Christian Braunmann Tullin

Christian Braunmann Tullin (6 September 1728 – 21 January 1765) was a Norwegian businessman and poet. He was regarded as one of Denmark-Norway's most important poetic talents by his contemporaries.[1]


Tullin was born in Christiania (now Oslo), Norway. His parents were Gulbrand Hansen Tullins (1694-1742) and Ragnhild Hansdatter Dehli (1695-1765). His father, who originated in the rural district of Ringebu, had become a wealthy merchant. Tullin attended Christiania Cathedral School and later graduated from the University of Copenhagen. Initially he had studied theology. However, after his father's death, his mother married Claus Therkelsen Koefoed, who was a customs official. Together with his step-father, in 1750 Tullin started a company which produced powder, starch and nails. He became city manager for Christiania from 1763 and was also Chairman of the Board of Customs and Excise Service (Oslo regiontollsted).[2][3][4]

Personal life[edit]

In 1760, he married Mette Feddersen Kruckow (1725-1809). She was a niece of Nicolai Feddersen (1699-1769), who was magistrate president of Christiania, and his wife Ditlevine Feddersen.[5]


His Samtlige Skrifter (Complete Writings) were issued in Copenhagen in 1770–1773 (three volumes). The first volume contained his poetry, while the two others contained essays.[3]
