King Canutethe Dane, 1732. Portrait of Cnut the Great in an oval frame surmounted by a coat of arms, with runes, flaming torches, swords, arrows and coins. Below is a vignette illustrating Cnut sitting in his throne as the tide comes in. He supposedly demonstrated to flattering courtiers that being a mere human, the sea would not obey him, and God alone can command the tides.

(Salomon) August Andree (1854-1897), Swedish engineer and balloonist, 1897. In 1897 Andree made an attempt to reach the North Pole by balloon. Together with two colleagues, Nils Strindberg and Knut Fraenkel, he took off from Spitzbergen, but the balloon was forced down onto the ice by the weight of ice accumulating on the outside of the balloon in a freezing fog. Rescue attempts failed to find the missing explorers, whose bodies were not located until 1930. Theories as to how they died include exposure, the effects of eating infected polar bear meat, or carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty stove. Medal commemorating the expedition bearing portraits of Andree together with his two companions
