Karl XIII (1748-1818) was King of Sweden from 1809 to 1818.
He was the second son of King Adolf Frederick of Sweden and Queen Louisa Ulrika.

In 1772 Prince Karl cooperated in the revolutionary plans of his elder brother, King Gustav III of Sweden.
Karl was appointed Duke of Sodermanland as a sign of recognition.
Karl was given several official tasks during his period as Duke of Sodermanland.
He served as regent in 1777 when King Gustav III stayed in Russia.
In 1780 Karl served as formal chief commander during Gustav III's stay in Spa.

His uncle, Prince Karl, the Duke of Sodermanland, acted as regent.
Karl was the regent from 1792 to 1796.
Karl became the King of Sweden in 1809.
