Swedish King, the first in the Bernadotte dynasty, he ascended to the throne on August 21, 1810 at 5:45 PM in Stockholm according to astrologer Monica Werenman in the ISAR electronic newsletter of March 19, 2005, vol. 328. Monica did not include the source for this time.
Bernadotte was a brilliant general under Napolean Bonaparte. He endeared himself to the Swedish people and became prince when the childless Charles XIII (or Carl/Karl) adopted him in 1813. He convinced the Swedes to turn against the Napoleonic campaigns and successfully wrested Norway from under Denmark.
On August 17, 1798, he married
Eugenie Bernardine Désirée; they had one child Oscar, who acceded to the throne upon Carl's death on March 8, 1844.
