He died in captivity at Örbyhus Castle after eating a portion of pea soup poisoned by his captors with written permission by his usurping brother, King Johan III.

February 29 1720 Ulrika Eleanor abdicated in favor of her husband Frederik. She wished to reign as co rulers like Mary and William in the Uk but it wasn’t allowed so she abdicated in his favor. Frederik was Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel. She was his second wife. He was the first Swedish king to have an official mistress which didn’t sit well with his wife or court. Ulrika died of small pox in 1741 having born no children. Her husband had no legitimate children from either marriage. He was succeeded by his brother William in Hesse Kassel and Adolph Frederick in Sweden.

March 8 1844 demise of Charles XIV John of Sweden. Born in France, Jean Bernadotte would be the first Bernadotte king of Sweden. The son of an attorney he was apprenticed as one until his father died when he was 17. He instead joined the French army and rose through the ranks.

Charles XIII was in need of an heir. He was elderly and the only children with his wife died in infancy. His adopted heir died as well. Though a Danish prince was top choice Napoleon pushed for Eugene to be heir or failing that one if his brothers or nephews. Eugene refused to leave Italy and convert and none of napoleons brothers wanted to move to Sweden. His nephews were too young. Jean was a suggestion by a minor noble and surprisingly got the vote. Though Charles didn’t approve he and his wife eventually did come to like Jean who moved to Sweden and eventually served as regent for the informer king.

Jean was married to Desiree Clary, former fiancé of Napoleon. Her sister Julia was married to Napoleons older brother Joseph. Desiree was not fond of Sweden and didn’t get along with the queen. She did get along with one of the dowager queens Sophia Magdalena. Unlike her husband and son she did not convey and during her crown princess days spent years in France.

Jean was 81 when he died from a stroke. He was succeeded by son Oscar I. Oscar having been born in France was named Joseph Francois Oscar. Joseph was in honour of his uncle who was also one of his godfathers. Napoleon who was also godfather chose Oscar. Oscar would end up married to the man who turned down the Swedish throne leading to his father becoming king. He married Josephine of Leuchtenberg. Josephine was the daughter of napoleons stepson Eugene and was named in honour of her grandmother empress Josephine.

March 16, 1792 Gustav III of Sweden was shot. He had attended a masquerade ball at the royal opera house that evening. Earlier in the evening he received a threatening letter from the colonel of the life guards. It was not taken seriously as he had been receiving letters for years.

The king made jest of it. He sat in an open opera box and made comment about it would be the opportune time to shoot him. And then later took a walk around the theater. He was stopped on stage by masked men who made it impossible for him to continue. Jacob Johan Anckarström approached him with a gun and pistol. Since the king had bent back to speak to his captain, he was shot at an odd angle and survived the attack. Jacob was flogged, had his hand cut off, beheaded and then quartered for his crimes. Others were imprisoned or exiled instead.

The king though suffered a severe infection and would die on March 29.

He was succeeded by his son Gustav IV Adolf who was an inept leader. He was forced to abdicate in 1809. He did it voluntarily to try and pass the throne to his son but the government declared he forefeited it for his family. His Uncle Charles, the younger brother of Gustaf III took the throne, becoming Charles XIII. Charles would of course be succeeded by the French Bernadotte family.
