The Battle of Gemäuerthof (present-day Murmuiža, 80 km south-west of Riga, Latvia) on July 16, 1705 was a battle in the Great Northern War. The Swedish forces (about 7,000 soldiers) under Adam Ludwig Lewenhaupt fought a Russian army (about 12,000 soldiers) under Boris Sheremetyev. The Swedes, exhausted after forced marching, went to camp and were cooking supper when the news came of a large Russian army nearby. The Swedes quickly deployed into battle formation and, encouraged by General Lewenhaupt, attacked the Russians. Although suffering severe setbacks on their right flank, the assault continued. On the left, the Swedish cavalry charged and broke the Russians. The infantry in the centre fired carefully at point-blank range and then charged, pushing their foes back in disorder. The battle ended in a confused melee, which was eventually won by the Swedes. The Russian cavalry withdrew while the infantry was destroyed by a combined-arms assault. The Swedes were victorious, but the victory was only symbolic. In August, the Russians conquered Courland.
Losses Swedes: 800 killed, 1000 wounded, Russians: 2,000–6,000 killed and wounded.

Slaget vid Gemauerthof, slag under stora nordiska kriget den 16 juli 1705 där en svensk armé (7000 man) under generalmajor Adam Ludvig Lewenhaupt besegrade en rysk armé (12000 man) under fältmarskalk Boris Sjeremetiev utanför Gemauerthof (let. Murmuiža) i nuvarande Lettland. Omkring 800 – 900 svenskar dödades och runt 1000 sårades. De ryska förlusterna är svårare att beräkna, men omkring 2000 tros ha dödats och ungefär lika många sårats. Bland de sårade på den ryska sidan fanns Sjeremetjev, vilken dock redan i augusti med en stor armé gick in i Kurland. Vid det laget var Lewenhaupts armé inte längre i stridsdugligt skick, varför han drog sig tillbaka mot Riga, varpå Sjeremetjev intog Bauske och Mitau.
