Jammers Minde (literally A Memory of Lament), translated into English as Memoirs of Leonora Christina, is an autobiography completed in the 1680s by Leonora Christina, daughter of Christian IV of Denmark and Kirsten Munk. The work relates a partly fictionalized account of Christina's time during captivity, with a detailed personal account of prison life. It was first published in 1869, and is included in the Danish Culture Canon. It is considered to be Denmark's most important 17th-century prose work. The manuscript was acquired by the Danish State in 1920.
