Prince Axel of Denmark and his family
« on: January 15, 2006, 06:56:50 AM »
She was born Princess Margaretha of Sweden, june 25 1899. She was the eldest child of Prince Carl (1861-1951) duke of Westrogothia and Ingeborg (1878-1958) born princess of Denmark. She had two sisters, Martha born in 1901 and Astrid, born in 1905. In 1911, was born a little brother, prince carl, beloved son of their mother. On May 22 1919, she married her cousin prince Axel of Denmark and they had two sons : George and Fleming. She died january 04 1977.

I have no pics of this princess but I know she was very pretty, perhaps more than her sisters Martha and Astrid.

Just wondering if the individual on the right should read Count Flemming?

I read somewhere that said Count Flemming is very senile now.  :(

Well, he is more than that! Count Flemming died in 2002.

The family still appears to be quite regal in appearance considering they lost most of their money when the Landmandsbank failed in the early 1920s.

The senile story came from the team who made the TV series of the "decendents of Christian IX".  :-[

In 1922, the  Landmandsbank, Scandinavia's largest bank failed and had to be bailed out by the Danish government. It was quite a mess....the bank and it's directors had lied about assets, been involved in stock swindles, there was embezzlement, missing financial records, etc.

Prince Carl and Princess Ingeborg of Sweden, among other members of royalty were stock holders and they lost the majority of what they had invested.  And what they invested was the majority of what they themselves had.  They had to eventually give up the huge home in which they lived and moved into a still spacious, but less expensive to maintain flat.  Their children, particularly Margretha and Carl were the ones most affected in the long term with Martha and Astrid eventually finding more financial security in their marriages. (No, I am not suggesting that they married for money.  lol)

Prince Axel of Denmark (husband of Margretha of Sweden) also lost a fortune in the  Landmandsbank scandal.   However, his father Prince Valdemar did help him out financially  from time to time.

Axel's oldest brother Prince Aage, Count af Rosenborg apparently had his hands all mucky from his involvement in   Landmandsbank and supposition had it the only thing that saved him from criminal charges and imprisonment was that Aage joined the French Foreign Legion right after the bank collapse.

When Countess Ruth married Prince Flemming in 1949, she was astonished at the lack of funds she married into and even commented as such in later years.  Fortunately for Prince Flemming, the family of his new wife was wealthy.
