Fältmarskalk (Field Marshal) was a Swedish military rank equivalent to present day NATO OF-10, and from the end of the 16th century to 1824, 77 persons have held this rank, sometimes written as General Fältmarskalk (General Field Marshal, or German equivalent Generalfeldmarschall). It was de jure a rank in Sweden until the reform of 1972. Riksmarskalk (Marshal of the Realm) was earlier the most senior military officer in Sweden (still second to the Monarch), but is now a senior officer of the Royal Court.
