To be a successor to the Swedish throne the child has to be born in wedlock:

Meaning, if any member of the SRF has a child that was a result of a hook up, fling, long term affair without benefit of clergy at the end is ineligible for the throne.

This is quite interesting! I've always assumed that children born out of wedlock can't inherit the throne. But the law text about the line of succession doesn't mention anything about that. I've read it twice now, and can't find a paragraph about this.

Here's the link to the Swedish Act of Succession:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swedish_Act_of_Succession

The bullet points are as follows:

Only children born in wedlock may inherit the Throne.

Only the descendants of Carl XVI Gustaf may inherit the Throne.

A prince or princess in the line of succession shall belong to and profess the "pure evangelical faith", as defined in the Unaltered Augsburg Confession and the Uppsala Meeting of 1591, i.e. by implication the Church of Sweden.

The offspring of an approved marriage must be brought up within Sweden.

A prince or princess may not marry and remain in the line of succession without having received consent, upon application of the Monarch, from the Government of Sweden.

A prince or princess is also prevented from becoming monarch of another country, either by election or marriage, without the consent of the Monarch and the Government.

If any of these provisions are violated: all rights of succession for the person concerned and all descendants are lost.

It's not clear what constitute "legitimate"? Does the child have to be conceived and born in wedlock?

But that's not the Swedish Act of succession, it's a wikipedia article in english, and also just a summary. This is the law text in swedish: https://www.riksdagen.se/sv/Dokument...sfs-1810-0926/

I read it twice, and my university major was in history. I still can't see something in there that explicitly says that the child has to be born in wedlock. It talks about "bröstarvingar", but that just means children and grandchildren. The only explanation I can think of right now is that the word "bröstarvingar" meant "children within marriage" when the text was written, but that the word has now changed its meaning.

Edit: I think I found it! The text just before the paragraphs says "... hans kungl. höghets JOHAN BAPTIST JULII, furstens av Ponte-Corvo, äkta manliga bröstarvingar". The word "äkta" could be translated to "legitimate".

HRH Duke of Östergötland (prince Carl jr born 1911)
HRH Duke of Närke (prince Eugen born 19651865)

I wonder what the list would look like if girls were included
Shouldn't HM The Queen Dowager of Denmark, born HRH princess Lovisa of Sweden, also be on that list? I would guess that she had her father's permission to marry the future king of Denmark, and thus still be in the Order of Succession, if females had been permitted then. If so, wouldn't all of her children and her grandchildren (in 1916 eight children and nine more grandchildren than the four on the list above) also be in the Order of Succession? Among those children and grandchildren would have been the king of Denmark, the king of Norway, the crown prince of Denmark (the future husband of Ingrid), the crown prince of Norway (the future husband of Märtha) and the wife of the duke of Västergötland.

The monarchy of Sweden consists only of Carl Gustaf, his children, grandchildren and the descendants of his line. The Haga princesses and their children are not considered successors to the throne, as I understand it. Given that, I wonder if any pressure was put on Victoria, Carl Philip or Madeleine to continue the Bernadotte line when they married - Victoria because she's the heir, Carl Philip to continue the Bernadotte name in the traditional sense and Madeleine just to have another line of spares. And their choices - I wonder if one of the factors that was considered before the king and the Riksdag signed off on their joining the SRF was the ability to father or conceive a child. If that were true and if a prince or princess' choice was unable to produce an heir, would that have been a disqualifer? As I read the law an adopted child could not be a successor, only legitimate (born of a marriage) children of the blood royal.

Back to legitimacy. I think that was put into the law not-so-royal children that are the result of a hook up, fling or long term affair cannot go to court and sue for succession rights.
