The man on the horse is Magnus Stenbock, Swedish military hero of 16th/early 17th century. He commanded the Swedish force in the last battle between Denmark and Sweden, the battle of Helsingborg, in 1710. As an aside, "stenbock" is the Ibex or Alpine mountain goat :-)
According to Wikipedia:
"He was a great favorite with Charles XII in the earlier campaigns, but later the two drifted somewhat apart. It is recorded that the king, before whom General Lagercrona accused Stenbock of drunkenness, replied that Stenbock drunk was more capable of giving orders than Lagercrona sober.
His activities were not confined to war and diplomacy; the University of Lund was under his care as Chancellor for some years, and he had no mean skill as a painter and a poet. He became Privy Councillor in 1710, and Charles gave him his field marshal's baton in 1712."
