History and profileEdit

The magazine was established in 1889.[1][2] Svensk Damtidning is part of Aller Media and is published by Aller Media AB on a weekly basis.[3] Its headquarters is in Helsingborg.[3]

In the initial period Svensk Damtidning targeted all women without a special reference concerning social class, but later it is called a royal lifestyle magazine.[4] The magazine began to cover celebrity news from the 1970s and focuses on the news about the European royal families.[2] Its audience is women aged between 20 and 49.[3]

Men's magazine, Café, is its one of sister magazines.[5]

Just after one year after its publication Svensk Damtidning became the second best-selling women's magazine in Sweden.[1] In 2007 the magazine sold 139,00 copies making it the eighth largest magazine in the country.[6] Both in 2011 and in 2013 the magazine was the sixth best-selling magazine in Sweden. The 2011 circulation of the magazine was 145,600 copies.[7] Its circulation was 144,600 copies in 2013.[8]
