It's 3 million US Dollars. He wasn't terribly rich.

It seems that Sweden, despite having chosen one of Napoléon's Field Marshals as King (Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte), does not follow the Code Napoléon? In most continental countries every child has the right on an equal part of the inheritance. Disinheriting a child is almost impossible. I am surprised that in egalitarian Sweden it is possible to make a difference in children.

Of course fideï commissionary arrangements are nothing new (it is a derivate of Roman law) but in most countries also these are no longer allowed and transfered into Foundations and Trusts which are no natural person and therefore not subjected to inheritance laws.

Very surprising to learn that making differences between children is still allowed in Sweden, although the daughters will be "compensated" via their mother's will (so again making differences between children).

But okay, the beautiful ancestral estates reman with the son, the current Friherre. So I very much understand the objective of their late father, which was to ensure to pass his family's patrimonium complete.

That is "the private wealth". In reality the bulk was stacked in a Fideï Commis (the ancient Roman predecessor of a Foundation), including beautiful ancestral estates.

It is like the Bernadottes being "poor" while they are bedecked with diamonds (from the Bernadotte Foundation) or enjoy Italian Masters at their walls (from the Galliera Foundation). One can be very rich in daily reality and not so rich on paper...
