I don't think so as King Carl Gustaf belongs to the House of Bernadotte, which is of French origins and has no Swedish connection IIRC. Also Sweden has been ruled by two different houses before that; the Houses of Vasa and Holstein-Glottorp. Then again, Britain has been ruled by a number of houses and apparently HM is somehow related to all of them, but I think that's a different story. I could be wrong though as I'm far from an expert on this subject and this post was all written from memory.

Yes he is, when Josephine of Leuchtenberg and Victoria of Baden married in to the royal family family they brought Vasa blood with them, in fact they were each called the Vasa Princess at court

Thanks for the information - I overlooked Josephine and Victoria when posting!

There have been several royal Houses of Sweden, Bernadotte, Vasa and Holstein-Gottorp are only three of about ten different houses. Here is a complete list of known Swedish monarchs: List of Swedish monarchs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I knew that, I just gave those examples as they're the most well known (I don't know how true this is though as I'm not Swedish) and recent royal houses.

King Gustav III founded some of Sweden's national cultural institutions.
These include the Royal Opera House, the Royal Theatre of Drama and the Swedish Academy.

Hm, I managed to miss this thread until now. I guess I'll make a list of all the consorts from the last four dynasties.

The Vasa dynasty (1523 - 1654)
1: Gustav I (commonly known as Gustav Vasa) had three queen consort: Katarina of Sachsen-Lauenburg, Margareta Leijonhufvud and Katarina Stenbock.
2: Erik XIV's queen consort was Karin Månsdotter.
3: Johan III had two queen consorts: Katarina Jagellonica and (2) Gunilla Bielke.
4: Sigismund's queen consort was Anne of Austria*.
5: Carl IX's queen consort was Christina of Holstein-Gottorp*.
6: Gustav II's queen consort was Maria Eleonora of Brandenburg.
7: Christina never got married.

* = Sigismund would get re-married to Anne's sister (!) Constantia, but he was no longer king of Sweden at the time, so she was never queen of Sweden. They still had Poland though.
* = Carl had previously been married to Maria of Pfalz, but she died before he became king.

The Pfalz & Hessen dynasties (1654 - 1751)
1: Carl X Gustav's queen consort was Hedvig Eleonora of Holstein-Gottorp.
2: Carl XI's queen consort was Ulrika Eleonora of Denmark.
3: Carl XII never got married.
4: Ulrika Eleonora's prince consort was Fredrik of Hessen. She later chose to abdicate and let him become king, suddenly making her his queen consort! *

*
Fredrik had previously been married to Lovisa Dorothea of Prussia, but it was only through his later marriage to Ulrika Eleonora that he could become the king of Sweden.

The Holstein-Gottorp dynasty (1751 - 1818)
1: Adolf Fredrik's queen consort was Lovisa Ulrika of Prussia.
2: Gustav III's queen consort was Sofia Magdalena of Denmark.
3: Gustav IV Adolf's queen consort was Fredrika of Baden.
4: Carl XIII's queen consort was Charlotta of Oldenburg.

The Bernadotte dynasty (1818 - present)
1: Carl XIV Johan's queen consort to Desirée Clary.
2: Oscar I's queen consort was Josephine of Leuchtenberg.
3: Carl XV's queen consort was Louise of the Netherlands.
4: Oscar II's queen consort was Sophia of Nassau.
5: Gustav V's queen consort was Victoria of Baden.
6: Gustav VI Adolf's queen consort was Louise Mountbatten*.
7: Carl XVI Gustav's queen consort is Silvia Sommerlath.

* Gustav Adolf had previously been married to Margaret of Connaught, but she died before he became king.
