Even *IF* this is true (and I highly doubt that it is), what possible difference can it make? Haakon obviously loved and cared for Olav so why does anyone feel the need to air out these unfounded speculations? It infuriates me.

Well, after reading the articles and seeing the pictures, ou can't deny that Olav, Harald and Haakon Magnus are related...

This is truly shocking!! A granddaughter of Queen Victoria bearing a child not of her husband and passing the child off as an heir?? Never!! What slanderous dirt!

The photographs of King Olav show a strong resemblance to his Grandfather,King Edward VII.

The most interesting part for me is to know what the Norwegian people will do with their royalty if they find that the rumour to be the truth. Do you think the Royal family will allow them doing DNA test?.

Sorry for little out of topic but the article above remind me other article about Duke of Edinburg has questioned Harry's real father because Harry resembleace much with Diana's ex boyfriend capt. Jammes Hewwit (???), if they find it as true, in my opinion, it still fortunate for royal family that Harry is not a future CP.

I think, royal can do some mistake like other. A long time ago in France had many rumour about "not every queen's children was King's biological children":o.

Harry resembles Lady Sarah McCorquodale's son. Charles is Harry's father and I wish people would stop spreading this vicious lie. Diana did not know James Hewitt until 1986.

I didn't mean to bring another discussion in this thread, just mention the simmilarity issue beetween the two royal news (unfortunately I don't save the news source). I don't pay much attention about this Harry rumour. If somebody interest to discuss about Harry rumour may be BRF forum has thread about it or we will get a warning from moderator

It's not a big deal, to anybody but historians, I think. The fact of the matter is that Olav's bloodline, whatever they may or may not be, doesn't matter. Had he been born after his father's ascension to the throne, it might have been quite another deal alltogether, but one of the select items that made Carl of Denmark a preferred candidate to the Norwegian throne, (his father-in-law/uncle aside) was the fact that he came with an heir. So, by electing Carl, they also elected little Alexander.

Do any of you know how many ladies who have problems to conceive, have sperm donors?! Shocking?! What about adoption? Does it make the adoptive parents any less a parent b/c they don't share the same DNA. Look at it this way: it's possible that it happened, and maybe this was the only way Hakoon(then Carl) and Maud had a chance of having a child.

Thanks for reply me. I also think that this Olav matter will not be a big deal for Norwegian people but since I donít know much about Norwegian RF history then my reason is more simple than yours, I think if Norwegian people can accept Mette-Marrit as their future queen consort and a mother of their future reigned queen, then who ever the real Olavís parents is not a big deal anymore for them (Our Norwegian fellow here please to correct me if I am wrong, that's why in my previouse post I asked what will be Norwegian People reaction).

About historian needs the true story, I think its also depend on Norwegian people willing to find out the truth or just let it burried and forgoten by the time. I think if it happen it will not be the first faux history in the world..... but why not, if this can bring more good than the bad impact for every part (of course it is just my own opinion)

dont hold your breath! these sorts of things rarely get translated. there is actually a must better chance of it being translated into German as people there are pretty obsessed with royalty.
