Ingegerd Birgersdotter of Bjelbo was Queen of Sweden as the second wife of King Sverker II of Sweden.
In c.1200 she was married to King Sverker after the demise of his first consort Benedicta, and became Queen of Sweden directly upon her marriage.
She was Queen Consort from 1200 to 1208.

Gustav III's toy carriage - a new addition to Livrustkammarens/Royal Armoury's collections. It has been made in Stockholm around 1750.

One of the favorite pastimes of King Adolphus Frederick, who reigned from 1751 to 1771, was to make snuffboxes.

What privileges did King Charles VII of Sweden, who reigned 1161-1167, donate to Vreta Abbey and Nydala Abbey?

Gustav III:

At Facebook of the Royal Armoury
"You want to see it. The kolt of the Order of Seraphim with the accompanying hat, which the 2-year-old Prince Gustav was wearing when he was knighted. We have it."

Ulrika Eleonora was Queen Regnant of Sweden from 1718 to 1720. Why did the Riksdag oppose her request for her husband Prince Frederick of Hesse to be made co-monarch?

Nationalmuseum has acquired a unique gold box bearing a portrait by the court enameller, Johan Georg Henrichsen, of King Gustav III. The box was given by the king as a gift to John Mackenzie, a Scottish officer, when he retired from the Swedish army in 1778. Very few such tokens of royal favour have survived intact, which is what makes this gold box unique.

I don't think there were ever joint Monarchs in Sweden prior to her requests.
