The Mannerheim Foundation
C.G.E. Mannerheim, the Marshal of Finland, (1867-1951) served as the commander of the Finnish forces during the Second World War and as the President of the Republic of Finland. Marshall Mannerheim made significant contributions to Finnish independence, politics, and society at large. The Mannerheim Foundation manages the estate of Marshall Mannerheim in accordance with its statutes.
