Questions about Titles

I hope this thread hasn't been opened yet.

My question: does the The Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland hold two substantive titles or one substantive title? Does she hold one dukedom called Hälsingland och Gästrikland or does she hold one dukedom called Hälsingland and another dukedom called Gästrikland?

"Gästrikland" (where I was born) and "Hälsingland" (where I live ) are two provinces/landscapes in Sweden and together they are united as a county called "Gävleborgs län". The bounds between G and H are strong and I guess thats the reason M got both.... (and our governor (landshövding) Barbro Holmberg is Tiger Wood's mother in law )

Your reply confused me again rop81 said that The Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland holds two seperate dukedoms. From your post, it seems that Hälsingland and Gästrikland is one dukedom based on a county called Gävleborgs län

14 July 1977 – 31 December 1979Her Royal Highness Princess Victoria of Sweden
1 January 1980–presentHer Royal Highness The Crown Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Västergötland.

So she turned 18 in 1995 yeah? So she was titled the Crown Princess, i'm guessing?

Svenska flaggans dag 1983 - del 1 - Öppet arkiv | SVT Play

In this video from 1983 the presenter refers to 'kronprinsessan Victoria'. I'm not sure how she was addressed up to the age of 18. Did her teachers and staff at the Court have to call her 'Your Royal Highness'?

She was adressed "kronprinsessan" at formal occasions but in everyday life at school the teachers called her Victoria.

Will Carl-Philips children also get a duchy? Are there any "laws" concerning this?

I guess that they will be H(R)H Princes/ses of Sweden.

With Madeleines children, I think they will "only" be NN name-of-her-husband (currently O'Neill).

No one knows for sure. There is no rules regarding this so it is up to the king and the government to decide. Carl Philips eventual children will be descendants through a male line so i would be surprised if they didn't get the title H.R.H Prince/Princess of Sweden. Don't know if they will be given a dukedom. The latest example of a children to the brother of a monarch was
"the mainau prince" Lennart Bernadotte, born as H.R.H Prince Lennart of Sweden. He was created Duke of Småland. Lennart was the son of Prince Wilhelm who was brother to Gustaf VI Adolf.

Don't know if Madeleines kids will have any princely titles. I don't think so. Maybe she will give up her H.R.H title upon marriage and then they won't be in line of succession to the throne.
They must be restrective with the titles. If not, we will have lots and lots of Princes and Princess'es in a few generations.

Unlike most European Royal Houses, the line of the succession to the Swedish Throne is very limited. Originally determined by the articles of the 1810 Constitution (which included all agnatic Bernadotte descendants), the 1980 changes limited the succession only to the descendants of the current king, Carl XVI Gustaf, excluding all other Bernadotte branches. Thus, there are currently, there are only four people in it - Crown Princess Victoria, Princess Estelle, Prince Carl-Philip and Princess Madeline.

Even if the Crown Princess goes on to have 2-3 more children, Prince Carl Philip will still be very high in the succession line; as such, it is extremely likely that his children will be Royal Highnesses. They will also most probably be given titles, though not Dukedoms - Earldoms are much more likely.

Princess Madeline's husband is likely to have titles jure uxoris (though his wife), thus becoming Duke of Halsingland and Gastrikland, just as Prince Daniel is Duke of Vastergotland. Their children will likely be nobles but not royals; in other words, they won't be Royal Highnesses but will probably have courtesy titles of counts and countesses.

In Belgium, Princess Astrid's husband and children were given the titles after they changed to absolute primogeniture so all King Albert's grandchildren are Princes and Princesses of Belgium. I'm not sure about Madeleine's future children, though. When she was engaged to Jonas Bergstrom, Jonas was to be Duke but not Prince.

But Princess Astrids children were the only granndchildren for a long time and it seemed likely that they might eventually inherit the Belgiun throne. Hence they were made Princes and Princess of Belgium. They were already Imperial Highness through their father.
