Gustav’s greatest achievement was the creation of a strong monarchy. He based his power on a massive agglomeration of crown and family lands, acquired for the most part by confiscation from the church, which put him beyond the rivalry of any other noble house. The supervision and exploitation of these lands was his personal concern, and with it went an infinite solicitude for the least detail of fiscal policy. In the 1540s, owing to a lack of trained Swedes, he imported German administrators. This was a brief episode, but their work had a lasting effect in Sweden. It enabled Gustav to maintain his personal supervision and to combine it with high efficiency.
