The Hovrätt was the highest judicial body in Swedenmarker until Gustav III of Sweden founded the Supreme Court of Sweden in 1789. The first hovrätt, Svea hovrätt, was founded in 1614. In Finlandmarker, then a part of Sweden, the Åbomarker hovrätt (Finnish Turun hovioikeus) was founded in 1623 by Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden due to the distance to Svea hovrätt in Stockholmmarker.

The hovrätter nowadays function as courts of appeal, the second highest judicial body in Sweden and Finland.

During the imperial era, Courts of Appeal (hovrätter in Swedish) were introduced in the kingdom in order to relieve the original Svea Court of Appeal (Svea Hovrätt) in Stockholm, established in 1614. Göta Court of Appeal was the second such court in Sweden proper, established in Jönköping in 1634. It was proceeded by Åbomarker Court of Appeal (1623) in Finlandmarker and Dorpatmarker Court of Appeal (1630) in Livonia (in present day Estonia), during this era part of the dominions of Sweden. Today, there are six court regions in Sweden: the Scania and Blekinge Court of Appeal, Malmömarker, the Court of Appeal for Western Sweden in Gothenburgmarker, the Göta Court of Appeal in Jönköpingmarker, The Svea Court of Appeal in Stockholmmarker, the Court of Appeal for Southern Norrland in Sundsvallmarker, and the Court of Appeal for Northern Norrland in Umeåmarker.
