Abstract (Swedish)
Since 1772, members of the Royal Swedish family have been granted titular duchies among the historical provinces of Sweden.

Central and important provinces with majestic heraldic symbols have been chosen to a greater extent than smaller and more peripheral provinces with less majestic symbols.

The coat-of-arms of the duchy is represented in the personal arms of the duke or duchess. During the centuries, different methods have been used to insert the arms of the duchy in the arms of the realm and the royal house to create a personal coat-of-arms for every prince and princess.

Since 1772, members of the Royal Swedish family have been granted titular duchies among the historical provinces of Sweden. The right to choose a duchy for a prince, and since 1980, for a princess that is heir to the throne, lies with the King. Central and important provinces with majestic heraldic symbols have been chosen to a greater extent than smaller and more peripheral provinces with less majestic symbols.

The coat-of-arms of the duchy is represented in the personal arms of the duke or duchess. During the centuries, different methods have been used to insert the arms of the duchy in the arms of the realm and the royal house to create a personal coat-of-arms for every prince and princess. Quartering has been applied since 1910, which continues a tradition from the Vasa dynasty in the 16th and 17th centuries. During the period 1772-1910, the shields were typically tierced in pairle reversed, with some individual variations.
