Royal Notes in the Margin : On Erik XIV of Sweden and the Historia de omnibus Gothorum Sueonumque regibus

Nilsson, Astrid LU (2013) Colloquium Balticum XII Marburgense, 2013
Abstract
In Uppsala University Library a copy of Johannes Magnus' Historia de omnibus Gothorum Sueonumque regibus is kept which once belonged to King Eric XIV of Sweden (1533-1577). He has written notes in the margin but first and foremost made little drawings, many of them recurring, that correspond to underlined passages in the main text. This paper explains the meaning of some of the drawings by investigating the passages next to them.
