About Charles XIV & III John, king of Sweden and Norway

https://sok.riksarkivet.se/Sbl/Presentation.aspx?id=12359

Carl XIV & III Johan (26 January 1763 – 8 March 1844) was King of Sweden (as Carl XIV Johan) and King of Norway (as Karl III Johan) from 1818 until his death. Before he became king, he was also the Sovereign Prince of Pontecorvo, in Southern Italy, between 1806 and 1810. (Wikipedia (English))

Name

"Carl XIV Johan's only baptismal name was, as Fredrik Ulrik Wrangel found out in 1889, "Jean Bernadotte". But that was also the baptismal name of his elder brother. Thus the eldest brother was called Jean-Évangeliste, the younger Jean-Baptiste. This was apparently not uncommon in Navarre at the time. He always signed "J. Bernadotte". But as a revolutionary general he added a Roman name ("Jules"), which was again not uncommon at the time.

"In the Act of Succession of 1810 he is called "Johan Baptist Julius", which is the Swedish version of Jean Baptiste Jules. This was thus his official name during his first months as Crown Prince, and he might have reigned as Johan IV.

"However, when he was adopted by Carl XIII on 2 November 1810 (an act of goodwill which had no constitutional implications) he chose to honour his adoptive father by taking his name, and thus became Carl Johan, dropping Baptist Julius."
