Älvsborg ransom was an indemnity, stipulated in the Treaty of Knäred 1613, that would redeem Älvsborg Castle (in Gothenburg, Sweden) from Danish military occupation of the Kalmar War. According to the treaty, the ransom was one million rixdollars. The ransom would be financed by a nationwide tax, which would be paid during each of the six years 1613–1618 by the entire population of Sweden. The Danes did not only hold Älvsborg Castle as a collateral for the ransom, but also the towns of Nya Lödöse, Old Lödöse and Gothenburg, as well as seven hundreds of Västergötland. Yet, since the return of Älvsborg was uppermost in the mind of the government, the ransom and the tax to pay for it has in history been named after this castle.

  • El rescate de Älvsborg fue una indemnización estipulada en el tratado de Knäred de 1613 para levantar la ocupación militar danesa del castillo de (en Gotemburgo, Suecia) tras la guerra de Kalmar. Según el tratado, el rescate era de un millón rixdollars, que fueron financiados mediante un impuesto pagado durante cada uno de los seis siguientes años 1613–1618 por la población de Suecia.​ Los daneses no sólo retuvieron Älvsborg como garantía sino también las ciudades de Nya Lödöse, Lödöse y Gotemburgo, así como siete härader de Västergötland. Aun así, dado que Älvsborg era la principal posición estratégica al permitir el acceso sueco al Atlántico y fue el motivo por el cual los suecos aceptaron las duras condiciones, ha sido habitualmente usado para llamar al pago.​ (es)
