Line of succession to the Swedish throne

From Academic Kids

In 1980 Sweden adopted equal primogeniture, meaning that the eldest descendants of the monarch, regardless of gender, takes precedence, with children taking precedence over grandchildren. Before that Sweden had used the system of Salic law, meaning that females had no automatic right to succession. However, when there was an extinction of male heirs, the monarch was selected through election, which could allow females to rule (such as Queen Ulrika Eleonora). See also: Order of succession
