Portrait of Prince Carl of Sweden and Norway, Duke of Västergötland.
Stockholm, Axel Eliassons Konstförlag, 1906. Original photograph, silver print, postcard, 13,6 x 8,6 cm. - Photograph no 767. Prince Carl of Sweden and Norway, Duke of Västergötland (27 February 1861 - 24 October 1951) was a Swedish prince. Through his daughters, for whom he arranged excellent dynastic marriages, he is an ancestor of several members of European royal houses today, including the monarchs of Norway, Belgium, and Luxembourg. Carl was the third son of King Oscar II of Sweden-Norway by his wife, Sophia of Nassau. He was known as "the Blue Prince" (Blå Prinsen) because he often wore the blue-coloured uniform of the Life Regiment, to which he belonged in a ceremonial manner. In May 1897, Prince Carl was engaged to Princess Ingeborg of Denmark, the second daughter of King Frederick VIII of Denmark. Ingeborg's mother, Louise of Sweden, was a first cousin of Prince Carl. Nevertheless, in 1947, on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary, Carl admitted that their marriage had been completely arranged by their respective fathers, and Ingeborg herself added : "I married a complete stranger!". The couple were married on 27 August 1897 at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen and spent their wedding trip (honeymoon) in Germany. The marriage, arranged by their fathers and completely conventional in every way, was entirely harmonious. (Wikipedia). KEYWORDS:photo/sweden.
