Not to mention that both Margareth of Connaught and Victoria of Baden were daughters of prussian princesses.

Carl Gustav looks a lot like his father.

He was an interesting royal.As I read somewhere, historians protray him as sympathetic to the Nazi movement in Germany.Some even called him "The German Prince".However there is not a lot of proof of this,as this was just speculation.

Many of the Swedish royal princes have got married in the bride's home country, Gustav VI Adolf got married twice in England; Gustav V married Victoria of Baden inKarlsruhe in Germany; Oscar II married Sophia of Nassau in Germany, Oscar I and Joséphine of Leuchtenberg were wedded twice, first a Catholic cermony in Germany without the groom present and then a Lutheran cermony in Stockholm. So Gustav Adolf followed in the tradition of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

It was fabulous to learn that so many Swedish princes married their fiancées in the bride's home country.

Prince Gustaf Adolf died 70 years ago on 26th January. Svensk Damtidning has a gallery of his life.
Bildextra! Så minns vi kungens far _ Svensk Damtidning

Svensk Damtidning has in this week's issue an article of prince Gustaf Adolf. Although he was baptized as Gustaf Adolf, everyone in the family called him Edmund. And his mother Margareta sometimes called him Västerbotten because she thought it sounded so nice.

Prince Gustaf Adolf handed out a military diploma to an officer in 1920.

Seems intresting person. Just wondering what would had happened if he would had survived. Politically hardly much and king would still become pretty powerless. But to royal family it would has much consequences. CG would know his father and him would become king much later, perhaps in end of 1990's. This all would surely change his personality dramatically. And another question is would CG have younger siblings? And would CG be allowed marry Silvia Sommerlath or someone else commoner. But I think that he would be allowed do that even if GA is bit relucant for that.

Edmund would be a great name for another baby boy in the family if one would be born.
