Oscar III?

King Gustaf V's full name was Oscar Gustaf Adolf. Are there any early records where he was listed as Prince Oscar of Sweden?

No. His spoken name from birth was his 2:nd name Gustaf :)

On Grand Ladies website, SUBALBUM on Victoria of Baden mentioned:

Victoria of Baden made immense contributions to making Sweden a constitutional monarchy by her opposition to progressive forces in Sweden and her pro-German policies during World War I and, probably, with her Prussian demeanor.

She sure did. Just saying her name would get my dear, sweet old grandfather going for quite a while and he wasn't even born until 1928. She definitely wasn't a popular person.

I'm a bit confused by the flowers icons (especially in combination with the post of JR76); am i right to conclude that her "immense contribution" was in a negative way?

She was pro-german during a war against germany, she spend very little time in her country (Sweden) and she was opposed to people trying to make changes in Sweden (and as JR said, she was very unpopular with the Swedes).
How was her contribution to a constitutional monarchy positiv?

By being a negative and much disliked person she provided the spark that people needed to change things. At least that's how I'm reading it.

By that regards, Napoleon III had a positive influence on French republicanism.

I read it the same way, by opposing to such changes she made them felt to be even more necessary. But just like Napoleon III's contributions to French republicanism, I don't think that such contributions were voluntary.

Okay, this i understand but i don't think she'd be happy that we consider her a positive influence on something she didn't want to happen
i guess i was just confused by the flower icons

There's a saying that it was Gustav V's embroidering that kept the swedes out of the war. Whenever Victoria would start nagging him about Germany and the war he would bend over his needlework and say "Not now Victoria, I'm counting" until she stopped and went away.

"Make embroidery not war"
Must have been a difficult situation for him, but incredibly annoying for her that he brushed her off

She was a tough cookie so I'm sure she could take it.
