Gustavus Wasa died in 1560. His son Erik XIV has a macabre historical connection to Uppsala Castle, since it was here that he executed three members of the Sture family in 1567 in connection with a power struggle between the king and the aristocracy. But Erik and above all his brother Johan III did a great deal to beautify the castle?after all, Uppsala was the coronation site of the house of Wasa.
