Help Please

Hi, my name is Kayla, I am a student at Escondido Charter High School and I am trying to do a report on Prince Carl, and I cant seem to find enough information on him and his work with the Swedish Red Cross. I know that he was the president and thats about it. But did you know that he was a laureate for the Nobel Peace Prize?? Well, I would really appreciate it if you could give me some more information on him it would be great help.

Thank you,
Kayla Marie

Which Prince Carl are you talking about? Obviously not the present Prince Carl-Philip.

Prince Carl of Sweden and Norway, son of King Oscar and his wife née Princess Sophia of Nassau, was nominated in 1919. Prince Carl married Princess Ingborg of Denmark and they had 3 daughters and 1 son.

Prince Carl (1861-1951) and Princess Ingeborg of Sweden

You're welcome, in fact, Prince Carl wasn't the only Royal to be nominated.

Royal nominees:
Tsar Nikolai II of Russia (1901), Prince Carl of Sweden (1919), King Albert I of
Belgium (1922), Emperor Haile Selassi of Ethiopia (1938), King Paul I of Greece
(1950), Princess (and later Queen) Wilhelmina of the Netherlands (1951)
