Eric of Pomerania was King Eric III of Norway (13891442) Norwegian Eirik, King Eric VII of Denmark (13961439), and King of Sweden (13961439) known there mainly as Erik av Pommern. He was the first King of the Nordic Kalmar Union, succeeding his adoptive mother Margaret I of Denmark. Referring to Eric of Pomerania as King Eric XIII of Sweden is a later invention, counting backwards from Eric XIV (156068). He and his brother Charles IX (16041611) adopted numerals according to a fictitious history of Sweden. The number of Swedish monarchs named Eric before Eric XIV (at least seven) is unknown, going back into prehistory, and none of them used numerals. It would be speculative to try to affix a mathematically accurate one to this king.
