Linköping’s History

Originally a medieval city, Linköping has always been an administrative center for the region. Parts of the medieval street network have been preserved around the central square, or Stora Torget: Tanneforsgatan, S:t Korsgatan and Ågatan Streets. The city evolved as the bishop’s seat, growing outward from the cathedral down towards St. Lars Church. Both churches were built in the early 12th century, but were later replaced with larger buildings. The Franciscan monastery was founded in 1287, and Linköping probably received its city charter at about the same time. King Magnus III and Bishop Bengt Birgersson, two sons of famed statesman Birger Jarl, who helped to unify Sweden, are said to have founded the city. Since the Middle Ages, Linköping has had a cathedral school next to the cathedral, and the city got its first upper-secondary school way back in 1627.

Linköping’s bloodbath

In 1598, King Sigismund was defeated by Duke Karl at the Battle of Stångebro. Several of the defeated king’s counselors were imprisoned at Linköping Castle for treason, and were beheaded on the central square in 1600, an act that came to be called the Linköping bloodbath.
