He was killed in Norway. He was laying siege to the fortress of Fredriksten as part of the Great North war. He was killed while he was inspecting his trenches, hit in the head by a projectile. The siege, and basically the Great North war, ended with his death. His armies retreated following his death.

He was unmarried, and the throne passed to his sister Ulrika Eleonora.


And on the 150th anniversary of his demise, November 30 1868, his statue was innaugerated in the Kungsan in Stockholm.

It wasn't as easy as the throne passing to his sister Ulrika Eleonora. While there was no clear succession everyone expected his nephew The Duke Karl Frederick of Holstein-Gottorp. Thanks to the quick action taken by Prince Frederick of Hesse-Kassel his wife Ulrika Eleonora was surprisingly elected queen by the Parliament.
Karl Frederick and his supporters were outraged but in practice he remained heir to the throne until he married in Grand Duchess Anna Petrovna of Russia in 1724. Their son eventually became Tsar Peter III.

Maria Eleonora of Brandenburg was the mother of Queen Christina,though I'm not sure they were very close.

They weren't. Maria Eleonora was unstable even before the death of her husband and once he was killed she went mad from grief. The Queen Dowager was denied a place in the Regency council of her daughter and Queen Christina was raised by her paternal aunt Princess Catherine of Pfalz-Zweibrücken according to the will of her father, King Gustav II Adolf. Because of her being so unstable the Regency council forbade her any access to her daughter and had her banished to Gripsholm Castle. As Christina grew older she acted as an intermediary between her mother and the Regency council a few times. Although the relationship became at best cordial Christina kept her mother at an arms length and treated her with the same overbearingness as any man of the time would have treated a troublesome female relative.

December 4 1676 Charles XI led the Swedish army in the Battle of Lund against the larger forces of Danish King Christian V. (13,000 Danes/Dutch to 8,000 Swedes). It is known as the bloodiest battle in Scandinavian history. The Swedish army was nearly defeated, when at sundown Charles returned with his calvary and turned the tide. The Danish general tried to cover the retreating Danish infantry (the horseman had fled already), but many of the Dane and Dutch infantry were slaughtered before the Swedish general called a ceasefire.


By all accounts, 9300 died, though some of those were Danes who drowned, and others died of injuries later. About 6000 Danes were killed (another 2000 captured). The Dutch soldiers were the worst hit. Of the 1300 who joined the battle, only a few dozen survived.
