Notes: Akero Manor is a manor in Sodermanland, Sweden. Although an estate with a history going back to the Middle Ages, the presently visible manor house complex was commissioned in 1748 by Carl Gustaf Tessin, and designed by Carl Harleman. It is a fine example of Rococo manor house architecture in Sweden.The estate is one of the oldest in Sodermanland, dating from the 13th century. During the 16th century, the owners at the time, the Bielke family, erected a renaissance manor house. About a hundred years later, the building was damaged by fire and never completely restored. In 1748 Carl Gustaf Tessin bought the estate. He ordered the old, damaged buildings to be demolished and commissioned a new building to be built to the designs by Carl Harleman. Louis-Joseph Le Lorrain was commissioned to design the interiors.
