many thanks to brian middleton for this post, which he titled, "Matt Lowe?"

Excerpt:
"Adolf Frederick (Swedish: Adolf Fredrik) (14 May 1710 – 12 February 1771) was King of Sweden from 1751 until his death."

'The king died of digestion problems on February 12, 1771 after having consumed a meal consisting of lobster, caviar, sauerkraut, kippers and champagne, which was topped off with 14 servings of his favourite dessert: semla served in a bowl of hot milk. He is thus remembered by Swedish school children as "the king who ate himself to death." '
