Kuninkaan matkassa

A part of the Teitten Tarinat –series. It was the year 1775. King Gustav III of Sweden had come into power two years earlier and he wished to become acquainted with the eastern parts of his kingdom; its administration, defence and roads. The retinue of the king was large and the schedule strict. Nearly 300 horses were needed along the way, and added to that a lot of peasants and other folk.
The second part of the series travels with Gustav III of Sweden through the then Finland. How was the eastern part of the kingdom seen through the king’s eyes? Who used the roads at the time, and how did one travel on them?
