Erik XIV played the lute. He wrote his own music.
Eric XIV was born December 13th, 1533.
His father was King Gustav (1496-1560).
His mother was Catherine of Saxe-Lauenburg (1513-1535).
Eric XIV's stepmother was Margaret Leijonhufvud (1516-1555).
She was a Swedish noblewoman.

After the meeting of parliament in Stockholm, Sweden in 1560,
Eric XIV received the title of "hereditary king".
In 1567 King Eric XIV married Karin Mansdotter.
In 1568 Karin was made a member of the aristocracy and was crowned Queen of Sweden.
Katarina was engaged when Gustav I decided he would wed her.
Her engagement to her first fiancé was broken.
As Crown Prince of Sweden, Eric learned that his brother, Duke John of Finland, who acted as Eric's emissary, had begun to woo Queen Elizabeth I of England on his (John's) own behalf.
Eric recalled his brother John.
Eric sent a new ambassador, Nicholas Guildenstiern.
In Elizabeth Virgin Queen, Philippa Jones wrote:

In case Eric should actually make good on his promise to come to England (to woo Queen Elizabeth I), plans were drawn up for his reception.
For a further two years, the kingdom planned and waited as Eric threatened to come to England to woo her in person and bombarded her with expensive gifts. Eventually he realized that she would never succumb to his blandishments and his attentions ceased.

Margareta Leijonhuvud died in August 1551, and a year later, in August 1552 king Gustav Vasa (age 56) married the 17-year old Katarina Gustavsdotter Stenbock, who was the daughter of of Margareta's sister Brita. At that time Erik was two years older than his new stepmother, and the oldest of Katarina's cousins/stepchildren, Johan, was only two years younger than her.

It was under dramatic circumstances in December 1574 that Erik XIV was taken from the national jail in Västerĺs to Örbyhus in Uppland.
