    From Vanguard to Rearguard: The Swedish Court as a Motor of Change in the Seventeenth Century2016In: The Court Historian, ISSN 1462-9712, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 109-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Royal courts could profoundly influence other parts of government. While government bureaucracy has usually been seen as leading the charge towards new, more efficient and stronger centralised authority, this article demonstrates how the Swedish court acted as an engine in the transformation of the dysfunctional Swedish state of 1600 into something much more formidable. At the encouragement of monarchs, noble courtiers became more attentive in their service to the state, more educated, more diverse in their origins, and more skilled in the arts of war. But such change was not everlasting, and the article compares characteristics of the court at the beginning of the seventeenth century with those of the later decades — the Caroline period. In these years the court turned inward on itself, declining from a position of innovation and leadership to one of reaction and decay, more rearguard than vanguard.

    Kissing hands and wearing ribbons: Gender and Status Competition at the Swedish Court2015In: Gender at Status Competition in Premodern Societies, Umeå 27 November 2015, 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Competition for status was the life blood of early modern courts. Members of the elite guarded their place in the social hierarchy ferociously, and often tried to improve it at the expense of others. The court was probably rightly seen as an arbiter of status, a place where status was defined and acknowledged.

    In reality, this was an intensely competitive environment where the struggle for status meant that hierarchies could be remarkably fluid. From 1672 onwards a crude table of rank, although limited in scope, afforded some semblance of continuity, but the personal character of early modern monarchy often trumped such blunt formalities.

    The table of rank was in reality a poor guide to status, as that was made up not just of formal office and title, but also of family connections, perceived power, and royal favour. The role of women in formal rank systems was a bone of contention. Queen Christina considered having a special table of rank for women, and bitter struggles over precedence between women at court could escalate into long-running family conflicts.

    Proximity to the monarch was key in the early modern Swedish polity; a physical proximity that was inevitably gendered. It also had to be asserted openly, preferably in formalities, and ceremony could thus denote an individual’s status. This opened up for a complex play between personal standing with the royal family and existing precedent. Ceremony could also be a public way—or often in the case of everyday ceremony, a semi-public way—to enhance (or diminish) status. Where would women and men at court be placed in processions, at meals, and on various other occasions? Who had the right of entry into the royal family’s most private chambers? It was calibrated all the way down to the individual components of ceremonies, with a ritual such as kissing hands also serving to indicate status. Who was allowed to kiss the royal hand? Who was allowed to kiss the royal cheek?

    Proximity to the royal person could also be manifested in material form. Jewellery or miniature portraits, handed out as gifts, betokened royal favour and boosted status. Other objects could also signal inclusion, such as the paraphernalia of the various honours and royal orders and various forms of dress.  All this was visible to others present at court and beyond, and could increase (or decrease) the status and power of the individual.

    Opportunity or threat?: early modern political prophecies2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    To early modern politicians prophecies were a political reality. Monarchs such as Gustavus Adolphus or Charles X of Sweden employed court astrologers. When a Swedish ambassador returned home from England he brought with him a prophecy by an English astrologer, which then circulated at the parliament of 1658. The courtier Johan Ekeblad gushed in a letter "it is a wondrous thing how everything he writes has come true, God willing it may continue as he has written". Looking closer at the prophecy Ekeblad's wish for fulfillment is understandable. It is a timetable for future Swedish conquests. A miraculous victory over Denmark had just happened and added credence to the prophecy. Even more amazing feats were in store according to the English astrologer. In 1659 Poland was to be defeated and in 1660 Lithuania was to "suffer great punishment". The following year Courland would be conquered and in 1661 Swedish arms would take Moscow. Following year the Netherlands would be overrun and England an ally. In 1669 Sweden will break into Italy and take the most important cities. The Jesuit Order will "succumb to its punishment" and in 1671 King Charles X Gustav will convert Rome to Protestantism. This no holds barred prophecy was very similar to sermons held by "our vicar" according to Ekeblad. Such extatic support for Sweden could be used by the government. Positive prophecies could help boosting morale. On the other hand there were also prophecies that had no support in government circles. Such prophecies could be viewed as dangerous and incendiary. How did the government handle this latter kind of unwanted prophecies? In a number of instances we can see how the Swedish Council tried to counteract and smother these prophetic outbursts. How did the top political stratum in Sweden use or deflect prophecies?
