Cape Alexander ( in Argentina Cabo Suecia , Spanish for 'Cape Sweden') is the cape at the southern end of the Churchill Peninsula , which delimits the entrance to Cabinet Inlet on the Foyn coast of the Antarctic Graham Land. It also marks the southern end of the Oskar II coast .
The Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey mapped it in 1947 and in December of the same year aerial photographs were taken by participants in the American Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (1947–1948). The survey named the cape after Albert Alexander, 1st Earl Alexander of Hillsborough (1885–1965), then First Lord of the British Admiralty .
