The article discusses the reception of the canonical doctrine of legitimization by subsequent marriage in medieval Sweden. It analyzes what legal institutions were available in Sweden for pursuing individual property strategies. The article discusses especially how the doctrine was used in practice in the fifteenth-century case involving the marriage and inheritance of King Karl Knutsson Bonde. This case study demonstrates the conflict of interest between the presumptive heirs and the person using marriage as an instrument for changing the pool of presumptive heirs and effectively reducing the inheritance lots of the then heirs or disinheriting them altogether.
