>A book called Swedish Ways. by (last name) Linne (accent on the last 
>e) on page 125.

I found the bit quoted earlier online. The king in question was born 
in the 17th century.

>The History of Coffee.... (big book...don't have author's name)

And what was its source?

>King Charles Gustav  personal physician prescribed it as a "remedy...."

Assuming you mean Charles Gustav X, the one you referred to earlier, 
he was born in 1622, so his personal physician wasn't prescribing it 
in the 16th century.
