The 4th Army Division (Swedish language: 4. Arméfördelningen ), also known as the Eastern Army Division, was a division of the Swedish Army that existed between 1889 and 2000. In a brief period between 1927 and 1937, the division was reduced to a brigade known as the Eastern Brigade. The division headquarters was located in Stockholm, later in Enköping, Uppland and finally in Strängnäs, Södermanland. The unit was disbanded as a result of the disarmament policies set forward in the Defence Act of 2000.
