Arvfustens Palace, Stockholm

Arvfustens Palace

In 1783, Princess Sofia Albertina, sister of King Gustaf III, acquired the land where another residence for her was to be built. After Princess Sofia Albertina’s death in 1829, many royals lived there during the course of time - until 1902, when the State purchased it to use if for the foreign administration.

Today, Arvfustens Palace is the seat of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. I've attended some social occasions there, and must say that it's a marvelous palace/residence! It has fantastic interiours that are not too much, but very well balanced - and even if I wouldn't mind if it still was a royal residence - it think it suits wonderfully well as the base for the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. and the best room in it is the office of the Minister for Foreign Affairs (who heads the ministry).

Picture 1, 2 & 3 = Arvfurstens Palace
Picture 4 = The Minister for Foreign Affairs in her office (you can see a bit of it in this pic)

How does this Palace lie in relation to Gamla Stan and proximity to Riddarhuset or Kungliga Slottet?

This is a bit to much to explain only by words, cause if you don't know all the places and streets - it gets a bit too much to understand. So here is a map - the black, white and red spot is where Arvfurstens Palace is located. As you can see, the Royal Palace of Stockholms is quite close.

I sort of figured it was close by.

Thanks for the map, GD.

Here are three pictures of the former royal residence Arvfurstens Palace (you can read about it in one of my earlier posts), today the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, taken during the National Day of Mourning this past weekend on New Year's Day, 1 January. I'm sorry for the guys in the pics, but I think that in these pics you can see the residence in relation to the Royal Palace of Stockholm...

Prince Carl, Duke of Vastergotland, and his wife, Princess Ingeborg divided their time between Arvfustens Palace and summers in Fridhem.

At a Bukowskis auction

The Royal collections at Stockholm Palace. The model commissioned both for King Gustav IV Adolfs and the duchess (Queen) Hedvig Elisabeth Charlotta.
At the inventory 1878 the stools, HGK 230 - 233 were placed in Arvfurstens Palace; one pair in the room of the ladies-in-waiting and one pair in storage.
In 1883 all four stools were sold.
Of the remaining set a pair of stools stands today at Haga Palace in the Crown Princess couple´s salon.
A Royal pair of late Gustavian stools by,Erik Öhrmark and Pehr Ljung after design by Louis Masreliez, late 18th century. - Bukowskis

This isn't the palace that was too close to the German embassy for the fleeing Crown Princess Märtha of Norway and her children to stay in 1940, is it?

No, this isn't the palace that you refer to, but in reality there was no palace. While Crown Princess Märtha's parents lived next-door to the German embassy they lived in an apartment not a palace. Princess Ingeborg found their neighbours so disturbing that she had the windows facing the embassy blocked off for the duration of the war. The German ambassador, Prince Victor of Wied, was a close relative to the Swedish royal family and his daughter Elisabeth was almost considered a member of the family until she died in 1985.
After crossing the border to Sweden and spending a few days at a hotel in Sälen, Märtha first stayed at Frötuna Manor with her cousin Count Carl of Wisborg for ten days before moving on to Drottningholm Palace as the guest of her uncle, King Gustav V, for two months. Finally she stayed another two months at Ulriksdal Palace with her cousin Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf and his wife Louise.
Contrary to WWII lore Märtha and her children were lovingly received by all her family and not driven out of the country by conspiring Nazi relatives who wanted to hand her over to the Germans.

Did Carl and Ingeborg leave Arvfustens because of economy, or was there another reason?

Arvfurstens palats wasn't Carl's private property and was sold by the Royal family to the Swedish Foreign office in 1905. Carl and Ingeborg did loose a big part of their fortune in the early twenties which caused them to move from Byströmska villan on Djurgården into an apartment in 1923, but the main reason for them moving out of the palace was that they didn't liked it. They wanted a more private home closer to nature and at first lived at Villa Parkudden and then later bought Byströmska villan, both at Djurgården.
