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)


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)

Arbitrary move[edit]

The recent move of this article needs to be reversed, or else all the Swedish kings and princes named Karl who lived before 1900 need to be moved from Charles ... to "Karl ...". --SergeWoodzing (talk) 13:00, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Current naming conventions imply that you are correct, that it should remain "Carl." I will move it back, but if it happens again I would suggest getting consensus from the WikiProjects about how these articles should all be named. Primefac (talk) 13:26, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
