Untitled[edit]

LOL, I can see what you're after but no..."A dragoon colonel sublimated into genius" is how he was described by a swedish writer in the early 20thcentury. The guy was certainly made for war, it's hard to imagine him as king in peacetime. Strausszek December 1, 2008 23:47 (CET)

Heir to the throne[edit]

This section uses the spelling Kristina in the first sentence, then switches to Christina in the next. I think it would make sense to use one or the other unless there is good reason to switch mid-paragraph. Oswald Glinkmeyer (talk) 02:25, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

I went ahead and made the change to Christina as this seems to be most common English spelling. Either way, I think uniformity is preferred unless there is a good reason to switch in the middle of the article. Oswald Glinkmeyer (talk) 20:00, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

numbering[edit]

Referring to Karl Gustav as Charles X Gustav is a modern invention. The Swedish kings Erik XIV (1560-68) and Charles IX (1604-1611) took their numbers after studying a highly fictitious History of Sweden. He was actually Charles IV Gustav.

This is a bit cryptic; the phrase "a modern invention" would normally mean that he was not so known in his own time, but the next sentence suggests that he was. —Tamfang (talk) 18:08, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
