Magnus was born about 1240, the second son of Birger Magnusson, jarl in Sweden, regent of Sweden, and Ingeborg Eriksdotter of Sweden, herself the youngest sister of the childless Erik Eriksson 'Laspe', king in Sweden, and the youngest daughter of Erik X Knutsson, king in Sweden and Richiza of Denmark. His father designated Magnus as his successor in powers of Earl of the Realm (riksjarl), henceforward titled Duke of Sweden. His elder brother, Valdemar Birgersson had become the king in succession of their maternal uncle in 1250.

In 1275 Duke Magnus started a rebellion against his brother with Danish help, and ousted him from the throne. Magnus was elected king at the Stones of Mora. On 11 November 1276 Magnus married his second wife Hedwig von Holstein, daughter of Gerhard I, Graf von Holstein, and Elisabeth von Mecklenburg. Through her mother she was a descendant of Kristina, the daughter of Sverker II 'den yngre', king in Sweden (d.1210). A papal annulment of Magnus' first marriage and a dispensation for his second (necessary because of consanguinity) was issued ten years later, in 1286. Hedwig later acted as queen regent (probably from 1290 to 1302 and from 1320 to 1327).

He was the first Magnus to rule Sweden, and is recognised as a legitimate king and not a usurper of a pretender. Later historians ascribed his epithet 'Ladulås' to a decree of 1279 or 1280 freeing the yeomanry from the duty to provide sustenance for travelling nobles and bishops; another theory was that it was simply a corruption of Ladislaus, which could possibly have been his second name, considering his Slavic heritage.

The _Alsnö stadga_ (Ordinance of Alsnö) from 1279 or 1280 also gave anyone who undertook to provide the Crown with a mounted warrior (knight) and a warhorse, the freedom from certain taxes (such a privilege was called _frälse_ in Swedish). This is often said to be the foundation of the Swedish nobility, although the gradual development of this privileged group into a hereditary class would take centuries and not become formalised until long into the 16th century.

The deposed king Valdemar managed, with Danish help in turn, to regain provinces in Gothenland, the southern part of the kingdom, and Magnus had to recognise this in 1277. However, Magnus regained these provinces about 1278 and officially assumed the additional title _rex Gothorum,_ king of the Goths, starting the tradition of 'King of the Swedish and the Goths'.

Magnus' youngest brother Bengt (1254-1291), then an archdeacon, acted as his lord high chancellor of Sweden, and in 1284 Magnus rewarded him with the duchy of Finland.

When Magnus died on 18 December 1290 his sons were still underage. Magnus appointed his kinsman Torgils Knutsson, the lord high constable of Sweden, as the guardian of his heir, the future King Birger of Sweden, who was about ten years old at his father's death.
