This needs disambiguating - the UK has an Act of Succession as well, to name but one. PML. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 2003-04-15


Since the Swedish church is no longer a state church it seems awfully odd to use a headline called Luthern State Church. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 2006-11-19

Also it contains factual errors, I for one was born 1984 but not into the church even as my parents was part of the church. Zorbeltuss (talk) 06:23, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. Never heard of "Luthern" anyway. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 03:55, 5 September 2010 (UTC)


Sweden does not have a 'constitution' per se. Title of article needs to be changed. - Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 03:55, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

No. A late reply, but just to set the record straight, for anyone who might be confused about this: It may not be called a "constitution" (Swedish: konstitution) in Swedish, but the four Fundamental Laws are more often than not collectively called "grundlagar" in Swedish, which translates to "constitutional laws", and I think it's a widely accepted fact that they, together with the Riksdag Act, form the "Constitution of Sweden". If this wasn't true, then why does the Riksdag have a page on the constitution? The end. Gavleson (talk) 17:54, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
The end? You didn't answer your own question. Constitution might be the word that best translates the concept, but the makeup of the Swedish constitution and that of other nations are widely different.
Germany also calls theirs a 'basic law', and it translates as basic law. This article should be moved to Basic Law of Sweden and this page changed to redirect to it. Hentheden (talk) 14:26, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

NOTA BENE: Very important inter-national issue and article.

The article definetly needs to display that swedes, many Swedes, living in Sweden, live under the supposition that their four "grundlagar" is their, and Swedens constitution. Probably a constitution in Swedish should rather be called "nationalstadgar"; national statues; for more swedish people to fuller understand what they are, what their function is in a nation; national jurisdiction, and how people with a broader international political experience can find the formal fondation of Sweden somewhat hazy to say the least.

The lengthier Swedish version of the article contains a short paragraph on why they might sometimes be called the constitution informally, even though they are not. Furthermore, the wiki page on the similar document that has a similar role in the governing of Germany is also called Basic Law rather than constitution. Hentheden (talk) 14:04, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
