Well, Denny, the pics of young Louise are from "Advice to my Granddaughter." Older Louise are CDV's I found at ebay (of course, didn't win any:().

Young Sofia and Gustav are from Corbis and lots of "googling."

Sophia and Oscar are from the Royalty Digest.

Excellent photo-hunting there. Too bad you didn´t win on eBay. Better luck next time. :)

I absolutely love this thread about queens from the past.

The pictures of Desideria and Josefina are truly epic. From a different time and place.

I just wanna share a few aha's that I've had while I read about these queens:

The recent queen Louise (who died 1965) and queen Lovisa (the princess from the Netherlands in the late 19th century), neither of these two brought any blood into the Swedish royal veins.

Lovisa did have a daughter, but she married the Danish crown prince and thereby she ensured Dutch blood into the Danish royal veins.

I think I can see the Lovisa look in some of the Danish princes / princesses.
(prince Ingolf and princess Elisabeth).

Queen Victoria, she must have had a hard marriage. According to Josefine's text she didn't spend a lot of time in Stockholm with the King. I can see the explanation being that, as it's often said, King Gustav 5 Adolf was a homosexual. The court was even extorted for money by the King's lover. http://historiska-personer.nu/min-s/p5f3d83e0.html

I hope they will give us a rerun of the TV-series that was made some years ago about all these queens.

Let me just say then, that Victoria is said to have been unfaithful too. It was a weird marriage. It was happy in the beginning, it seems, but it just got worse and worse. Victoria spending a lot of time abroad didn't help either. Gustav V's "lover" was also a compulsive liar. We simply don't know what went on a century ago.

Josefina became a widow in 1859 and she died in 1876, 7:th of Jun.

She founded Josefina hemmet (for nursing of poor and handicapped in the catholic church), the institution for nursing of the 'defenseless and fallen', the institution for education of women and the society for 'tender and moral maternity wellfare'. She got five children, Carl, Gustaf, Oscar, Eugénie and August. The marriage between Josefina and Oscar seems to have beeen a bit stormy now and then as Oscar had his mistress Emilie Hägqvist.
On March 14, 2007, it is 200 years since her birth.

I have a biography of Queen Louise and in it I found some interesting (and funny!) pictures I hadn't seen before. This one in particular made me smile. :)

It seems as if she's wearing the Russian kokoshnik, Kokoshnik - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , which is the original idea of the fringe tiara.

The Court has declared 2015 as "The Royal Ladies Year" and it will be highlighted in a few different ways at the programme at the Royal Palaces during the year. Every year the Royal Palaces offer several exhibitions and special events to celebrate different things, this year it is Queen Hedvig Eleonora, 300 years since she died. The Palaces also offer several lectures about the Monarchy, the Royal Household and Palaces, almost once a week. All this is called Slotten som historisk scen (The historical setting of the Royal Palaces). Link to the catalogue, which unfortunately only is in Swedish.

Slotten som historisk scen

Some of highlights this year:
- A exhibition with Princess Lilian's dresses to celebrate the century since the Princess' birth. The Lilian Look The Royal Palace of Stockholm (the Pillar Hall), 26 August-6 January 2016.
- A exhibition about Hedvig Eleonora and the Swedish Baroque - Focus: Gardens and nature. Drottningholm Palace, 30 April-6 January 2016.
- A exhibition about Hedvig Eleonora and the Swedish Baroque - Focus: Equestrian and the Princely role. Strömsholm Palace, 30 May-31 August.
- A exhibition about Hedvig Eleonora and the Swedish Baroque - Focus: Textiles. Gripsholm Castle, 14 May-6 January 2016.
