Page maintained by
the Sweden Project

The purpose of this category is to list the acknowledged historical rulers of Sweden, as is listed by the Swedish Royal Court, starting with Erik Segersäll who ruled abt. 970 - 995.

A monarch is a sovereign head of state in a monarchy. Therefore this category should not be used for semi-legendary kings or kings from the Norse sagas.

The first Swedish kings to use serial numbers was Erik XIV and his younger brother Karl IX. They based their numbers on theologist Johannes Magnus' text Historia de omnibus gothorum sveonumque regibus (History about all Geats' and Swedes' kings). Johannes Magnus included the Yngling kings and other more or less fictional kings and this gives the high serial numbers for Erik and Karl.

(The previous, very long, content of this category has been moved to a free-space page All alleged rulers and kings in what now is modern day Sweden.)

This category is managed by the Sweden Project in association with the Categorization Project. For assistance with this or related categories ask in G2G making sure to tag your question with both categorization and Sweden.
