• The Swedish National Archives is one of the country’s oldest public authorities. With roots in the Middle Ages, the first archive was established in 1618 to hold government and court records, and was placed under the control of the Royal Chancery.
  • The Military Archives, which hold military records from the sixteenth century to the present, was established in 1805.
  • In 1878 the National Archives were removed from the Royal Chancery to become an independent public authority.
  • Between 1899 and 1935, seven Regional State Archives were established to collect and preserve the records of regional and local authorities.
  • The Military Archives and Regional State Archives all began life as independent institutions, but were subsequently merged with the National Archives in 1995 and 2010 respectively.
