Admiral karl Karlsson . Gyllenhielm started to build Karlbergs Slott in the 1630s, during the Thirty Years War. From 1670 the palace was extended and rebuilt by Magnus Gabriel de la Gardie, with Jean de la Vallee as his architect. When Karlberg became royal property in 1688, it was one of Sweden’s most majestic palaces.

It was where the hero King Karl XII (1682-1718) grew up, and it was here that he lay in state after his death at the Battle of Fredrikshald (35). In 1792 the architect C C Gjorwell converted the property into the Royal War Academy, which later became the Karlberg Military School, and since 1999 it has been the site for One of the country’s military academies.

The interior decorations include Carl Carove’s magnificent stucco-work which can be seen in the grand hall. The palace church has been renovated several times,

but the 17th-century lanterns are original. De la Gardie’s wood-panelled rarities room’ is now the sacristy, but once it housed his collection of valuables.
