Per an interview with Bertil Bernadotte, he is still viewed as a traitor.

I look very much forward to bringing this gift home to my daughter, Princess Estelle, and to help her plant it in the garden of our home.
There, at the Haga palace, it will stand to remind her of her family history and of the long-standing friendship between France and Sweden. (...).
I look forward to the day when I will return. I can’t wait to show this beautiful place to our daughter, Princess Estelle, and her younger brother, Prince Oscar.

It is nice to see that, 200 years later, the link between the royal Bernadottes and their family's place of origin is flourishing. Perhaps the Crown Princess was motivated to study French in honor of her family history.

In what way are the French Bernadottes related to the Swedish branch?

When the King now inaugurates the newly placed statue on Slottsbacken, it has received a new granite base and added inscriptions to mark that the Bernadotte Dynasty has been 200 years on the Swedish throne.

I wonder whether Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte himself expected his dynasty to remain on the throne for this long ...

The re-dedication of the statue of king Karl XIV Johan on Slottsbacken. The weather was windy, rainy and cold.

King Carl Gustaf said in his speech:
This year it is 200 years since Crown Prince Karl Johan, born Jean Baptiste Bernadotte, rose up on the Swedish throne as King Karl XIV Johan.
This has been highlighted in various ways during the past year. And it is a great pleasure for me today to inaugurate his statue in its new location, here on Slottsbacken. After 164 years at Slussen Karl Johan is now back at the castle where he lived and worked.

I think they are descendants of brothers of Karl XIV Johan Bernadotte.

Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte aka Carl XIV John was quiet worried about revolution and he had even done some preparations in cause that him has leave the country quickly. So I guess that he would be quiet surprised that his dynasty is still on throne (altough without any power) and monarchy would be quiet popular.


Another thing is how he would react idea that there would be reigning queen. He lived in France where was quiet strict salic law.

Invigning av Karl XIV Johan-statyn på Slottssbacken - Sveriges Kungahus

Video and photos at court Instagram. At the video also people visiting the Bernadotte Apartments, which are open during the evening. The entry to the Bernadotte Apartments was free this evening. The king opened the gates and welcomed people to the Palace.

Jean Baptiste Bernadottes portrait shows him as a dashing, handsome Field Marshall.
Very much an action man in my view.
Wow 200 years already! A very interesting time/200 years for the Bernadotte descendants.
