Yes, they were quite close. Munthe spend his last years as a guest of Gustav V in the Royal Palace in Stocholm where he also died in 1949.

Where did you get these photos from, Kmerov? Are they from a book or a magazine?

In costume as Gustav II Adolf and Ebba Brahe

Wonder how they felt playing those tragic roles, considering that their marriage was not exactly happy, with Gustaf being at least bisexual and Victoria in love with Axel Munthe. Of course Victoria with her sense of duty, could both have written the lines Gustav II Adolf's mother Queen Christina of Holstein-Gottorp wrote to Ebba Brahe on the window of the garden pavillion at Braheholmen: "Det ena du vill, det andra du skall, så brukar det gå i dylika fall." (This you want, that you shall - that is the way in cases like these.) and Ebba's answer on the window "Jag böjer mig för viljan din och finner mig i lotten min" (I bend to your will and accept my fate.)

Thank you! Could you name the titles of these books ? Maybe I will search after them.
