Wikipedia article

'Bevare Gud vr Kung' (Swedish for "God Save Our King") was the first royal anthem of Sweden. Written in 1805 by Abraham Niclas Edelcrantz (17541821) to honor King Gustaf IV Adolf, it was set to the melody of the British anthem "'God Save the King'". The song would serve as the 'de facto' royal anthem from 1805 to 1893, when 'Kungssngen' was adopted as the official royal anthem.
