AL90 03 T.S. King Carl XII 1697 to 1718
King 1697 - 1718
Born 17 juni 1682, King 1697-1718, Date of Death 30 November 1718
When Karl's father, Karl XI, died in 1697, young Karl was only 14 years old. Because of his young age Karl was not pronounced King at that time, and a temporary government was formed to control Sweden. A year later when Karl XII was just 15 years old he had proven the people wrong, and he was pronounced King of Sweden. At this time Sweden was the most powerful kingdom in Europé. This included what we today know as Sweden, Finland, The Baltic states, a part of Russia called Karelia, part of Norway, and Courland which is located in northern Germany.
