 The Swedish invasion army negotiated a settlement in Norway and then marched on Stockholm, toppling mad King Gustav IV. Offered the throne, Frederick VI. rejected it on the grounds of the Swedish coupmakers being insurgents. Gustav’s uncle Karl XIII. was elected King but being without offspring a heir was needed and Duke Christian August was then approached and at the peace negotiations in Jönköping on December 10., 1809, Frederick VI. allowed Christian August to accept the offer.
