Gustav IV Adolf (1778-1837) was King of Sweden from 1792 until his abdication in 1809. He was the last Swedish ruler of Finland, and after an army revolt, was seized by officers and forced to relinquish the throne. In exile, Gustav used several titles including Count Gottorp, Duke of Holstein-Eutin, and finally settled at St. Gallen in Switzerland, under the name of Colonel Gustafsson. Friederike Dorothea Wilhelmina of Baden (1781-1826) was Queen consort of Sweden from 1797 to 1809. She married King Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden on 31 Oct. 1797 and was exiled with him to Switzerland in 1809 following his forced abdication of the throne.
