Does anyone know the magazine "Queen"?

I've never heard of it before, but it seems to be a Swedish royal magazine. Is it good?

I haven't read the magazine, but Roger who is the editor (???) of that new magazine, posts regulary at a neighbouring messageboard.
The newest number of "Queen" is available now The Scandinavian Royals Message Board: "Queen" # 3 & lots of interesting royal news!

I read in the newspaper that some member of the Riksdag (parlament) had handed in an proposal to activate the royal orders for Swedish citizens - something that i would very much like them to do. I hope that the riksdag will vote yes to this but i´m guessing no...

King and Czech Republic

I read that Swedish king really likes Czech historical monuments (in Prague, town center in Telc,...). Is it true? And do you know when he visited Czech republic (probably not only one time)? I would like to find some informations about his visits (or visits of any members of Swedesh Royal Family) in my country. Can anyone help me?

The royal couple went to Czech Republic in 1995.
Here is a link with information:
1990-1999 - Kungahuset [NS4 version]

I didn't know more about the swedish royal family and CR.

I went back and saw some old blogs about what to expect if you attended a royal banquet or dinner in Sweden. Sounds very interesting. I would imagine the dress code would be formal attire. This information would be very helpful to someone who is invited to such an event and has never attended such an event.

He was a member of the party and he joined before they came to power, but he wasn't a party functionar or toke any active part in the war. He was a buiness man and probably profited by his party membership but that seems to be all.

As I have learned in my history classes and as I have learned from my grandparents there was no chance to escape the party if you want to be sure that you can care for yourself and your family. If you decide to fight against the regime you had no chance. You lost your job or you had no chance to make career. As far as I know Walther Sommerlath had to care for three children (plus Silvia in 1943) and his wife. <so maybe there was no other chance for him.

Correct. But he joined the party before they came into power and thus before it was needed. If he done it after they got to power it would pretty much be a non-issue.

I know that he had joined the party before they came into power. They got so many members because of their propaganda (the right word??). They put old values on their agenda which were missed since the German Empire was resolved in 1918. They put church on a very high level and this old institution had a more higher value in those days than today. As I have learned and as I was told by many older people it wasn't possible to foresee how they will use the church and many other things to synchronize all parts of official life in Germany in the end of the 1920's. SO all in all at first sight this new party in the 1920 didn't show all the bad characteristics which led into this big misery in the end of the 1930's starting in 1933. Unfortunately many people were dazzled by the party program in the beginning and than there was no opportunity to get out of this machinery. I think that many of us had also joined the party when we had lived in the 1920. They arranged new jobs and put the spotlight on old values in an time of desperation and aimlessness caused by political changes and other things.

For example in my country lived many Germans on border with Germany and they wanted be a part of Germany, they liked Hitler and his party simply because they started solve problems which economic crise had caused . And when it happened - Treaty of Mnichov gave this part of Czechoslovakia to Hitler they were not happy (some of them was, but majority not) because they had thought something little bit different about how the situation will look and it didnť look how they had wanted. But they could not change it.
So I think the same feelings should be in Germany and the same could feel him. He was a partisan, a "fan" of this party because he saw that this party do something good for state economy or have a good programme for the state...he couldnť imagine when he became a partisan that in future this party will do what it did...

In bad economic times an extremist leader often emerges. This person tells you that if you trust in him he will solve all the economic woes and other problems. He's good at deception. Once he gets into power and is comfortable, then his true colors are shown. He uses children and young adults to further his cause.

I took a class in college called the Rise and Fall of Nazi Germany. Although it was a history class, one of the focuses on the class was how easily people can be manipulated by someone. We saw a film of a Nazi Youth Rally. There was no subtitles so a retired German Professor who had spoken to our class the day before translated. The repetitive music got on everyone's nerves. The speeches were like pep rallies (getting everyone to wind up). Most of the people on the film were teens and young children. The film had been shortened to 2 hours but after 45 minutes, everyone in the class was bored. The point of the film was to show how easily people can be manipulated especially children and young adults.

The retired German Professor grew up in Germany during that time period (he was a child). His father went to prison for questioning Hilter's policies. His father was beaten and tortured in prison. He was imprisoned for many years. He finally was released after the war. He was lucky to still be alive as many people were executed for questioning Hilter's authority.

Question about the Royal Gardeners

I am searching for information about my great-great grandfather. He was a Gardener for the King of Sweden. I don't have a time line other then my great-great grandfather's name is John G. Peterson - born June 6th, 1830.

He was well educated and was a horticulterist for the Kings Palace.

Not sure if anyone can help point me in the right direction but I thought I would try.

Thank you,

Nancy

Coat of Arms of the Royal Children:

Victoria

Carl Philip
File:Prins Carl Philip vapen med Serafimerorden.svg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Madeleine

Does anyone know when they received them and when they are used? Who designed them and do the animals at the bottom left have any special meaning?
