Abstract: We detail the results of simulations of magnetic relaxation, as this is assumed to happen in stellar radiation zones. While previous studies focused on the description of static equilibria, we include here the rotation in the numerical setup which substantially modifies the outcome of the simulations. In particular, magnetic equilibria are found whose privileged axis are inclined with respect to the rotation axis, as observed in early-type, magnetic main sequence stars. The dependence of the final equilibrium state on the rotation rate is discussed.
