Johann Heinrich von Dünewald’s parents were Lorenz and Katharina von Dünewald. He was first in Swedish, later in imperial service. He distinguished himself in the Battle of St. Gotthard in 1664. He became a major general and was given command of a cuirassier regiment in 1670, which he was to lead for over twenty years. He later helped to defeat the French at Sasbach under Raimondo Montecuccoli and was therefore elevated to the rank of count by Emperor Leopold I in 1675 and became a general of the cavalry.
