Fredrik Jakob Tage Ulfstand Rosencrantz (26 October 1879 – 15 April 1957) was a Swedish Army captain and horse rider who competed in the 1912 Summer Olympics. He was a member of the Swedish team that won the gold medal in jumping; however, he was not awarded a medal because only three best riders from each team were counted, and he placed fourth.[1][2]

Rosencrantz became cavalry captain (ryttmästare) in 1913 and was placed in the Life Regiment Hussars' reserve in 1928.[3]
