Plot

The series take place at the royal Swedish court in the 1770s on the Royal Palace, Stockholm, and Ekolsund Castle. The plot portrays the famous event in 1775 when the King, after nine years of marriage, decides to consummate his marriage with the Queen in order to provide an heir to the throne. The reconciliation between the royal couple is managed by Stable master Adolf Fredrik Munck af Fulkila and, though the event is followed by success in 1778, it resulted in a scandal where the legitimacy of the Crown Prince is questioned by the mother of the King.
