Sammanfattning: The aim of this composition is using the theories of communicative action and political legitimacy to understand and analyze which role politics and the political incitement had for Gustaf III in his actions and decision to legitimize the adoption of increased rights for Jews in the late 18th century. The results showed that Gustaf III of Sweden used the adoption of increased rights to the Jews to legitimize his power and win recognition as a King. It was important for the King to gain reputation and honor. Together with the acts of the communicative in order to achieve a consensus with other peoples, the political incitement was the main reason why Gustaf III of Sweden adopted increased rights to the Jews during the 18th century. Jewish settlement in Sweden was not just about a question of tolerance and freedom of religion. If we visible the power configuration it becoming more of a question about political incitement. The King and his followers used the Jewish settlement to raise capital from the Jews which involved the circulation of money in Sweden. By the adoption of increased rights for the Jews Gustaf III also won an recognition as King of certain individuals groups. Especiallyof royals in Europe but also in the bureaucracy in Sweden. For example the National Board of Trade supported the king och helped him to a adopt various rights to the Jews. We could not explain all the actions and decisions of the Gustaf III with the the political incitement , but for me the political ingression helped to understanding the action of the King in matters of giving a limited religious freedom to the Jews.
