Johann Weikhard Freiherr von Valvasor

A Slovenian nobleman, a scholar and polymath, and a Fellow of The Royal Society, which gives Soldier as his profession and Austrian as his nationality. Neither the exact day nor the actual place of his birth are known, but from the fact that his baptism was registered at St. Nicholas Church in Ljubljana it appears very likely that he was also born in Ljubljana, Carniola (present-day Slovenia) in May 1641.see more
