King Gustav Vasa and the Legitimization of a New Royal Dynasty in Sweden
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of History.
2003 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In this paper I shall address king Gustav’s propaganda directed to the peasant communities. To hold on to his throne the king needed their support, in economic as well as political matters. To achieve that he had to convince the peasants that the new regime was good for them and that support for Gustav was only in their own interest. I will show how Gustav made use of traditional values of how a good relationship between a king and his subjects ought to be established. But I will also argue that the king’s message changed during the latter part of the reign, when he began to announce his vision of a stronger kingship, indeed, of a better organized state.
