Charles XIV John (1763-1844), king of Sweden and Norway. Born Jean Bernadotte in France, he served as a general in Napoleon's army before being stripped of his command for acting contrary to Napoleon's commands. He was then unexpectedly elected the heir-presumptive to the elderly swedish king Charles XIII, assuming the throne in 1818 and ruling until his death. From a series of portraits of European monarchs by lithographer Antoine Maurin dit l'aîné (1793 - 1860).
