February 10 in Swedish History

The possibly only person in history to die from eating too many of the popular semla dies on this date.


February 10 in Swedish History
1771: Swedish King Adolf Fredrik dies of acute food poisoning at Stockholm Palace after having eaten too much, most famously of the beloved Swedish dessert “semla”. Adolf Fredrik, who was born in 1710, is succeeded by his son Gustav, who becomes King Gustav III. Gustav, who at the time is in Paris, receives the message of his father’s passing during an opera visit a month later and travels to Sweden immediately.
