    Notes 
    • Eric XIV of Sweden
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

      Erik XIV of Sweden (December 13, 1533 - February 26, 1577), son of Gustav I of Sweden and Catherine of Saxony-Lauenburg, was king of Sweden from 1560 until he was deposed in 1568. He was also ruler of Estonia, after it gave itself under Sweden in 1561. He died in prison, apparently of poisoning. A document signed by his brother John III of Sweden and a nobleman, Bengt Bengtsson Gylta, gave Eric's watchmen in his last prison authorization to poison him if anyone tried to release him. His body was later analyzed, and showed indications of poisoning.

      Eric had several relationships before his marriage. With Agda Persdotter he had three daughters:

      Virginia Eriksdotter (1559-1633) (living descendants)
      Constantia Eriksdotter (1560-1649) (living descendants)
      Lucretia Eriksdotter (1564-still alive 1574) died young.

      With Karin Jacobsdotter:
      An unmarried child, dead apr. 1565.

      He finally married Karin Månsdotter (1550 - 1612), on July 4, 1568, their children were:
      Sigrid (1566-1633) (born before the marriage)
      Gustaf (1568-1607) (born before the marriage)
      Henrik (1570-1574)
      Arnold (1572-1573)

      Eric married Karin Månsdotter in 1568, and during the same year, Johan and the Sture-family started a revolution. Eric was overthrown and taken prisoner. Eric died in prison on the 26th of August 1577 at Örbyhus castle. His brother Johan had given orders to poison Eric's soup.
