Life and politics

In 1772 he cooperated in the revolutionary plans of his elder brother, King Gustav III of Sweden. On the outbreak of the Russo-Swedish War of 1788 he served with distinction as admiral of the fleet, especially at the battles of Hogland (June 7, 1788) and Öland (July 26, 1789). On the latter occasion he would have won a signal victory but for the unaccountable remissness of his second-in-command, Admiral Liljehorn.

He was interested in politics, or rather, he was interested in power, and was suspected of a lot of intrigues against his brother, but never accused of anything. He was also very interested in supernatural things and mysticism. It is said that he was one of the best clients of the celebrated occultist Ulrica Arfvidsson and even asked her for political advice during the 1780s; he was also interested in the activities of the male medium Henrik Gustaf Ulfvenklou, who made a great success as a medium in the citys aristocracy during the season 1783-1784 and had great influence over the duke. Ulrica Arfvidsson (1734-1801), was a Swedish fortune-teller during the days of Gustav III of Sweden, commonly known as Mamsell Arfvidsson (Mademoiselle Arfvidsson). ...


On the death of Gustav III, Charles, now duke of Södermanland, acted as regent of Sweden till 1796; but the real ruler of the country was the narrow-minded and vindictive Gustaf Adolf Reuterholm, whose mischievous influence over him was supreme. These four years were perhaps the most miserable and degrading in Swedish history (an age of lead succeeding an age of gold, as it has well been called) and may be briefly described as alternations of fantastic jacobinism and ruthless despotism.

On the coming of age of Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden (November 1796), the duke became a mere cipher in politics until March 13, 1809, when those who had dethroned Gustav IV Adolf appointed him regent, and he was finally elected king by the Riksdag of the Estates. But by this time he was prematurely decrepit, and Crown Prince Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte took over the government as soon as he landed in Sweden in 1810. By the Union of Sweden and Norway in 1814 Charles became king of Norway under the name Carl II of Norway. After eight years as king only by title, Charles died without a natural heir on February 5, 1818, and Bernadotte succeeded him as King Charles XIV John.

His marital relationship was very distant; although initially fond of his beautiful and lively bride, they lived most of their lives separated and both had extramarital affairs. During his old age, when he became king, he began to follow her around, irritating her by asking the same questions repeatedly. Charles was talked about as having a whole harem of mistresses, including noblewoman such as Augusta von Fersen and singers and actors such as Charlotte Eckerman. One of his best known mistresses was Charlotte Slottsberg, who also had influence over him. As a king, his mistress was the noblewoman Mariana Koskull, though in reality, she is not thought to have functioned as such due to his age and condition. Charlotte (Charlotta) Beata Eckerman, 1759-1790, was a Swedish opera singer and actor. ... Gustava Charlotte (Charlotta) Slottsberg (29 May in Stockholm 1760 – 29 May in Stockholm 1800), was a Swedish ballerina-dancer, one of the first native dancers in the Royal Swedish Ballet on the Royal Swedish Opera and one of the most successful ones. ...
