i strongly belive that lovisa does carl xv a favor as she was of full of royal blood unlike her husband who has his maternal grandmother as a royalty and all the other nobles.I heard that many royal houses turn down bernadotte down for the hands of their princess or princes marriage since many of them refuse to recognize them as equal and the bernadotte has to face the humiliation of marrying themselves into unimportant princesses now i understand why the swedish royal family refuse to allow their members marrying outside the european royal family since they already have the stigma of being commoner-royal they want to have full royal in their family

Yes, the Bernadottes were considered as "upstarts" for a while. But for the last 130 years, they've been considered equals to every other royal house in Europe. And it's a good thing, that royals may marry commoners these days.

Mauree,
That sounds similar to the rumors of my family. Supposedly my great-great-grandmother, Anna Charlotte Wilemsdotter (some places written Anna Charlotta, born May 1835), is the illegitimate daughter of Oscar I and Lisa Maya Sten. I dont know what happened to Lisa, but Anna married Lars Holmquist and moved from to Minnesota, USA around 1885 and died as Anna Holmquist in 1918. I have seen references to Västmanland, Sweden and Nora, Sweden, but don't know much more.

I'd be curious to know if anyone has research ideas?

My Great Grandmother, Schanna Bernadette Carlson, was rumored to be the illegitimate daughter of Karl XV. She was born in 1869.

King Karl XV is rumoured to have fathered several children with different women. Especially around the summer residence Bäckaskog castle the story tells the houses on the estate was full of dark haired children he sired with local girls.
These stories should be taken with a pinch of salt though. He did have some illegitimate children but if he did father all the children he's said to have done I'm surprised he had time doing anything else.

In Emperors, Kings & Queens, Sonya Newland wrote:

Charles XV believed that the three Scandanavian kingdoms should be united if not politically, at least in the face they presented to the rest of the world.
