'''Johann Christian Ludwig Hellwig''' ([[November 8]], [[1743]], [[Garz]], [[Rügen]] - [[October 10]], [[1831]]) was a [[German]] [[entomologist]].
After studies of [[mathematics]] and [[natural history]] at the university of [[Frankfurt]], he became, in 1766, adviser to prince [[Wilhelm Adolf von Braunschweig]] at the time of his voyage in the south of Russia.
His work in the taxonomy of the insects in collaboration with Illiger and Hoffmannsegg is famous and was the entomological origin of the collections of the [[Humboldt Museum|University of Berlin]].
He was also the inventor of "Kriegsspiel" (literally war game), an alternative to a set of [military[chess]] failures which had much success in its time.
