  • Notes 
    • King 1809-1818
      Duke of Södermanland 11 of September 1772. King of Sweden 6 of June 1809. Crowned in Stockholm 29 of June 1809. King of Norway 4 of November 1814.
      Carl XIII became King after his nephew Gustaf IV Adolf had been deposed. He accepted a new constitution, which stipulated that the power shoul be divided between the King and the Parliament.
      Since Carl XIII had no children, a Crown Prince had to be elected. The Parliament elected the Danish Prince Kristian August of Augustenborg, and he changed his name to Carl August. In May 1810 Carl August died of stroke. False rumours said that he had been murdered by the Gustavians, who wanted Gustaf IV Adolf's son Gustaf elected. As a result of the rumours, the highest member of the Royal Court, Count Axel von Fersen (a Gustavian), was lynched.
      Several candidates were now discussed: Prince Fredrik Kristian of Augustenborg, King Fredrik VI of Denmark, Prince Kristian Fredrik of Denmark and some Prince of Oldenburg. But the Riksdag elected Jean Baptiste Bernadotte, formerly one of Napoleon´s marshals, who changed his name to Carl Johan and was adopted by Carl XIII.
      Carl XIII was thus succeded by Carl XIV Johan.
