King Adolf Fredrik (1710-1771)

On February 12, 1771 king Adolf Fredrik, Adolf Frederick, King of Sweden - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , died after having eaten a large evening meal. He is most known in Sweden for having eating too many hetvägg (semlor) during his last meal and for being replaced by the government with a name stamp for signing royal documents, as he was considered being uninterested of ruling. He was the father of king Gustav III and king Karl XIII, and husband of Louisa Ulrika of Prussia, Louisa Ulrika of Prussia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Coup of 1756 was an attempted coup d'etat planned by Queen Louisa Ulrika, King Adolf Frederick's wife, to abolish the rule of the Riksdag of the Estates and reinstate absolute monarchy in Sweden.
