Description

Jean-Gaspard de Cicignon was born in 1622 in Oberwampach in northern Luxembourg. He entered the Danish military service as an officer in 1657 and became Commandant of Bergenhus fortress in Norway in the early 1660s, which he extended. When the Norwegian city of Trondheim was all but burned to the ground overnight in April 1681, it was again fortification architect Jean-Gaspard de Cicignon who drew up a plan to improve fire safety. Jean-Gaspard de Cicignon is one of the few Luxembourg nobles who has gained international renown. He died in 1696 in Fredrikstad in Norway.
