgorod to the Swedish government he writes: "Russians inevitably must be impelled to such unusual höflighetsbetygelser either under pressure from the enemy side or from fear of his friends." He arrived in Moscow on December 28, 1668. His Swedish entourage consisted of 35 people. While in Russia, he made a copy of the Godunov map. He married Christina Ottiliana Börner and had a daughter, Charlotta Cronman, who married Henrik Gotthard von Buddenbrock (1648-1727). Charlotta and Henrick had as their son, Henrik Magnus Buddenbrock.
