Friedrich Wilhelm Rembert von Berg
Count Friedrich Wilhelm Rembert von Berg (Russian: Фёдор Фёдорович Берг Graf Fyodor Fyodorovich Berg; 15 May 1794 – 6 January 1874) was a Russian Field Marshal, and the Governor-General of Finland from 1855 to 1861.
He was also the last Namestnik of the Kingdom of Poland (1863–1874). He was crucial in crushing the Polish January Uprising and carrying out repressions and russification policies afterwards. Polish insurgents carried out an unsuccessful assassination attempt on him on 19 September 1863.
He died in Saint Petersburg.
In 1856 Fredrik Wilhelm adopted his brother's two sons:
- Friedrich Georg Magnus von Berg (1845–1938), "The count of rye", developer of Estonian agriculture
- Georg Erik Rembert Berg (1849–1920), Finnish general in the Imperial Russian Army
