About Henrik Ibsen
Henrik Johan Ibsen made a name for himself as one of the most important and influential playwrights of the 19th century. The Norwegian playwright began writing plays in 1850. However, he failed to grab attention with any of them until 15 years later through the critically-acclaimed “Brand”. He also worked as a theatre director between 1858 and 1864. His other famous plays include “The Wild Duck”, “Peer Gynt” and “A Doll’s House”.
The characters Jon Gynt and Ase in his play “Peer Gynt” were modelled after his father, Knud Ibsen and his mother, Marichen Altenburg, respectively. He had a sister called Hedvig.
Henrik was the father of the late Norwegian Prime Minister Sigurd Ibsen. He was married to Suzannah Thoreson.
He was decorated with the Grand Crosses of the Order of St. Olav, Danish Order of the Dannebrog and Swedish Order of the Polar Star.
