Outside of the Stockholm City Hall there is what looks like a Golden Mummy laying on a sheltered granite slab. This is the grave of Birger Jarl. Who is Birger Jarl? Birger Jarl or also known as Birger Magnusson, was an important Swedish Statesman know as Jarl of Sweden. Jarl was very instrumental in the consolidation of Sweden. He lived from 1210 to 1266. Along with being an important statesman he led the second Swedish Crusade which established Swedish rule in Finland and it is said that he founded Stockholm as the Swedish Capitol. Besides the "mummy" outside the City Hall there are several other statues and the views are beautiful.
