That was indeeed an interesting article about Prince Eugen. But now I am also intrigued by August and Therese, who nobody seems to talk about at all. It sounds like the rest of the royal family wanted to treat them as if they were insignificant.

I don't think the royal family saw them as insignificant, but that they "disappeared" among siblings that were more talented (Gustaf being a composer, Eugenie painted and made sculptures), and two brothers who became kings, it was difficult for August and Teresia to be seen and shine. Add to that the fact that both of them were more or less what can be described as "originals", Teresia more than August. When Teresia became a widow in 1873 she received a guardian, even if according to the law in Sweden at the time a widow (and a unmarried woman since 1863) was considered as being a major.

If you can read the article, that Meraude linked to a few days ago, you will see that there have been different theories about why Prince Eugen never got married. Maybe he was "married" to his art. Maybe he just never found a princess, whom he could fall in love with (and after his brother Oscar had married a non-royal woman, Eugen and his brother Carl had to promise their father to not repeat that faux pas). Maybe he was homosexual? But it doesn't seem like there is a good answer to that question.

In the article in Expressen it's mentioned that prince Eugen became friends with countess Ebba (Wallenberg) Bonde when he was in his 60ies and she was 30 years younger than him. Ebba was born Wallenberg, a prominent Swedish family and financial dynasty, and married into the noble Bonde family. They travelled together, played golf and tennis, went out dancing and so on. She was one of Sweden's first celebrities, unconventional and a bit wild. If they were just friends or had a relationship is not known.

The Russian chandelier in the salon at Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde in Stockholm was bought by Prince Carl (later Carl XIII of Sweden) in Prag 1798. It was inherited by Eugen, together with many other things, from Rosersberg Palace after his father Oscar II's death in 1907.

The painting by Ernst Josephson (1851-1906) called 'Strömkarlen' (The Nix or the Water Spirit) from 1884 was bought by Prince Eugen who offered it in 1893 to the National Museum in Stockholm. They refused it which angered the prince and he had it mounted into the panelling in the salon and stipulated that it must never leave the house!

Waldemarsudde in Stockholm, now a museum, was built in 1903-1905 by the great architect Ferdinand Boberg (1860-1946) for Prince Eugen. The prince, who was a painter and great patron of the arts, was involved in the creation of the house and it's interiors. His studio was behind the large window at the top.

Waldemarsudde in Stockholm was built in 1903-1905 as a home for the unmarried artist Prince Eugen of Sweden (1865-1947). He also added a gallery for his collection of contemporary art. He left the house and the collections to the State and it is open as a museum.

Waldemarsudde, built by Ferdinand Boberg 1903-1905 for Prince Eugen, has the most beautiful location with terraces leading down to the water in Stockholm. The bronze sculpture is a copy of the winged Nike of Samothrace in the Louvre.

Article of Prince Eugen at this week's Svensk Damtidning.
Today, 70 years after his death, Prince Eugen is seen as one of the great artists at his time. What a relief he had had if he had known that? Eugen struggled to be taken seriously despite his wealth and ancestry. That is why he sometimes called himself Monsieur Oscarsson and when he in 1889 took part at Paris World Fair, he signed his paintings "Eugéne".
The article tells that prince Eugen had promised to his father that he would not marry a non royal. It is told that prince Eugen became a new man when he at his sixties met countess Ebba Bonde, who was half of his age. The gossip pages told about their socializing, but she was married and Eugen got never married. If he ever had a romance, we will never know that. The prince kept his private life discreet which of course didn't prevent the various speculations.
At Waldemarsudde he took good care of his staff, but they had to call him Your Highness. The closest friends called him Prinsen (The Prince) and his first name was used only by his family members.

I guess that he used pseudonyms on his paintings sometimes, so that people wouldn't suck up to him because he was a prince. He wanted his work to be judged by it own merit.
