Seated in the first row the third lady is huis sister-in-law Grand Duchess Hilda of Baden,
in the second row: fifth from left: Princess Thyra of Denmark (has to be here as she earlier owned the tiara which is now in Norway), Margracine Theodora of baden, Princess Ingeborg
I like how sometimes in these group photos, if you can't identify people from their faces, you can at least identify the ladies from their jewelry, especially the tiaras!

Only if you know all the tiaras...
Btw, 2nd row, first from left is Prince Vilhelm of Sweden. And isn't Prince Bertil the one standing between Prince Vilhelm and Prince Carl?

their marriage was a political one his father oscar admired the germans and and he want the other fellow to seen as equal since some refuse to recognize the bernadotte as a equals and whith a marriage to a granddaughter of the german kaiser and of princess sophie of sweden daughter of king gustav iv adolf it was a way to bring the lines of the legitimate house of holstein-gottorp into the bernadotte who was adopted also victoria father was seen by some who refuse to recognize the bernadotte reings as the claimant and her offspring will without a doubt claim the holsten gottorp title of pretense and become king .also he will be the first king to be born into a somewhat full royal parent and i read thats why he was so upset when his sons went on to marry commoners or nobles

Such a long lived King,I read that he holds the record of being the oldest Swedish monarch and the second-longest reigning after Magnus IV.

Oscar III?

King Gustaf V's full name was Oscar Gustaf Adolf. Are there any early records where he was listed as Prince Oscar of Sweden?

On Grand Ladies website, SUBALBUM on Victoria of Baden mentioned:

Victoria of Baden made immense contributions to making Sweden a constitutional monarchy by her opposition to progressive forces in Sweden and her pro-German policies during World War I and, probably, with her Prussian demeanor.
