Means and Ends of Swedish Security Policy 1814–85

Part of the Library of Public Policy and Public Administration book series (LPPP, volume 3)


Swedish foreign policy during the first half of the 19th century must be seen in the light of the dramatic events which took place between 1809 and 1814. In 1809, Sweden suffered the traumatic loss of Finland to Russia. This political disaster led in 1810 to the selection of Jean Baptiste Bernadotte, one of Napoleon’s marshals, as heir to the Swedish throne.
