Following the Finnish War of 1809, Sweden lost almost entire dominion of Finland to the Russian Empire, except for the now autonomous region of Egentliga Finland (Finland Proper) in the south-west. As a result, the king Gustav IV Adolf, ruling with absolute power, was deposited. A new monarch was found in French Marshal Jean Baptiste Bernadotte, who was crowned Charles XIV John of Sweden. Combined with the crowning, a new Instrument of Government was introduced, giving the monarch less power.
