Kongl. Maj:ts nådiga kungörelse at judar icke hädanefter få, utan särskildt nådigt tilstånd, til riket inflytta och sig her bosätta; Gifwen Haga slott den - "Royal announcement that henceforth Jews shall not be permitted, without special merciful permission, to immigrate to the realm and settle here". Stockholm, decree from August 31, 1815. Swedish.
Antisemitic royal decree prohibiting Jews from passing through or settling in the kingdom, Determines that henceforth Jews may settle in the kingdom only with special permission from the monarchy.
Jews began settling in the Swedish kingdom in 1680 when Charles XI first permitted Jews to settle there. But only five years later, Jews were required to leave the country due to opposition from local residents. The official Jewish presence in Sweden began in 1772, with evidence of a small Jewish community already existing in Stockholm. Over the years Swedish Jews faced various restrictions and were even forced to convert as a condition of settlement. In the late 18th century, regulations were published limiting Jews to specific occupations. The decree before us, which outright prohibited Jewish settlement without special permission, marked the apex of the monarchy's attitude toward Jews, leaving just a few hundred Jews residing in the Swedish kingdom - a situation that only improved in 1838 when Charles XIV granted Jews equal rights and status as "Swedes of the faith of Moses". Full equal rights were not attained until 1870, similar to other European Jews.
