About princess Eugénie (Charlotta Eugenia Augusta Amalia Albertina) at the website of Fridhem
The princess Eugenie was a very special royalty of her time as she spent almost all her energy on helping those in need. She built up a considerable social charity network and helped many people from poverty and sickness.
She was the daughter of King Oscar I and Queen Josephine Bernadotte of Sweden and Norway.Eugenie was brought up at the Stockholm castle with her four brothers Karl XV, Gustaf, Oscar II and August. Their childhood was in many ways characterized by music as well as art. The King and Queen who both had artistic aptitude thought the children should be given training in these areas, even though art and music were more considered as leisure time and should not interfere with their school work. Eugenie had a natural talent for both painting and composing. She did a lot of different paintings, but became most successful in sculpturing. Music played also an important role in her life and she composed a great deal, essentially for choirs, hymns and piano.
She came to Gotland in the Summer of 1860 in order to cure her health problems. Her doctor thought a stay on Gotland, well-known for its mild climate and fresh air, would do good for her weak lungs. During her first stay she became very fond of Gotland and she decided to build her very own Summer residence which she gave the name Fridhem. The economie house was built in 1861 and the following year the main building ”corps de logis” stood ready. Eugenie spent all her remaining Summers at Fridhem.

The kings and queens of Sweden – from Vasa to Bernadotte
The history of the Kingdom of Sweden stretches back more than 1,000 years. Its monarchs can be recorded by name and approximate year since the late 10th century, beginning with Erik Segersäll. Gustav Vasa came to power in 1521, and is usually regarded as the founder of the modern Swedish state. Since then, Sweden has had five royal dynasties.

Eugénie and the music
Oskar I and Josefina placed great emphasis on the children's aesthetic and musical upbringing. Early on, teachers were hired for Princess Eugénie and her four brothers to develop their artistic and musical talents. Princess Eugénie drew and sculpted, her many watercolor paintings in the royal collections provide snapshots of court life. During her time, Princess Eugénie became an acclaimed composer, who was happy to write her own lyrics. She was elected to The Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, which at the time was not obvious to a woman - even if she was born a princess.
Welcome on Sunday 11 October at 15.00 to the Royal Chapel to listen to some of Princess Eugénie's works. The Royal Chapel's Vocal Ensemble and court organist Mary Ljungquist Hén perform music and the court chaplain Jan-Olof Johansson helds a worship with lyrics by Lina Sandell, poet, author, hymn writer and close friend of Princess Eugénie.
Music: Piece from 'Guds Frid' composed by Princess Eugénie, performed by the Royal Chapel's Vocal Ensemble.

The Royal Armoury continues to highlight the royal women and their roles, by starting a digital series on social media with the theme Royal Women. It will be broadcast and shown during the autumn. Fascinating destinies that have been overshadowed, women who have all lived in the immediate vicinity of power and in various ways taken on the role of princess or queen.
- We will meet Gustav Vasa's daughters, Kristina av Holstein-Gottorp, Maria Eleonora, Queen Josefina and Crown Princess Margareta, among others. We will also pay attention to Queen Kristina and celebrate her birthday digitally with a week-long program on social media, says Magdalena Piotrowska, curator and program manager at The Royal Armoury.

Favorite from the royal collections - Sofia Albertina by Roslin. On Tuesdays, the Royal Palace's museum teachers take over the Instagram account and presents his favorite objects from the royal collections. Museum teacher Gabriela Bohlin talks about a portrait of a princess: The portrait shows the then 22-year-old princess Sofia Albertina, the youngest child and only daughter of King Adolf Fredrik and Queen Lovisa Ulrika. The painting of the princess was made by Alexander Roslin when he was visiting Stockholm for a year.
The portrait can be seen at Drottningholm Palace.

Princess Eugénie (who is sitting on the back of the sledge in the middle of the picture) is sledding in Haga park in 1848, with sisters Mina and Charlotte Stjerneld and Cathinka and Pauline Due. The painting is her own, in the royal collections are Princess Eugénie's many drawings and watercolor paintings that testify to court life during the 19th century.

I remember seeing several of princess Eugenie's drawings and watercolours at the Gotland Art Museum in the 1990, but I don't think they are on display in Visby at the moment, as the Art Museum had to close down due to dampness, and there were a fear that would damage the items there. It's a pity as there were quite a lot of lovely paintings and other objects exhibited there.
The princess was very skilled in her little drawings and watercolours of her daily life.

Princess Cecilia (1807-1844)
Princess Cecilia was born in 1807 in Stockholm as the youngest child of Gustaf IV Adolf and Queen Fredrika. Already after a couple of years, she and her parents and siblings were forced to leave the country after Gustaf IV Adolf was deposed as King of Sweden in 1809.
Cecilia then lived first in Baden and after her mother's death in 1826 with her brother Gustaf in Vienna. She married in 1831 August (1783-1853), who was Grand Duke of Oldenburg from 1829 until his death. The marriage to Cecilia was his third.
Cecilia was musical and interested in art and science. In the marriage with August, three sons were born, and she died in 1844 after giving birth to her son Elimar (1844-1895). The two eldest sons died in infancy.
The painting is by Theodor Hamacher.
