 List of Swedish monarchs - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: )
These records contain the early kings, of the House of Yngling, and give an explanation to the numbering of the monarchs, particularly the names Erik and Karl (Eric and Charles).
Based on the Danish chronicler Saxo Grammaticus, these have often been classified as belonging to the Swedish house of Ynglings.
However, the sagas tell that this line of kings was broken (see Ingjald and Ivar Vidfamne), and trace them back to Sigurd Ring and Ragnar Lodbrok (whom Saxo, on the other hand, considered to belong to the House of Yngling).

 HEAD OF STATE : Encyclopedia Entry
The position of a monarch is usually hereditary, but often with constitutional restrictions, or even considerable liberty for the incumbent or some body convening after his demise to chose from eligible members of the ruling house, often limited to legal descendants of the state religion or even parliamentary permission.
A monarch may retain his style and certain prerogatives after abdication, as King Leopold III of Belgium who left the throne to his son after winning (but not in both linguistic communities of the country) a referendum; he retained a full royal household but no constitutional or representative role at all.
By tradition a deposed monarch who has not freely abdicated, though no longer head of state, is allowed to use their monarchical title as a courtesy title for their lifetime.

 Talk:List of Swedish monarchs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1907 an official spelling reform was made in Swedish schools, replacing "hv", "fv" and some occurrences of "-f" with "v" and "dt" with "tt".
Some Swedish historians have used the convention of spelling kings' names with f and c during their lifetime (Gustaf, Carl, Oscar) and with v and k after their lifetime (Gustav, Karl, Oskar), which is certainly confusing and not in line with any English customs.
Add to this confusion that Karl XII is known throughout Europe as Carolus (the Latin form of his name), that John is the English form and Johann is the German form of Johan, and that king Sigismund was also the king of Poland.
