John Hepburn (1598-1636) was a 17th century Scottish soldier. He served under Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden for a time during the Thirty Years' War, but a conflict arose over Hepburn's Catholicism, and he left the king's service. He served France until his death in battle in 1636.

John Hepburn in 1632Edit

John Hepburn proved critical at the Battle of Breitenfeld, leading a brigade in support of Gustav Horn.

In the new timeline, Gustavus apologized to Hepburn[1], and Hepburn remained in his service. He was present at the Battle of Lake Bledno[2], but it is not clear whether or not he survived.
