King of Sweden between 1682 and 1718. Karl XII is known for being a warrior king, who turned Sweden into a northern European super power. He was killed under mysterious circumstances in a battle in Norway in 1718. Some say he was killed by his own men, who were fed up with the wars.

Today, some Swedish neo-nazi groups tend to hold a certain affection to this king.
