Swedish term or phrase: slaganfall
Hello

I know that this king was killed on the battlefield thanks to Wiki

But my text says:

Gustav II Adolf, född år 1594, hade efterträtt sin far redan vid 16 års älder när denne flått slaganfall

I want to check if this is good Swedish as I thought at first that he had had a stroke.

Thanks
