The Battle of Landskrona

The Battle of Landskrona was fought on the Ylleshed moor, outside the town of Landskrona, in southern Sweden on July 14, 1677, between Sweden and Denmark.

The War in Scania (Skåne), 1675-1679 was Denmark´s campaign to regain the provinces of Skåne, Halland and Blekinge, which had been lost to Sweden in the1658 Peace of Roskilde. While the Battle of Lund on 4 December 1676 was of decisive importance to the outcome of the war, the Battle of Landskrona on 14 July 1677 played a significant part, too. As a result of the 1679 Peace of Lund, Sweden retained the provinces.

The monument of the Battle is found just north of Billeberga, Skåne, southern Sweden by road 17. (Private Photo)
