Stockholm is the capital of Sweden.  Stockholm is the most populous city in Sweden, with a population of 871,952 in the municipality (2010), 1,372,565 in the urban area (2010), and 2,119,760 in the metropolitan area (2010).  As of 2010, the Stockholm metropolitan area is home to approximately 22% of Sweden's population.  Founded in 1250, possibly as early as 1187, Stockholm has long been one of Sweden's cultural, media, political, and economic centres.  Its strategic location spread across 14 islands on the coast in the south-east of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, by the Stockholm archipelago, has been historically important.  Stockholm is the site of the national Swedish government, the Parliament of Sweden (Riksdagen), the Supreme Court of Sweden (Högsta domstolen), and the official residence of the Swedish monarch as well as the prime minister.  Since 1980, the monarch has resided at Drottningholm Palace in Ekerö Municipality outside of Stockholm and uses the Stockholm Palace as his workplace and official residence.  The government has its seat in Rosenbad and the parliament in the Parliament House.  Stockholm's core is the Old Town (Gamla Stan) which was built on a central island next to Helgeandsholmen starting in the mid-13th century.
