Politics and government of
Sweden

This is a list of Swedish monarchs, that is, the Kings and ruling Queens of Sweden, with regents and viceroys of the Kalmar Union up to the present time.

The earliest record of what is generally considered to be a Swedish king appears in Tacitus' work Germania, c. 100 AD (the king of the Suiones). However, due to scant and unreliable sources before the 11th century, lists of succession traditionally start in the 10th century with king Olof Skötkonung, and his father Eric the Victorious, who also were the first Swedish kings to be baptized.
