Riddarholmskyrkan or Riddarholm Church is the pantheon of Sweden (used as such 1290-1950), located on Riddarholmen (Knight's Island) in the old town of Stockholm. Only exceptionally have a few kings and other royals of Sweden been buried elsewhere, the main exceptions being Upsala Cathedral, Vreta Cloister, Alvastra Abbey (ruins), and Varnhem Church. A few foreign monarchs who also ruled Sweden were buried in Denmark, Norway, Poland and Germany. In the 20th century, the Royal Cemetery at Karlsborg or Kungliga begravningsplatsen in the capital's northern suburb of Solna began to be used, as this funerary building was considered full. It is no longer classified as a working church.
