Sigismund Augustus III Jagiello was elected king of Poland in 1587 and the death of his father occurred in 1592, he became king of Sweden. Catholic, he lost his title of King of Sweden in 1599, and replaced his uncle on the throne of Sweden in 1604 under the name of Charles IX. He also fought against the Reformation in Poland. In 1610, he occupied Moscow and was elected tsar's son Ladislas, his reign was brief, as the city was retaken in 1612 by Pozharsky. He declared war on his nephew, King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, but he lost his entire fleet and the greatest part of Livonia. Given these defeats, he was forced to sign in 1629 the Altmark truce which marked the end of the war with Sweden.
