Adam Gottlob Oehlenschlager Biography
Adam Gottlob Oehlenschläger (November 14, 1779 - January 20, 1850) was a Danish poet and playwright. He introduced romanticism in Danish literature.

In 1829 he was crowned the "king of Nordic poetry" (by Esaias Tegnér, who would be his Swedish parallel) in the cathedral of Lund, Sweden, based on a vast production of poetry, theatre plays and prose, inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Gottlieb Fichte, and Friedrich von Schelling. See also Jens Immanuel Baggesen.

He wrote the song "Der er et yndigt land", which is now the national anthem of Denmark.
