The Riddarholmen Church

The Riddarholmen Church is the final resting place of the Swedish kings, and is Stockholm's only preserved mediaeval abbey. The church is open during the summer season, with an annual programme of concerts.
With the one exception of Queen Christina, all succeeding rulers of Sweden from Gustav II Adolf (d. 1632) to Gustaf V (d. 1950) are buried in the Riddarholmen Church. Kings from the middle ages are also buried here such as Magnus Ladulås and Karl Knutson Bonde (d. 1470).
The church is foremost a burial and memorial church, which is maintained by the Office of the Marshal of the Realm and the National Property Board (SFV).

The current church has three naves but originally had two, with the south side aisle having been added in the mid-15th century.

Seraphim Toll
The royal burial church at Riddarholmen also houses the Coats of arms of deceased Seraphim Knights. The deceased Knight is honoured with a Seraphim toll the same day as the funeral service takes place.

The grave of Christ
The Riddarholmen Church's newest addition is also one of the church's oldest objects: a wooden sculpture of Christ, dating from around the year 1400. During the Middle Ages, it was used in the Passion Play at Easter.

The Riddarholmen Church was originally the church of the Franciscan monastery in Stockholm which survived until the Swedish Reformation when it was dissolved but the church was preserved.

On July 28th, 1835 disaster struck when the church spire was struck by lightning and the Spire and upper church caught fire but the interior of the church was saved.The bell tower with five bells which were donated by Queen Kristina were destroyed but the church was restored.

This engraving from 1524 shows the old Riddarholmen Church and monastic buildings shortly before the Friary was dissolved during the Swedish Reformation.




Another from 1696 shows the interior of the church with the tombs of Magnus III and of Carl II

Last chance for the season to visit Riddarholmen Church
Closest to the chancel in Riddarholmen Church is "The Haga Wall" which was created in 1979 to honor the members of the royal family who rest at the Royal Cemetery in Haga Park. On the wall hang Coat of Arms that belonged to Gustaf VI Adolf and his two spouses, Crown Princess Margareta and Queen Louise, and below them Prince Carl and Princess Ingeborg, Prince Gustaf Adolf and Princess Sibylla and Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian. Crown Princess Margareta's Coat of Arms, however, differs from the others, as it is not a Seraphim shield. When Margaret died in 1920, the women of the royal family could not carry the Order of Seraphim, with the exception of the Queen. It was not changed until 1952, at the initiative of Queen Louise.
For the inauguration of The Haga Wall, it was decided instead to create an imaginary Coat of Arms to honor Crown Princess Margareta. It consists of her Coat of Arms as Swedish princess and Duchess of Scania with her British Coat of Arms as heart shield, and over an open crown prince crown. Instead of the Seraphim weapon's blue ribbon, a wreath of white daisies is seen around the shield - in English called Daisy, Margareta's favorite flowers and also her nickname in the family. Above the Seraphim Coat of Arms, is places artist Liss Eriksson's bronze relief 'Time's. The starting point for the artwork is Dante Alighieri's 'The Divine Comedy'.
Riddarholmen Church is open daily until September 30.
