Sibylla von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha, Princess von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha, Duchess von Sachsen (18. 01. 1908 - 28. 11. 1972)
married on 19. 10. 1932 to Gustaf Adolf Bernadotte, Prince of Sweden, Duke of Vasterbotten (22. 04. 1906 - 26. 01. 1947)
On the time of their wedding she was 24, he 26.
When he died she was 39 he 40 (nearly 41).

Silvia meet the Crown Prince Carl Gustav during Summer Olympics in Munich from 26 August to 11 September 1972. Than I think she could (but rather don't) meet Sibylla.

I haven't found one yet, so as far as I know there aren't any. But I'm constantly keeping an eye out for older royalty books, and if I ever find one on only Sibylla, I'll report it to you. The best chance to get pictures of her is to buy older books on the Swedish Royal Family, like the annual review books.

Princess Sibylla never met Silvia. She was ill with cancer at the time that Crown Prince Carl Gustaf met Silvia Sommerlath, and passed away only a short time later.

So Sibylla was a great grandchild of Victoria just like her husband? Yikes! :eek: Still, they were only second cousins...

It is true. She was very German, too German for Sweden, and she's been described as a princess, who wasn't popular before she was old.

Probably not. She had to stay true to the memory of her husband the heir. Royal widows seldom re-marry. Just think of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who lived as a queen dowager for almost fifty years!

I'm curious as to why the King didn't name any one of his daughter's after his mother. Sybilla is a beautiful name. Any ideas?

Marengo 11-28-2007 12:27 PM

Perhaps because Princess Margaretha, Mrs. Ambler already has a daughter named after Sibylla, namely Sibylla Ambler, it can get confusing to have a lot of people with the same name around in one family, which I know from personal experience since half the women in my paternal family are called Marie and variations on that theme while on the maternal side it is all Anna and variations on it.

Furienna 12-16-2007 07:23 AM

Ha ha... Yeah, that wasn't good.

Hanna Regina 12-16-2007 09:04 AM

Well, the description mentions scout uniforms, maybe that's how they looked back then. They sure aren't pretty in any case...
Prince (not Crown Prince) Gustav Adolf's hat is almoust as big as an umbrella!

The Princesses have eight names together, so it shouldn't have been very difficult to squeeze in Sibylla there, even though the King's niece is named Sybilla.
He didn't choose Gustaf as one of his son's names either, and that was the name of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather as well as being his own name. Princess Christina's son is named Gustaf, and the King and Queen chose the more personal Edmund, which was the family's name for the King's father, but still.
Perhaps these names will show up in the next generation.:rolleyes:
