Countess Estelle Bernadotte (1904-1984)

I don't know if the newest little princess of Sweden have got her name from the countess Estelle or not, but here are some info and links about her.

Estelle Romaine Manville, born in Pleasantville, New York in 1904 married count Folke Bernadotte in 1928. They had four sons, two of them died young. Folke Bernadotte was killed in 1948.

Thanks for the information! Many years ago in an undergraduate international law class, we briefly covered a court case resulting from the death of a Count Bernadotte while he was engaged in UN business.

That's the first time I've seen a picture of her. I wonder what happened to the coronet she wore at her wedding. Perhaps this is the wrong place to ask.

Estelle Bernadotte was the leader/chair for the Swedish Girl Scout organization from 1949 to 1957.

I am glad to get these pictures. I have wondered about Estelle Bernadotte, as she is sometimes referred to as obscure or unimportant when discussing the new Princess Estelle's name. I have thought that Crown Princess Victoria must have thought she was NOT unimportant, in order to give the baby Estelle's name. But her father's firm made asbestos roofing... that is not so good. Asbestos has been a big problem for many of us, as when it burned in a fire I was in in 2000. I expect asbestos is not made any more, but I am not sure.

Just curious, but what has her fathers business got to do with either the Countess or the fact that Victoria named ger daughter Estelle?

Doesn't have a lot to do with it, NGalitzine, except it shows from whence she came, the type of rich people in America who contributed partners to European nobles at that time. Perhaps similar to situation portrayed in Downton Abbey, the rich Americans who married European nobility. Shows her background, and why she and Count Folke were welcome at the White House soon after her wedding. Doesn't have anything to do with the apparent good works she did in Sweden after her marriage, or her apparent happy marriage to Count Folke (look at their reunion on Rhodes, very happy to see one another, tragic that he was only months away from assasination.) We always discuss background, I think, that's what makes people interesting instead of just place-holders. Sticking to the narrow subject makes her one-dimensional. She apparently was very three-dimensional, not just an obscure person as some have said on TRF. Who cares about mere "lists" of he-married-her, she-married-him, etc.? We like to know more, that's why we love Downton Abbey.
