  House of Vasa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The House of Vasa was the Royal House of Sweden (1523-1654) and of Poland (1587-1668).
The throne passed to her cousin Charles X of the House of Palatinate (Pfalz-Zweibrücken), a cadet branch of the Wittelsbachs.
We thus have two Houses of Vasa from this point onwards: the senior, Catholic branch ruling in Poland, and the cadet, Protestant branch ruling in Sweden.

King Sigismund III of Poland, Sigismund of Sweden (June 20, 1566 O.S. – April 19, 1632), was the son of King John III of Sweden (1537 – 1592), of the House of Vasa, and his first wife Catherine Jagellonica of Poland (1526 – 1583).
He ruled in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, where he was known as Zygmunt III Waza, from 1587 to 1632 and in Sweden, where he was known as Sigismund Vasa, from 1592 until he was deposed in 1599.
While the Commonwealth Sejm managed to thwart many ambitious (and dangerous) offensive plans of Sigismund (and later of his son, Wladislaw), the Vasa dynasty nonetheless succeeded in partially drawing the Commonwealth into the Thirty Years War.
